God Is Able To Provide A Way Out

God Is Able To Provide A Way Out



“Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.”


Psalm 71 :20



TrulyGod is the true restorer of our lives.No matter how much great troubles we have engaged ourselves in this life, the moment we call upon the Lord and trust him, we will find deliverance.Troubles are sure to come to our lives . They are inevitable for we are living in an imperfect and wicked world. There are many people who will come to our lives and bring troubles. But we should be firm on holding onto our faith in the Lord. We should completely rest our confidence upon Him. King David’s life is a life full of troubles, but he always find great deliverance for he firmly put his trust and confidence upon the Lord.


In this hub I want to share with you the testimony of my dear brother in the Lord who had been sunk into a very great mess in his life.My dear brother in the Lord whose name is Patrick Teng is a forty-nine year old bachelor from Singapore. He is a bass guitarist of the Praise and Worship Team of a certain church in Singapore. Patrick got into a big trouble in his life more than five years ago. He was lured into an investment scheme that promises big returns for the money invested.Patrick got so much attracted with the investment package that he was driven to get more money from his credit cards to fund additional investments.His total debt from his credit cards amounted to more than 30,000 Singaporean dollars or more than 25,000 US dollars or more than one million pesos.


Months, years pass by the promise of big returns from his investments did not materialize.The people who got his money run away from their financial responsibilities. Patrick was by this time deeply sunk into debt. Patrick became so frustrated and almost lost his hope and confidence in life. There were times he was thinking of taking his own life.I told Patrick at that time, never to lose hope, to put his trust and confidence in the Lord completely and I committed myself to pray regularly forhis release from debt. I went with him in this journey for years.


God is alive and He heard from heaven our prayers. God made a way. He provided a tenant for Patrick’s extra room in his flat. Patrick was able to get advance payments from his tenant and used these advance payments to close all his bank debts. His mother’s friend also lend him a money without interest. Now, his credit card debt is only about 400 SGD. From more than 30,000 SGD down to only 400 SGD . Is it not amazing ? God is indeed awesome. He provided a way out for Patrick to be delivered from the great trouble in his life.It was about last year August 23 when Patrick received a vision from the Lord. In this vision Patrick saw the Lord Jesus paying all his debts from the banks.


Today Patrick is almost out of debt with a regular job in a stable firm. God bless him also with additional parttime job as guitar instructor. If God did this for Patrick, He can do it also for you. Just put your solid hope and confidence upon the Lord. The Lord is a gracious and merciful God and he is always willing to provide a way for us out of the many great troubles of this earthly life.

Thank you Maria Cristina for this beautiful true story of God’s faithfulness to Patrick. You were an important part in God making a way through your prayers. God is so good! I could add many stories of how God made a way for me, but I’d not distract from your beautiful testimony of God’s watch care over His own. May God continue to bless Patrick and you as you share beautiful uplifting words for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Vote up and beautiful

The first lines are really inspirational and truth full.

that is how god has created this world to make it balance.

He gives problem to only those who are capable of handling it and making him much more stronger.

And those he doesn't need in this earth he removes them vastly.

I dont know whether you had read my hub on "mystery of universe" or not.But I had asked the first query on "who is he and where is he who has created this universe?

I will be eager to hear your comment on that and other two hubs to bounce back from the failures through which god teaches us.

I am following you with pleasure.

a topic close to my heart

I had voted up and beautiful

Ate Cristina: God is the greatest problem solver. No matter the problem or situation, God sees the path clearly and provides the necessary detours to put us back on path and as he guides us he heals and teaches.

Yes, indeed, God is able to provide a way out. Ways can still be made out of no-ways if we believe. It is no secret what God can do in us and through us if we only believe.

Thank you for sharing this message of hope and encouragement Cristina. It is life affirming and strengthening to the spirit.

Love, peace and joy in Him,

Forever His

This has been a great hub cristina, it sure does show the POWER that our Lord has for each of us when we humbley go to Him. yes King David knew each time when he sinned against God but each time he would go to God and ask for forgiveness and thru the grace of God he was forgiven, yes when we get ourselves into trouble and go to God asking to be forgiven but we need to ask from the heart and believe and not to doublt then we will receive the blessings from God.

this is a great story thanks for sharing.

God loves all

This was a great hub with lots of encouragement. I went through a similar time in my life in which I couldn't see a way out of the mess I was in. I hadn't tithed in years, and it felt like the money I was bringing in was simply not enough. I eventually heard a message on giving which described God's faithfulness to us when we give back to further his kingdom. I actually trusted God to deliver and started giving back to Him even though the money I had wasn't going far enough. Slowly, things began to happen. Money would show up out of the blue (reimbursements, bonuses, a couple financial gifts from my wife's mother, etc.). A friend of my wife's introduced us to the magic of hardcore couponing. We put our future first, deciding to make hard decisions about expenses we could cut loose. We committed to stay completely out of new debt. We pay cash for everything. It's amazing how much farther the money goes when companies aren't taking interest off the top.

Hi Raymond glad to hear from you. Thank you for taking time to read this hub.Your visit and comments are much appreciated.Yes God is alive and He answers prayers. We just to have to humble ourselves before Him just like KIng David. King David remained to be the most humble king of Israel because he is completely dependent upon God. King David has also many weaknesses as a human being but one thing I like about him is that his hope and confidence in living is in the Lord. WE are dependent upon God's mercy every moment of our lives. Blessings to you and best regards.

I wish to thank God for Cristina for walking through this journey of debt, and dartkness, for past 5 years. It had been a journey of pain and repentance and building the inner man to live a life for God, to see through life's real priorities. Indeed, not a hair that drops from your head that God doesn't know. It doesn't matter whether you could feel Him or not, but He is there. He show His love and deliverance through actions, stages by stages, as faithful as ever, even though we are sometimes unfaithful, He cannot lie when He said He is faithful, that's the wonderful nature of our God.

No matter what perils and storms you are going through, please, hang on, to whatever little faith you have, because that little faith that remains, is all you have to turn things around through divine intervention:

Please Pass It On the good news of God:

It only takes a spark to get a fire going,

And soon all those around can warm up in its glowing;

That's how it is with God's Love,

Once you've experienced it,

Your spread the love to everyone

You want to pass it on.

What a wonderous time is spring,

When all the tress are budding

The birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming;

That's how it is with God's love,

Once you've experienced it.

You want to sing, it's fresh like spring,

You want to pass it on.

I wish for you my friend

This happiness that I've found;

You can depend on God

It matters not where you're bound,

I'll shout it from the mountain top - PRAISE GOD!

I want the world to know

The Lord of love has come to me

I want to pass it on.

Hi DeBorrah K. Ogans it is very encouraging to read your comment for this hub. Thank you for gracing and appreciating this hub. Your visit is always appreciated. Yes the Book of Psalms indeed is a great book in the Bible. Most of these Psalms were written by King David who he himself has a firsthand experience of God's faithfulness and mercy in his life amidst the great troubles that visited his life. I will always love the Book of Psalm. Patrick's testimony is a living proof of God's providential care for His people. Remain blessed always. Best regards.

Hi Patrick I am blessed as I read your comment for this hub. Truly God is awesome. He is ever faithful even we are not that faithful at all times . His uncoditional love for us is never diminished by our faillures and weaknesses. He does not change. He is very unlike us who are easily provoked by men's arrogance and hypocrisy. Our friend's failures to respond to our gestures of love annoy us and diminish our care for them. Truly we are very far from the character of God. God's providential care for you indeed is awesome even though you have many failures and weaknesses. Truly no one could ever love us as God loves us. God's love is the one thing that makes life on earth beautiful inspite all the troubles it bring to us. You may experience all the best things in this world but without experiencing the love of God you still miss the real essence of living and your life will remain incomplete without experiencing God's marvelous love. God's love is indeed the greatest gift of life. God's richest blessings be with you today and always Patrick. May you continue to live in the center of His will. Best regards.
