Open Doors Of Favour During His Job Pursuit

 

On 26 October 2015, I was given a golden handshake by my previous employer. At that time, I was the company’s general manager.

To be honest, I felt relieved in a certain way and trusted God that something better was waiting for me. I felt prompted to start a consulting firm and tap into a specific skill I had. I also took on photography assignments to earn some income on the side, and it was amazing to see how Abba Father opened doors for me during this period.

That year, I was able to draw income from my consulting firm, photography assignments and from my role as an adjunct lecturer. I had tried to apply to teach in various universities before but never got an interview. But during this period, God opened doors for me to lecture in two universities.

However, my heart’s desire was to return to the workforce full-time. All in all, I applied for thousands of jobs and went for a couple of interviews, but nothing materialised. Even potential roles promised by a few of my friends fell through.

Over time, I was concerned that I would remain jobless. Although I was at rest in my heart and spirit, I felt that I could do more. Hence, I decided to take up a taxi licence and started driving in June 2016.

In the first two weeks of driving, I had to work for around 14 to16 hours a day. I became physically tired and began putting my hopes in some of the potential jobs which I felt I could stand a high chance.

While having lunch one day, I received disappointing phone calls informing me that the three potential jobs I had put my hopes on were closed doors. I felt really lost and began to tear up. I texted my wife who then called to encourage me. Her words lifted me up and pointed me back to Jesus.

It was then that I realised that I had been focusing on my situation and looking to men instead of looking to Jesus. Though I would take the time to seek the Lord, partake of the Holy Communion, speak in tongues and read Pastor Prince’s daily devotional and meditate on God’s Word, somehow along the way, I became restless and allowed my physical tiredness to overwhelm me.

I decided to take a week’s break and look for a relief driver to cover me in the day. I also made sure that I enjoyed myself and took each day as it came — trusting Abba Father for His provision.

Compared to most taxi drivers, my earnings were considered high. I thank God for His favour and protection. Even though no job opportunity arose, I kept reminding myself of Daddy God’s love for me believing that I could not fail in life because I am a child of the Most High God.

During this time, Daddy God kept pointing me to Genesis 39:2 that talked about Joseph being a successful man even though he was a slave because the Lord was with him. It also reminded me to be restful and that I am a successful man as along as God is with me. I am also thankful for my fellow ministry servers who encouraged me. Their love and fellowship had made my 2016 a memorable year.

Then on 1 September 2016, I drove to a hotel to queue for passengers. When I arrived, there were about 10 taxis in the queue. Deciding not to waste time waiting, I made a U-turn for the exit.

Just then, I got a booking request from the same hotel, and I made a bid for it. After winning the bid, I made my way in again to pick up the passenger. Interestingly, those taxis in the queue didn’t win the bid, and thankfully, the guest did not walk out of the main lobby. Otherwise, he would realise there was no need to book a taxi.

I picked up the passenger who is an American, and we chatted during the journey. He happened to work in a multinational corporation in the aerospace industry. It was his first time in Singapore and the last day before he flew home.

During the ride, I asked him if there was any job opportunity in his company and he asked me to email him my résumé. I did it right away after I alighted him at his destination. Thereafter, I didn’t think much of it and carried on with my daily routine.

Incredibly, he kept emailing me updates of my job application. Eventually, the head office in the United States (US) approved to increase one headcount in his department.

In mid-October, he flew back to Singapore to set up an interview with the Singapore management. He even took the time to have dinner with me to prepare me for the interview. When I asked him how many candidates were vying for this role, he simply replied with a big smile and said, “You are THE candidate.”

The interview went well, and I got the job. But it took another two and a half months before the letter of appointment was offered because this was the first time this role is being filled by a foreigner outside the US, and they had a lot of paperwork to do!

That was truly a lot of favour from a person whom I had met for only 25 minutes in a taxi ride. Moreover, the role is a perfect fit for all my industry skills and experiences. Only Daddy God can create such an opportunity, and through a way that everyone knows that it can only be Him so He takes all the glory.

Before I end this testimony, I just want to open up a bit about myself. I have a doctorate in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, and a Master’s degree in Business Administration. I also hold five international patents by the age of 32. However, all these achievements are useless without Jesus in my life because I can only do all things through Him. I would like to give all glory to Jesus! And thank you, Pastor Prince, and New Creation Church, for teaching the gospel!

Life Preserved With A Speedy Recovery

 

When I was in my teens, I was bullied in school, and this caused me to suffer from depression for more than 10 years. Even though I grew up in a Christian school, I lived life burdened with the weight of condemnation as my family members were not believers.

This went on until I joined my current company where I met bosses whom I look up to. They introduced me to New Creation Church in September 2016, and I believed it was Jesus who had directed my path there.

At midnight on 25 January 2017, I met with a traffic accident while on my way home. My colleague had dropped me off, and as I was crossing the road, I was suddenly hit by a cab. I went up the cab’s bonnet and was flung at least half a metre away. I fell with my laptop in my right arm.

I was shocked and couldn't move. I tried to drag myself to the middle of the road where the barricade was to avoid the oncoming vehicles from the other side of the road.

Thankfully, the cars did not roll over my leg, and I was not unconscious! My belongings were also only slightly damaged.

To cut the story short, I was sent to the hospital after a good 20 minutes.

I contacted my bosses and they prayed for my healing. I also kept laying hands on my thigh and confessing that by Jesus’ stripes, I am healed and that I am covered by His precious blood.

I was also encouraged by a healing testimony screened in church on the Sunday before my accident.

That night, I left the hospital with only some scabs and bruises, and limped home without having to use a wheelchair. It was hard to believe that I had gotten into a traffic accident.

Two weeks later, I was completely healed. I did not have to take additional medication, and did not suffer any bone fractures! I believe this was the work of Jesus and a result of His healing power.

I would like to thank my bosses and most importantly, my Lord Jesus and my Abba Father who heard my prayers and saved my life!

Possessing His Possessions In The Year 2016

 

“Possessing Our Possessions” is our church’s theme for the year 2016 and this is based on the Old Testament story on how God delivered His people into the Promised Land after 40 years in the wilderness.

I was looking forward to what my Promised Land would be. But as time passed, it seemed as though I had spent most of my 2016 in the wilderness rather than the Promised Land.

Earlier this year, a family member went through a difficult time and I took time to help her through it. I also performed poorly in my sales as I tried to protect my client's interests by advising them not to take unnecessary risks in the months leading up to Brexit.

Despite being aware of my challenges, my apathetic bosses placed me on performance management measures and I was threatened with termination.

Rather than be terminated, I thought I could leave the company and look for a new job. However, the job market was difficult as news of private bank laying off their bankers shook the industry.

Throughout this difficult period, God repeatedly spoke to me through Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

I believed in Him and tried to keep my peace and focus on my life and family, especially my supportive wife and lovely daughter, Hannah who was growing up so fast.

God is good and faithful. First, He delivered some big ticket deals that helped me keep my job. Then in November, He delivered me out from this wilderness by opening the door to a new job that I had always dreamt of. He really knows the desires of my heart.

The amazing thing was the job market continued to be challenging and the role was placed by another brother in Christ, a headhunter based in Malaysia and whom I have yet to meet in person.

Finally, I am really excited to share that God has blessed us with another child. We had been praying for a sibling to accompany Hannah for the longest time. God's timing is perfect. This news came on the same week that I had resigned from my old job. If my wife were to be pregnant anytime earlier, s she would have to deal with morning sickness and worry about my job at the same time.

No matter how meticulous and thorough our planning, we can never outplan God. His plan is perfect and delivered at the perfect timing.

All glory and honour be to Him.
