Turned To God And Career Turned Around

 

Six months ago, I attended New Creation Church for the first time. Back then, I was tired and weary from life’s struggles. My boyfriend of five years had left me for another girl. After graduation, I had been in and out of two jobs. While I would start each job with much enthusiasm, I always ended up disappointed and disillusioned. I stopped turning to God because I felt like I had failed Him as a youth leader and a Christian whose life is not glorious.

But the moment I stepped into the Rock Auditorium, I felt a warm and uplifting sensation inside me. At that service, Pastor Prince shared about the unconditional love of Jesus despite our failures and imperfections. When I heard that, I started crying and could not stop. As Pastor Prince led the congregation in a prayer, I whispered in my heart, asking God to help me believe that His love for me is truly unconditional. As I stepped out of the service that day, I felt an unexplainable peace in my heart.

After that, I took a one-week trip to Perth, bringing along Pastor Prince’s Unmerited Favor book. I read the book every day and my emotional pain was replaced by love, peace and joy. By the time I returned to Singapore, I was excited to discover what God had in store for me.

On my day of return, I received a job offer from a global company. What was even more amazing was that four other global companies were also calling me up for interviews!

I accepted the first offer I received. When I started on my new job, there was an adjustment period. But this time round, enlightened by Pastor Prince's Unmerited Favor book, I would make it a point to spend time with God and declare good things before I step into the office. Even if I had made mistakes at work or worked till very late the night before, I would still go to work every morning with a confident expectation of good.

Soon, I was confirmed as a permanent staff with a pay higher than my previous jobs. At the age of 26, I was also featured in a local newspaper article spotlighting on new developments in my industry. I know this could only happen because of God’s unmerited favour on me.

Thank you, Pastor Prince, for writing the book Unmerited Favor which changed my life. Praise the Lord that He led me to New Creation Church!

Received A PhD Scholarship In America After Resting In The Lord

 

I have been attending New Creation Church since 2003. In 2008, I moved to Australia, where I did my honours in psychology. Upon graduation, I wanted to further my studies. I did not manage to get into a masters programme in Australia so I moved back to Singapore where I managed to get a job as a psychologist.

In 2009, I decided to apply for graduate school again. This time, I applied to PhD programmes in America. I was full of confidence when sending out my applications, putting anointing oil on each form I mailed out, speaking favour over them and getting my friends to speak favour over my applications. I was very sure that I would get a place.

However, in the beginning of 2010, I started receiving rejection after rejection. It was devastating. The first school that rejected me was the University of Texas at Austin, America, which was my first choice because it has a very strong neuroimaging programme in its clinical psychology programme. The reason cited was a lack of funding. The professor who reviewed my application was very apologetic and encouraged me to reapply next year.

I felt very bitter and was very upset, but praise God for anointed pastors in our church. I was attending GenRev, New Creation Church’s youth ministry, regularly and during one of the services, Pastor Benjamin Lim mentioned a line that I knew God wanted me to hear. Pastor Benjamin said to wait, for the miracle will come, but at the right time. I did not want to wait, but, grumbling to myself, I decided to listen and spend time in the Word. After spending time in the Word, I realised that I had not, contrary to my perception, been resting in God for my PhD programme. The fact that I was so worried and anxious, emailing schools and checking my application status assiduously showed that I still thought I was in control of my situation. I was trying to experience restful increase without resting.

After that GenRev service, I spent time in the Word, read Pastor Prince’s books Destined To Reign and Unmerited Favor again and just enjoyed His presence. I no longer cared that I did not get a place in a school. In fact, I was already looking for other places to apply for the next year and explored other options.

But the Lord had other plans for me. In April 2010, I received an email from the professor at the University of Texas at Austin, informing me that some funds were newly released. He asked if I was still interested in the programme. When I said I was, she went out of her way to arrange online interviews for me with the heads of the department, the director of clinical training, core faculty members and two of her students. She even sent me articles on neuroimaging to read and told me about the research profiles of the interviewers! Praise God for His favour!

After that, I was informed that I was offered a place in the school. There was no way I could have gotten into the school on my own. The acceptance rate for clinical psychology in America is very low. I could not even get into a masters programme in Australia. It was only favour and nothing else that got me in. The offer I received included a teaching assistantship, a fellowship and a waiver of four years of my course fees. I only have to pay US$800 per semester. In addition, I would be given an allowance every year during my course. The Lord not only blessed me with a place in school, but He also ensured that I would not have to go into debt in order to obtain my degree! The Lord really turned this situation around for me and went beyond what I had asked Him for.

Thank you, Pastor Prince and Pastor Benjamin, for your amazing messages. It is an honour to call you my pastors. I fully intend to keep in touch with the church while I am away, attend every possible service when I am in Singapore and grab hold of Pastor Prince's resources. New Creation Church will always be my home church.

Blessed And Experienced A Life Transformed

 

I am from a small town in Staffordshire, England. I was experiencing one tragedy after another in my life. My daughter passed away four days after she was born, and five years later, my wife and two sons left me. That same year, my sister died due to heart failure. I felt like my world had come to an end. I had been a Christian for over 20 years and I kept going to church because I knew if I stopped, I would never go back. I did not know what to do but I felt God telling me to run the race and not give up.

In April 2009, I was retrenched after working for 16 years as a sales manager in a large company. I started working at the age of 15 and at the age of 50, I found no joy in looking for a job. So I talked to God about it. I started shouting and shouting and God just listened. After I had finished shouting, I heard God telling me to run the race and keep my eyes on Him. I thought, “What kind of answer is that? I have bills to pay.”

Then, a friend of mine from Singapore visited me in England and asked if I could help him out in his company in Singapore. It was hard for me to leave my family and my church but I agreed. It was a big step of faith for me to come to Singapore but our God is so good. I made a promise to myself that I would find a church where I would get some good teachings. After a few weeks of visiting several churches, I came to New Creation Church and felt at home. Then, I got Pastor Prince’s book — Unmerited Favor — and I could not put it down.

My life started to change. For the first time in my life, I was seeing God’s Word in a new and exciting way and I wanted more of His Word every day. For many years, I saw myself as a nobody, but Pastor Prince said during one of the Sunday services that God did not die for a nobody. He died for you, a somebody. What a wake-up call that was. I am going to read Unmerited Favor again as I do not want to miss out on anything. I have been telling my family back in England to get hold of this book and be blessed. I just want to give God the glory and for using Pastor Prince to bring such a powerful message through this book. I am now attending a care group in New Creation Church and am enjoying the fellowship and the teachings. I have also made wonderful new friends here at church. Thank you, Pastor Prince, for writing Unmerited Favor
