How Do You Trust God in Hard Times?

Do you fully surrender your situation to your Heavenly Father, or do you sometimes feel like you can do things without His help?

Let Cyndrell Limpiada’s story inspire you to fully trust in God.

How Do You Trust God in Hard Times?

For the 15 years that Cyndrell had worked abroad, she was able to provide well for her children and parents.

Yet, she was not able to invest in any property because she lived lavishly. She admitted that pride ruled in her heart and that she depended on herself, not on God.

But her world turned upside down when her employer in Dubai closed the business, leaving her jobless. Cyndrell, along with her husband, had to go back to the Philippines without any savings.

Have you had a similar experience too? What did the situation prompt you to do?

For Cyndrell, the crisis led her to go to Singapore and try looking for a job there. However, she faced rejection after rejection, and before she knew it, it was almost time for her to go home.

In the midst of her struggles, Cyndrell chanced upon The 700 Club Asia. During one episode of the show, she heard the hosts prayed about a woman who was unemployed for almost 4 months. They declared that God would open the door and the woman will get the job she desires— whom Cyndrell believed was her.

Do you believe in the power of prayer as well?

Like Cyndrell, trust that God hears your prayers and knows what is in your heart.

Cyndrell claimed what she heard, believing that she will eventually land a job in Singapore. Then, her miracle happened. Two days before her flight back home, she received a call for an interview!

The company immediately hired her as an account executive with a salary that was even higher than what she used to earn in Dubai!

After experiencing God’s faithfulness, Cyndrell committed to giving to Operation Blessing and became a faithful partner of CBN Asia. Blessings started to pour out for her family as she decided to make God her partner in handling her finances. She was able to provide a sari-sari store for her parents and put up her own piggery business.

Do you want to claim God’s promises in your life as well? Trust that God will provide what you need in His perfect time, just as He did with Cyndrell.

More than the material blessings, Cyndrell knows that she received the greatest blessing even the world cannot never give, which is peace from God.

“I can only find real peace in the Lord Jesus. I was transformed by Him and He really used The 700 Club Asia to deepen my faith. He is not deaf. He is really alive. He never fails,” she testified.

Cyndrell decided to make Jesus the King of her heart and partner of her finances. She set aside her pride and fully depended on God.

During hard times, remember that there is a great promise for you, written in Proverbs 3:5-6. It says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

Do You Feel Stuck in the Darkest Moment of Your Life?

When you are at your lowest point, it’s hard to make sense of anything. Right now, you probably feel terrified and helpless. Hopeless. Wondering if you can still get back on your feet.

Truly, there is nothing more difficult than to find yourself stuck in the darkest moment of your life.

Don’t worry. You are not alone.

Ed Embradora knows how you feel. At the young age of 16, Ed found himself in a dark place—drug addiction. It eventually led him to dealing drugs himself, which got him into prison multiple times and separated him from his family.

“In prison, our food was like pig’s food. Sometimes I couldn’t stomach it, but I had to eat it anyway just to survive. I see prison as a place that is cursed, it’s just like hell,” Ed recalled.

Life in prison was tough, but it became even harder for Ed as he was eventually diagnosed with Hypokalemic paralysis. This disease placed an unbearable discomfort on his back and made physical movement very difficult.

Life did not make sense for Ed anymore. He often saw it as meaningless. He even wished for himself to just die so that his hardships may end.

Like Ed, have you ever been pushed to your limit and were on the verge of quitting?

Have you ever questioned where God is during the darkest valleys of your life?

In times like this, be still and know that God will never leave you. He is right beside you.

Ed was devastated, but God soon revealed that He had greater plans for him just as God has great plans for everyone.

God provided opportunities for Ed to hear His Word. Ed encountered God inside the prison and accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior—praying and believing that the Lord can change him.

“Despite my messy life, I believed that Jesus can turn and make it as white as snow,” Ed said. He also fervently hoped that God would heal his body from the disease that plagued him. Thankfully, God did not disappoint.

One night, while watching The 700 Club Asia inside his prison cell, Ed witnessed the hosts praying for people with severe back pain. He responded and claimed the prayer of healing for himself with all his heart.

With just one prayer, Ed felt that the pain in his back was released, and he was able to move around with ease. His strength was renewed, “For those who will believe and trust the Lord, they will receive a miracle!” he exclaimed.

After experiencing God’s miraculous healing, Ed dedicated his life to God and committed to attend Bible study groups to grow in his faith.

He was eventually released from prison and from the chains of his past. With a brand-new life, he continued to follow God and is now reunited and serving the Lord with his family.

From a life that seemed meaningless, he now enjoys a newfound purpose in Jesus Christ. Indeed, when Jesus enters the scene, He changes your life!

You too, can experience God’s transforming grace. If you feel stuck in the darkest moment of your life, you can surrender everything to Jesus so He can shine light into your path. Allow Him to transform you from the inside out.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV)

Help people like Ed know Jesus and His transforming love. If you have the desire to reach out to others through CBN Asia, call 8-737-0-700 or visit cbnasia.org to partner with us today!

A Controversy Made Her Quit, But God Had Greater Plans

Most people think that controversies only affect those who have huge influences– celebrities, public servants, business magnates, and the likes.

Seldom do you hear a teacher’s story whose career was hindered because of it.

Yet, here is Reichelle Cunanan, a 5-year long special education teacher in Singapore, who faced a dispute that pushed her to leave her job.

But the very thing that would supposedly impair her career became a significant turning point in her life.

Reichelle’s story proves that, indeed, God redirects the path of the people He loves, and what others meant to harm you, He would turn it for your good.

At an early age, Reichelle knew what God called her to do. That is, to serve and teach students with special needs.

“I’m so blessed to be in this profession because I know that this is the calling of the Lord for me,” Reichelle said.

It had always been her desire and dream to build a school for children, that’s why she tried her best to excel and teach students with utmost sincerity.

But in 2020, she got herself involved in a controversy she didn’t see coming. Her faith was tested, and her dream was threatened.

“There was a misunderstanding between the school personnel, parents, and me. At that time, they didn’t listen to my side of the story,” she recalled.

If you were in her situation, what would you do?

Would you fight, and prove them wrong? Would you defend yourself?

Reichelle did try to defend herself, but again, no one listened to her.

So, left with no choice, she came home to the Philippines. Without a job, and with a heavy heart and mind filled with questions.

Have you also questioned God why bad things happen to you?

“Why did something so trivial hinder me from pursuing my dreams?”

“Why am I being punished when all I did was follow You?”

“Why me, of all people?”

You’re not the only one who asked those questions. Reichelle did, and so do others who couldn’t understand why God allowed things they didn’t want to happen.

But despite the questions in her head and the depressing emotions she felt, Reichelle chose to pray and praise God instead.

God, being the faithful and wonderful Father that He is, answered in a very unexpected way. Reichelle chanced upon The 700 Club Asia and saw the hosts praying for the audience!

“Lord, would You give each one a willing heart to be healed, to be renewed, to be released from that bitterness and pain,” host Peter Kairuz declared.

She prayed alongside the host and received God’s peace.

Just like that, she experienced the kind of peace that surpasses understanding that the Prince of Peace, Jesus, alone could give!

“The testimonies, stories, and encouragement from The 700 Club Asia helped me. This ministry helps people in their spiritual walk with God,” Reichelle said.

It only took one person praying on the screen, and another receiving that prayer, to shift a situation. This is possible for you, too.

Since then, Reichelle started looking at things differently.

She used her time to share the gospel to her family, relatives, and friends at the height of the pandemic. She also initiated doing online Bible studies for kids!

When the year 2021 came, God granted her long-awaited dream.

Reichelle now has a tutorial center for kids, named ‘Chesed,’ which means, ‘God’s loving kindness.’ The center has more than 30 students, and continuously grew for the past months. Reichelle is also on the mission of providing jobs for teachers who lost theirs when the pandemic happened.

She said, “This is the verse I was holding on to: ‘And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns,’ (Philippians 1:6).”

How about you? Did you experience being pushed to the wall, having no better options to choose from but quit?

May Reichelle’s story give you hope that God’s ways are always greater! He sometimes shows up the least you expect Him, but in the way you need Him to be.

Believe that this can happen to your family, friends, and loved ones, too.

Help us in the mission to help more people like Reichelle. Together with CBN Asia Family of Ministries, you can be an instrument to change people’s lives and make their dreams come true. Partner with us!

My Business Went Bankrupt, How Do I Start Over?

Maybe, you are in a situation right now where you feel hopeless.

You feel restless.

You feel desperate.

You ask, “God, why is this happening to me?”

“Do You really see what I’m going through?”

“Do You really care about me?”

Maricris Sarmiento knows how you feel. She experienced it, too — desperate for God to deliver her from her troubles.

Like many people, her faith was tested during the height of the pandemic.

“We were in an agricultural business at that time. Our pigs got infected with Swine Influenza Virus. They all died because of the virus. As a result, our business went bankrupt,” Maricris recalled.

Despite of what happened to her, Maricris did not let her situation stop her from pursuing God’s best plan for her life. With a heart to help people and a belief that giving to the work of the Lord is a privilege, Maricris continues to donate to CBN Asia.

“Our money belongs to the Lord. So, He will be the one who will direct us on where we will put our money,” she said.

With hope in her heart, Maricris started a new online distribution business—an answered prayer and a declaration of God’s purpose for her life.

“God’s ways are different. Sometimes, a setback can be a setup for something bigger. God will reveal His power to us when we are at our lowest point. I am confident that He will take care of my future,” she shared.

Like Maricris, do you trust the Lord with your future? Do you believe that He can help you start over?

Indeed, God is faithful to His promises­! He answered Maricris’ prayer — He blessed her new business and gave her a long-awaited financial breakthrough.

“It started from small. But right now, with the help of my business partners, our business is growing. All by God’s grace,” she said.

Maricris is living proof that God is greater than the struggles we face. If you lost your business or you are struggling with your finances, may her story remind you that God is willing to help you overcome.

“My faith grew stronger. What seems to be impossible is possible with the Lord,” Maricris ended.

God sees what you are going through. He cares for you so much.

When life feels hopeless and breakthroughs seem so far away, run to God’s presence so He can meet your every need.

Are You Struggling Financially?

Do you feel like your income is not enough for your family’s needs? Do you feel like the piling expenses are overwhelming you?

If so, then you might relate with Evelyn Caballo, who reached a point of letting go of important things just to survive.

Evelyn and her husband were both working in a hotel before the pandemic. Just like other businesses and companies, the hospitality industry was greatly affected by the health crisis. Vacations and travels were minimized and restricted to appease the spread of the virus.

This caused joblessness to hotel workers, including Evelyn.

The couple have 3 kids to support, who are all studying and have tuition fees to pay.

Aside from their family’s day to day expenses, their daughter Angela needs special care and attention. Consistent funding is necessary for Angela’s speech therapy, and as a parent who is currently unemployed, paying for all these needs is almost impossible for Evelyn.

As painful as it is for the couple, they had to cut off some important expenses, including Angela’s speech therapy.

Have you ever been in this kind of situation before? How did you overcome?

For Evelyn, the best thing she could do at such time was to seek God’s guidance.

Four years ago when Evelyn started watching The 700 Club Asia, she would always join the hosts as they prayed. This is the biggest help she got from the show — their prayer and encouraging words.

“In the middle of our difficult situations, their prayers are so heartfelt. Even when I am only watching them from a screen, it feels as though I am with them physically. They are my partners in prayer,” Evelyn said.

From then on, she committed to gather her family to kneel in prayer as they face challenges, especially when they are struggling financially. Indeed, God did not abandon them in their time of need.

Even when the salary was reduced, the company of Evelyn’s husband continued to provide groceries and food for their family. They also got consistent help from the government.

Their financial struggle did not hinder Evelyn to prioritize God by donating to Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm.

She said, “Every time that we have a need, it’s an opportunity to plant a seed.”

And after a few months of waiting, her husband fully got his job back.

This made Evelyn realize that God’s word planted in her heart gave her strength. That even in the pandemic, she continued to hold on to the truth that the Lord can bless and make someone prosper.

They were able to continue funding their kid’s studies and enrolled Angela back to her speech therapy.

“I want to tell Jesus that I love Him, and I am grateful for all that He has done,” Evelyn said.

If you are inspired and touched by Evelyn’s story and you want to extend help to others through CBN Asia, you are welcome to partner with us! Call 8-737-0-700 or visit cbnasia.org to know more about the ministry.

How Can I Break Free from the Cycle of Pain?

Emotionally damaged people tend to inflict pain on the people around them.

Sometimes, it is inevitable to experience pain, sorrow, sufferings, and conflicts.

Since we are living in a broken world, everyone’s vulnerable from all kinds of hurt, unhealthy patterns, and toxic relationships.

And that reality hit Sathy Arancis when she chose to work as a domestic helper in Hong Kong despite finishing a bachelor’s degree in nursing in the Philippines.

“As a domestic helper, I was treated like a slave,” Sathy painfully recalled her bitter experience with her employer.

“Though there’s no physical abuse, there’s emotional abuse. My employer always belittles me, insults me, and tells me, ‘You told me you finished college, but you know nothing,’” she shared.

Can you relate to Sathy’s pain?

You have not experienced being beaten, kicked, punched, or hit, yet you felt so hurt and harmed?

There was no physical force, but you still felt so abused and deeply injured?

If yes, know that your pain is valid. Acknowledge how you feel and the way you respond to that hurtful situation. Remember, pain is more than just a physical sensation.

In Proverbs 18:21, God’s Word reminds us that our tongue, not our hands nor feet, can bring death or life. It means our words have power to either heal or kill.

Whenever we choose hurtful and harsh words, we are like shooting arrows with poison to the people we are talking to and dealing with.

As the adage says, “Hurt people hurt people,” the cycle of pain continues when we operate on our own will and emotions.

This is what happened when Sathy tried to endure and hide her pain.

She looked for people and activities that would help her forget her agony.

But her effort to escape her pain only led her to do things that would harm herself.

She learned to go to the club and do vices, gave in to impulsive shopping, disregarded her curfew, and even disrespected her employer.

Like Sathy, was your effort to escape your distress only led you to the wrong path? You thought you would be able to heal, forget, and be fine. But it only made you feel worse and devastated?

Take heart! Your situation is not hopeless, and so are you.

Change is coming to you, too. Just as how God encountered Sathy when she was totally drunk and ashamed of what she has become. Help is on the way for you!

That night when Sathy knew she deserved to be scolded, her employer shown great concern towards her.

Convicted by the kindness of her employer, God led her to The 700 Club Asia Facebook page.

“When I opened The 700 Club Asia’s page, I thought it was about night clubs. But then, I realized it features different testimony of people,” Sathy said. “I was delighted and touched. And I wondered if it was real,” she added.

Encouraged by the testimonies she watched, her curiosity about living a transformed life grew deeper and wider.

As she sought God’s way, the Lord started moving in her life.

Today, Sathy is happily married while serving God with her husband, and working as a nurse in Canada.

“People share who they were before and how the Lord changed them. They teach you how to pray and how to confess your sins to God. The Lord really guided me every step of the way,” Sathy gratefully shared how she started journeying with the Lord through watching The 700 Club Asia.

Are you also longing for a change in your life?

Do want to be set free from the cycle of pain, toxic patterns, and unhealthy lifestyle?

By the grace and mercy of God, you will experience hope, healing, and restoration, and transformation.

God is faithful and will grant the desires of your heart as you delight yourself in Him.

Jesus has carried all your sins in His body when He died on the cross. He died that you might die to sin and live a life that is pleasing to your heavenly Father. Because of Jesus’ wounds, healing is available for you (1 Peter 2:24).

He is your Wounded Healer. He knows, understands, and feels your pain. And He is there to heal, restore, and renew.

Would you like to experience a new life that is free from the hurt, guilt and shame caused by sin?

Come to Jesus! He is there waiting for you. He longs for you to give you a life that is abundant, victorious, and full of joy.

Is God prompting you to support us in inspiring people to live a transformed life? It’s our joy to welcome you as our partner in the ministry.

May the Lord comfort you, heal you, and save you.

God bless you!

Are You a Breadwinner in Your Family?

Are you often worried about your family’s finances?

If so, then perhaps you would relate to Jho Valera.

Like you, Jho felt all the worries when she lost her job for 4 years because of bankruptcy. She was her family’s breadwinner. Losing her job meant she could not provide for her loved ones anymore. Because of this, she became depressed and started having anxiety attacks.

“I couldn’t sleep. I had no peace of mind. I was wondering where I could borrow some money,” she shared.

 

She tried selling barbeque but it wasn’t enough to feed her family. She even had to pawn her cellphone so she could have money.

Can you relate to Jho’s struggle?

Do you also feel emotionally and financially drained?

One night, after selling barbecue, Jho chanced upon The 700 Club Asia on television. Through the show, she gained the courage to face her problems. She remembered that God is with her no matter her situation.

“The host shared that ‘God can carry you. God can help you. Trust in God,’” Jho recalled.

She also saw how Operation Blessing helps our needy kababayans. This inspired her to give. With just Php 500 left in her wallet, she gave half to the ministry.

“They show where the donations go and how it helps other people,” she shared

Little did she know that her act of faith would open the door of blessings in her life.

Soon after, she received Php 500 from a friend who owed her. She also received a face painting gig which paved the way for her to own an event design business.

Now, she’s managing a physical therapy clinic which allows her to travel abroad and be a blessing to her family.

May Jho’s story remind you that we can never outgive God. In His Word it says,

“Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap.” (Luke 6:38 NLT)

Maybe today you are like Jho and you’re also worried about your finances. May you remember that you have a living Hope and that is Jesus. He is your Provider, Comforter, and ever-present help in times of need.

Do you feel hopeless, scared, and worried about tomorrow? The CBN Asia Prayer Center is here 24/7 to pray for you.

Are You Praying for Healing?

Have you ever been in a situation where someone you love desperately needs healing? You don’t have money, there is no present help, and you’re hurt to see your loved one suffering.

If you are experiencing this, you should hear the story of Nestor Quilat, who had both his kids rushed to the hospital.

No doubt that a parent’s love for their children is beyond measure. Many parents say that they would do anything to give their kids a good and healthy life. So, you could imagine how hard it was for Nestor to see his children suffering.

When both of his kids’ temperature spiked up, Nestor hurriedly brought them to the hospital, and found out that Deborah has a blood clot that needs to be removed. Meanwhile, Job’s fever reached 43 degrees hot. They both have dengue.

This could have been easier if they only had the money to buy all the medications needed, but at that time, they only had Php 1,000 to spend. Nestor was helpless, but his faith was strong.

As the hospital bills increased and the cost of medicine became almost unreachable, Nestor held on to God more than ever before. Even in a comfort room, he kneeled and prayed to God even harder.

“Lord, You are the one who gave me my children. I will serve you, I will bring my family to serve you if you let my children live,” he said in his prayers.

Whether in the hospital or at home, Nestor prayed unceasingly. He remembered watching The 700 Club Asia even before his kids got sick. He would often join the hosts in their prayers for healing.

Strongly believing in the power of prayers, Nestor did not hesitate to ask his pastor to pray for Deborah and Job. After that, he had a hope that God would hear his cries.

He was not wrong.

A few days passed and the prayers for his kids were heard. When he got to the hospital, the doctor confirmed that Deborah’s blood clot was gone, and Job is now doing better.

The blessings did not end there. A close friend of Nestor came and asked about what happened to his children. Just as Nestor was settling the money concerns before leaving the hospital, he found out that the bills had already been paid.

After this miracle, just as promised, Nestor taught his kids how to read the Bible and pray. At this moment, his family is serving God by ministering to the street children.

“The Word of God changed our lives and gave us direction,” he said.

Are you praying for healing right now?

The Lord is your great doctor. There is nothing more powerful than His healing hands.

In desperate times, cling to Him more and pray. Ask Him for help.

Ask for His intervention so He can show you His healing power.

“And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up.” (James 5:15 ESV)

Do you have any concerns that we can pray for?

The CBN Asia Prayer Center is always available to pray with you. Reach us at 8-737-0-700.

What Do You Do When You Don’t Know What to Do?

Maybe you are faced with a major problem. Maybe you have a big decision to make. Maybe you are questioning God why you have to suffer this way.

Not only do you not know how you got into this situation, but you don’t know how to get out of it either.

Now you’re asking yourself, what do you do when you don’t know what to do?

Rebecca Solis could relate to that helpless feeling.

Rebecca’s life turned upside down when her husband died in 2016. As a widow who had zero experience in managing a direct selling business, she did not know what to do.

Although it pained her to see how the fruits of her husband’s labor started to crumble, she had to let go of it. She had to close down the business.

Just when she thought it’s their lowest point, life delivered another blow.

One month after her husband died, her son got involved in a car accident.

Grief. Financial lack. Growing bank debts. The widow tried to stay strong amid all the grief and troubles. She tried to sell their house so their family can survive. But when she did not see any hope, she eventually reached breaking point.

She desperately cried to God.

“I was so desperate. Many people inquired, but no one bought our property. So I prayed, ‘Lord, I need to sell this house. Please reach out to people who will prosper me with this property. I surrender. You are in control,” Rebecca recalled.

What about you, what do you do when you don’t know what to do?

Where do you find comfort?

Little did Rebecca know, God will comfort her weary heart through a show.

“I watched The 700 Club Asia and saw the hosts praying, ‘God is opening doors that have been closed for your life for so long. I am commanding the blessing to come to you! Receive it now.’

Startled yet amazed by what she heard, Rebecca exclaimed, “That’s me! God was talking to me. I claimed that prayer because I knew it was for me!”

From being clueless and helpless about not knowing what to do, Rebecca now knows which path to take. That is to surrender everything to Jesus Christ and have faith that He will make a way.

God surprised Rebecca. Just two months after that prayer, their property was sold—allowing them to settle all their debts and start anew. Until now, Rebecca is in awe of how God opened doors of opportunities for their family.

“All our debts were settled because of my faith in God. He is faithful. Nothing and no one can stop Him from giving what He wants for us. That’s how much He loves us,” Rebecca said.

After witnessing how the miraculous hand of God worked in her life, Rebecca’s faith grew stronger than ever.

She couldn’t help but praise God in all that she does. She started serving God’s ministry as a discipleship leader—passionately sharing God’s saving love to others and blessing those who are in need.

“Millions worth of money cannot buy the peace and joy that I experience now. I trust the Lord fully and I know He is with me even though my husband passed away,” she shared.

If you’re in a challenging, hopeless, or uncertain situation right now, Rebecca has a good reminder for you.

“We count our blessings every day. Also, watching The 700 Club Asia is a huge part of my spiritual journey. God introduced me to that show to comfort me. I learned that no one can help us better than Jesus,” Rebecca ended.

One thing is clear: Rebecca did not know what to do. Thankfully, she ran to God and asked for His help.

When you don’t know what to do, ask God.

Find comfort in the truth that you can always run to Jesus and ask for His help. Ask for His divine protection to rescue and cover you. Ask His miraculous hand to bless you. Ask His loving heart to comfort you.

Ask, and expect for answers. Have faith that your God is about to open doors for you. Believe that you will be comforted and that He will lead you to the right path.

Be ready to receive your blessing.

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7 NKJV)

Do You Find It Difficult to Give?

When it seems that we don’t have enough for ourselves, we might find it challenging to give to God. But Joy’s story proves that if we remain faithful to God, He will take care of us and provide all our needs.

Joy Adler fell victim to financial fraud and learned that she owed the bank $14,000, which totaled to around 720,000 Philippine pesos. Someone had stolen her personal information and used her credit card. Unable to pay her debt, Joy and her husband, Don, decided to file for bankruptcy.

Joy had worked two jobs, but she still does not earn enough for their needs.

Are you in a similar situation right now?

Don’t lose hope. Trust in God’s plan for your life! He sees you and He will take care of you, as He did with Joy.

While staying with her in-laws, Joy had the opportunity to go to church and, eventually, accept Christ as her personal Lord and Savior. She also learned about The 700 Club, which she now considers as her second church.

Joy discovered the importance of tithing as well. So despite having very limited resources and sometimes even relying on food stamps, Joy and her husband gave to God’s ministry as much as possible.

Things were getting better as her in-laws helped them move to a new apartment. However, another problem came when their car broke down.

Joy admitted that she was not regularly giving to God at that time. But God spoke to her, saying that she had to surrender everything to Him.

What is God telling you right now? Are you willing to obey and trust in Him?

As for Joy, she listened to God and decided to give faithfully. It was when they prioritized God that they began to rise above their situation.

Don, her husband, got a new job which pays a lot better than his former job, and their family got the opportunity to move to Michigan.

Despite Don’s car accident which resulted in 4 months of absence from work, they continued giving to God. “I’m still giving my tithes faithfully. That’s why I’m not worried about what’s going to happen because God’s Words are true. I hold on to His promises,” she said.

She continued watching The 700 Club and chanced upon a story of a single mother who could not provide for her two kids. It broke her heart, so she called and partnered with The 700 Club.

As they continued to give to God faithfully, God also blessed them abundantly. They were able to pay their bills, buy a new car, and move to a bigger house.

“Give and trust the Lord. He will provide. Whatever happens, He will take care of you,” she encouraged.

You can experience God’s boundless blessings too. Fully surrender your life to God and trust Him completely. He blesses those who are faithful to Him.

2 Corinthians 9:7 says, “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

Are you waiting for a financial breakthrough from God as well? Believe that God can provide for you and your family.

Our prayer counselors at the CBN Asia Prayer Center are always available to listen and pray for you. You can reach us at 8-737-0-700.
