Praise Report: Delivered from Life of Worldly Lusts and Drugs

I was tormented by a past that saw me molested by my brother and uncle. I went to church, I prayed, and I studied my Bible. Yet, I was still being molested. This made me mad at God and I questioned if He was even real.I became angry and self-centered. I turned to alcohol and drugs, and told myself if God didn’t care then neither did I. This road led to even darker areas as I began living an alternative lifestyle and gave myself to worldly lusts and drugs. Years went by and I went deeper and deeper in to this unhealthy lifestyle.

I was drugged up one day in a bath house when a man just came up to tell me that God is good. That struck a nerve with me. Later when I went to a friend’s house, he happened to be listening to Joseph Prince. I listened to the message and my ears opened and my heart was moved. I was hearing someone tell me that even in all my filthiness, Jesus loves me.

That was the turning point in my life. Joseph said even though I was broken, I am the righteousness of God IN CHRIST. It was not my own righteousness, but Christ’s righteousness given to me. I took hold of that and ran with it. Every day and every night I listened to Joseph Prince. I would go to sleep listening to how much my Lord loves me and I would wake up reminding myself that I am loved and that I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

I no longer walk around defeated and I tell others of the great love that my Father has for us through Christ Jesus. My focus is no longer on me and my failures, but on the perfect work of my Lord Jesus on the cross for me.

I cannot explain how much I am indebted to my brother in Christ, Joseph Prince. He saved me from my previous destructive lifestyle. I am now living a life of victory, prosperity, and joy—all IN CHRIST JESUS. To Him be the honor and glory. Amen!

Thank you, Joseph, for your obedience to the calling of God to preach the gospel of grace. Peace be with you and your family always!
