Set Free from 20–Year Smoking Addiction

 

I have been a Christian since 2008. When I just got born again, I was so in love with Jesus. However, gradually I felt that I was not doing enough for God. I also had a detestable addiction to smoking for 20 years.

Back then, I was serving in the church choir and every time before and after my choir practice, I would hide outside the church to smoke. I felt like a hypocrite. I tried to quit smoking through nicotine patches, medication and my “iron will”. But the more I tried to quit, the more I had the desire to smoke! Gradually, going to church became a duty, and I would skip church in exchange for sleep.

I knew this wasn’t how I felt when I first got born again, so I prayed that God would lead me to fall in love with Him again. Then, a friend invited me to New Creation Church. During worship, I felt God’s presence and love so strongly. And my prayer was answered when I heard Pastor Prince speak — I fell in love with Jesus all over again.

Even though I was already a Christian who had read the Bible, I did not fully understand it until Pastor Prince unveiled God’s truth when he preached, and showed me God’s love from the scriptures.

Going to church became a joy and His Word became a necessity for me like food. Week after week, I grew in the revelation of God’s great love for me. And as encouraged by Pastor Prince in his messages, I would confess that I am the righteousness of God in Christ even when I was smoking.

At first, I felt really stupid and hypocritical but I continued with my confession and asked God to take away all my desire to smoke. Over time, I grew to hate the taste and smell of cigarettes. I would smoke halfway and stop because it tasted funny. God took away all my desire to smoke!

It has been three years now since I stopped smoking. Praise God for truly all glory belongs to Him!

Blessed with A Better–Paying Job

 

On 13 January 2016, I was retrenched from the company I had been working in for almost five years. To be honest, I was so excited as I was already thinking of leaving the company. Since I was retrenched, I received a severance pay which was five months of my salary. Nonetheless, I was aware that the money would eventually run out if I couldn’t find a job in time.

But I was so thankful for our church’s theme of the year which was “Possessing Our Possessions”. This gave me hope to believe the Lord would bring me to a new land (job) that is overflowing with milk and honey.

I started to look for a job online. Two months passed, and there was still no good news. Though there were a few job interviews that came along, nothing materialised.

Disappointments and fears began to set in when my wife told me about the amount of money we had left in our bank account. At that time, we had incurred quite a bit of expenses as we had just purchased our house and bought some furniture.

There were nights when I couldn’t sleep because there were so many things running through my mind, but I am thankful for having a wife who kept reminding me that the Lord is our provider and not me.

To be honest, waiting was very tough. The only thing I could do was to wait for doors to open. It was also a season when I had to strengthen my faith and fill my heart with God’s love, believing that He delights in me and that He is always for me. When feelings of disappointment came, I would remind myself of His goodness by meditating on His Word and confessing it aloud. During this time, Psalm 23 came alive to me.

Finally, when the third month came, I received a job offer! I could tell that it was the hand of Daddy God working for me as I did not possess the skills that my new employers were looking for.

They even gave me a higher position even though the recruitment was for an entry level position. As a result, I got an eight per cent increment from my last drawn salary!

This year is really the year where I possess my possessions! Not only did I become a house owner, I also received a new job! To God be the glory!

Receiving His Grace in The Area of Weakness

 

Pastor Prince has shared in his messages that he used to stutter when he was in his teens, and his classmates would laugh at him. But God uses the area of his weakness to spread the gospel now. Through his testimony, he encouraged us that our disqualification is the very area where God’s favour can flow. (2 Corinthians 12:9—10)

I strongly identify with it. When I was in kindergarten, I used to get zero for my spelling tests all the time. And I did not just get zero, I would repeatedly write my first name, middle name and last name on each line of my exercise book, as my name was the only thing I could spell. My mum was called in to speak with the teacher numerous times, as I could not write anything else other than my name during spelling sessions.

When I got into primary school, I still failed my spelling tests all the time, and I barely passed English during the crucial Primary School Leaving Examinations. But now, I am a PhD holder in Communication Studies, and writing is part of my job.

I believe that it is through God’s grace that my weakness is the very area where His favour has flowed. I thank Lord Jesus Christ for the plentiful supply in my very area of disqualification today. Amen!
