For more than thirty years, I was a member of a church that had legalistic teachings. As a result, I lived in fear, guilt, and condemnation. My marriage was also not going well and after more than twenty-five difficult years, my husband walked out in 2008 and ended all communication with me.
Just before he left me, we had visited Singapore, where I attended a service at New Creation Church with my cousin and heard Pastor Joseph Prince’s message of God’s grace. After that day, I started listening to Pastor Prince’s weekly online sermons.
Initially, it was difficult to unlearn all the teachings I had heard in the past.
But slowly, I began to understand that I did not have to put in any effort to merit blessings from God.
I started claiming that I was the righteousness of God in Christ.
I also overcame my fear about the Holy Communion and started taking it regularly. I started experiencing God’s blessings physically, materially, and spiritually. I found favor in my workplace and I was promoted twice. I always felt surrounded with God’s love and favor.
One night, five years after my husband left me, I asked the Lord whether I should meet a lawyer and work out how to proceed with my marriage. That night, I heard God’s voice and He asked me if I expected the solution to come from Him or my husband.
I immediately told the Lord that I would just wait for Him to sort out things and that I would only look to Him for all my needs. I stopped being stressed about coming up with a solution for my future.
A month from that night, my husband called me—and he has since rejoined the family and God’s love has reunited us.
It has been almost two years since this miracle took place and we can truly say that God makes all things beautiful in His time. Pastor Prince, thank you for all the messages on your website and the daily devotions. My relationship with God has become a joyous one and not one filled with fear.
Life is much better now than it would have been had I tried to work it out on my own.
