Pastor Prince, I went to Canada for my Master of Business Administration (MBA) program in 2014. My brother gave me a collection of your sermons, which helped me survive the intensive program and rescued me from a series of panic attacks. By God’s grace, I secured one of the best internship programs in the country even though I had no connections.
After the internship, I received a job at an insurance company. I struggled every day as I did not enjoy it and was underpaid for my qualifications. After a few months, I was relieved of my duties.
Despite my circumstances, I praised God as I knew He would work all things together for good. A week later, the same company offered me another job with a salary that was twice that of my previous salary. I sought the Lord and felt no peace about the offer, so I turned it down. Everyone thought I had lost my mind.
After that, I continued believing that God had something better in store for me. My brother also reminded me about what you had preached before—whenever something doesn’t work out, we can always trust God to provide something better in quality or quantity.
I began applying for several other jobs to no avail. Eventually, I took a leap of faith and decided to stop applying for jobs altogether, and to just trust God to provide a suitable one for me. The Lord also reminded me to rest in and practice His presence despite my circumstances.
Over the next three months, I continued to ask God for big things and even looked up sample job offer letters and salaries that I wanted. I put up hardcopies of these on my wall, and proclaimed and visualized myself having them. I learned how to do this after listening to Pastor Prince’s teaching on seeing by faith.
One day, I received a call from a multinational corporation that I had applied to before. With the Lord as my mouthpiece, I did well in my interviews and landed a position as a project manager for the Atlantic region. My days of being jobless were finally over!
I realized that even if I lose this great job, I know I still have the best thing in this world—Jesus. Through this journey, I have learned to surrender all my needs to Him and simply trust Him to provide for me. I’ve also asked God for a life partner and have no doubt He will do more than what I can ask or imagine (Eph. 3:20).
Thank you, Pastor Prince, for serving millions of people around the world with the message of God’s grace. I’ll continue to share your teachings with others and I hope to meet you one day.
