No Longer Living A Life Of Defeat

 

I am 46 years old and had suffered from major depression throughout my entire life. It intensified in my late 30s.

I was raised as a Christian and throughout my life, my mother has been very concerned about me. As a child, she would bring me to prayer partners or pastors for prayers. I remember experiencing the touch of God on numerous occasions after leaving these meetings.

However, I was very stubborn. I did not know how to move forward and would end up backsliding and drifting away from God. I became an easy target for the enemy and bought into so many of his lies and accusations. This almost destroyed my life. I attempted suicide three times, overdosing on my medications and had to be admitted into the intensive care unit.

I blamed God numerous times for my situation and would even curse Him. I felt that if He loved me so much then why would He allow Satan to make me feel so bad?

Every time I tried to get back on the saddle in my walk with God, I would feel His touch, but soon afterwards, I would do a spiritual face-plant. The enemy would accuse me, and it would take root in my mind. I would spin out of control and fall into another depression. I never felt I could live up to a standard of being worthy of God.

About two years ago, I began listening to Pastor Joseph Prince. The gospel of grace has changed my entire world. The work that God is doing through his ministry is just awesome. It has given me success in my walk with God.

Now, I know that I am the righteousness of God in Christ. Knowing that my standing with God is wrapped up in Jesus, I have learnt to keep my feelings separate from my identity. I have learnt not to trust in my feelings alone, but to always go back to being conscious of my right standing in Christ.

Walk With God And Daughter’s Studies Transformed By Grace

 

I have been a Christian for many years and attended church regularly. I always thought that to know God was to be in church, attend care group meetings, do the right things and be obedient. However, I didn’t enjoy spending time in the Word because I didn’t seem to be able to get any revelation from God.

Then in mid–2014, the Lord led me to listen to Pastor Prince’s sermons. Week after week, day after day, I kept receiving the revelation that I am God’s beloved and that I am the righteousness of God in Christ.

His grace empowered me and eventually, something changed inside my heart. I enjoyed worshipping the Lord, reading His Word on my own and listening to sermons.

Over the last two–and–a–half years, I began to rebuild my personal relationship with God. I would receive revelations whenever I read His Word, read or listen to Pastor Prince’s messages. I also began to meditate on verses that speak to me.

I started to receive God’s promises and rhema word, and began to change. The most visible change in me was that I was no longer a harsh mum who believed that results were everything. I used to scold my daughter very badly when she did not do well in school.

But after hearing Pastor Prince’s messages on grace, I now speak grace to my children because His grace governs the way I lead my life.

Then, my daughter started to receive her breakthrough in her studies. From a semestral assessment score of 235, she went on to score 266 for her Primary School Leaving Examinations last year. God is amazing! I was also inspired by the Lord to set up a personal blog to pen down all my revelations from Him after learning so much about His grace.

Thank you, Pastor Prince, for preaching the message of grace. It has changed my life, my believing and my thinking! I am so in love with our Lord Jesus Christ now!

No Longer An Angry Mum

 

I used to struggle a lot with my temper towards my children, especially my eldest boy, in the area of his studies. During the run–up to exams, daily blow–ups were a fixture in our household.

After every incident, I would pray and ask God to change me. At that time, we were still relatively new to New Creation Church. I would still deal with sin the same way I was taught in the past. I would confess my sin to God, and ask for His forgiveness. Then, I would vow not to do it again.

I employed all kinds of strategies to try and stop losing my temper by counting to 10, taking deep breaths, leaving the room, screaming into a pillow and beating up a pillow. I even made a poster for my children to wave in front of my face. It read, “Mummy, you are raising your voice! Please leave the room NOW to cool down!” Needless to say, none of these worked for long.

I spent a lot of time after each relapse wondering why God was not answering my prayer and changing me. This sense of failure added to the guilt and worries I had over the impact of my actions and my son’s studies, and these led to even more anger outbursts. I dreaded the year my son had to take his Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE). I couldn’t bear to think how I would turn out when I was already so out of control in a normal year.

Now that we are seven months into the PSLE year, it suddenly occurred to me that this year has been incredibly peaceful! The exam is just two months away and I couldn’t quite believe it. Even my children and husband all agreed that my temper had improved a lot this year.

The truth of the matter is, sometime in the middle of last year, my family faced with new challenges that took my mind off my temper problem. The challenges were so overwhelming that I desperately sought Jesus in order to cope. I began to play Pastor Prince’s sermons regularly in the car and also read regularly from grace–based devotionals and the Psalms, and declared out loud that I am the righteousness of God in Christ whenever I felt fearful.

These constant reminders of Christ’s finished work, His unceasing love and my unassailable position in Him, had given me such peace, security and joy to face all the challenges. This deep peace even extended to the area of my son’s studies. I have not used any of those strategies to control my temper this year because the things that used to rouse my anger easily in the past, no longer made me angry.

Because of the challenges, I had to return to work and had even less time to guide my boy in his studies. To counter my anxiety over this, we took to praying together in the car every morning when I sent my children to school. We would start by reminding ourselves of what Jesus has done, and of our righteousness in Him. We would also remind ourselves that all the blessings Jesus deserves, we now receive because of His finished work and that His supply of grace is never–ending. Then, we would pray for God to give my son the desire to study and for God to empower him to act out this desire.

For Chinese language, my son’s weakest subject, we would remind ourselves that God created the Chinese language and that He is the best speaker and writer of it in the whole universe, and because He is with my son, he can draw from Him whenever he needs guidance. Praying daily had really contributed to the peace I had over the exams.

It is very clear to me now that when I was preoccupied with my temper problem and trying by my efforts to overcome it, I was bound to fail. Victory only came when I was no longer focused on the problem, not even on trying to solve it, but focused instead on Jesus and His finished work. All glory be to God!

Thank you, Pastor Prince and New Creation Church for teaching so clearly about God’s grace.
