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.
