Do You Trust God with Your Finances?

It’s easy to trust God when things are going well. But what do you do when you’re financially broke?

Breadwinner Mary Jane Estiller learned what it means to trust God when she struggled with her finances.

Like you, Mary Jane wondered how she can support her family with her meager income. No matter how hard she worked in the salon, the pay was never enough to cover for their family’s expenses. She worried even more when her father got sick.

“It was a very difficult time. I only had a small income, but my responsibility was huge,” Mary Jane recalled.

There were several times when she was left with no more money in her pockets and the only thing that she had was her faith in God.

Can you relate to Mary Jane’s situation?

Have you also experienced running out of cash, yet you still hope in God?

Like Mary Jane, your season of lack is a time where God’s provision is magnified. As she put her trust in God, resources began to pour in.

“I received financial support from my sister and brother-in-law from abroad. I also received tips from my clients at work,” she shared.

Her faith strengthened even more when one of her family members—who is a beneficiary of Operation Blessing—encouraged her to give to CBN Asia.

Apart from this motivation, God’s Word also inspired Mary Jane to support the ministry, “The Bible verse that spoke to my heart was Luke 6:38: ‘Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.’”

It comforted her weary heart that she can always put her trust in God who has the power to supply everything that is lacking in her life.

Mary Jane trusted God with her finances, and true enough, He answered her prayers.

Her father came to know Jesus as his Lord and Savior and got healed from his sickness. Even though her father passed away after some time, Mary Jane was thankful that he had a personal relationship with God.

God’s provision did not stop there. Mary Jane got a new work assignment and would always receive additional incentives after reaching their monthly quota. She was also offered a higher pay which helped her get back on her feet!

Moreover, she received another provision; her sister supported her financially when she opened a small eatery—a blessing she never dreamed of, but she received because of God’s faithfulness.

“God fulfilled his promise that He will bless us,” Mary Jane said, who now juggles managing their Tapsilogan business and working as a freelance financial advisor.

Life is full of ups and downs but as Mary Jane continues to put her trust in God, God continues to take care of her and her household.

Do you still have a hard time trusting God with your finances?

Take heart and allow God to provide in ways you never even dreamed of. If you are ready to surrender to God, Mary Jane has an encouragement for you.

“If you don’t trust God in handling your finances, you tend to find a solution on your own like getting a loan without thinking it over. But when you fully trust God with your financial problems, you will kneel before Him in prayer and ask Him to provide for your needs,” Mary Jane ended.

Are You Praying for Provision?

Adelina Carolino has the same prayer.

After 28 long years of working as a therapist in Kuwait, 60-year-old Adelina was forced to come home to the Philippines when the Kuwaiti government did not renew her work permit.

“Losing my job made me sad. That was my only source of income,” Adelina lamented.

It’s easy to panic and get frustrated when financial challenges come our way. Though losing a job could make anyone down and blue, Adelina chose to look at the brighter side. She prayed and trusted that God would provide for her retirement.

With her hard-earned savings, Adelina flew back to the Philippines and opened two beauty salons. Her business was booming at first—until her income dwindled down. She had to close her beauty salons. Once again, she was left wondering how to make ends meet.

Then something surprising happened.

Instead letting her financial challenges beat her down, Adelina longed to give. Her heart desired to bless those who are in need, even though she, too, was in need.

Adelina looked for a way to help her kababayans and found Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, as a good soil to plant her blessings to.

“Whenever I watch The 700 Club Asia, I am changed. All the stories speak to me, especially how Operation Blessing helps people in need. So I prayed, ‘Lord, I want to be part of what Operation Blessing is doing,’” Adelina recalled.

She prayed, and prayed, and did not hesitate to give Php 10,000 to the ministry. She then spoke a simple prayer for someone to rent her small commercial space and believed that God will provide.

Like Adelina, have you also desired to bless others even in your lack? Are you praying for provision so you can help others, too?

Like how God saw Adelina’s heart, He sees yours too.

Adelina received God’s answer to her prayers when a money transfer services rented her space. She now has all her needs provided for and more—she was even blessed with a new car and a small food business!

As you pour your cup into others, you won’t run out. God’s provision overflows through you. Now, Adelina overflows with thanksgiving!

“I’m very thankful to God! All I have is daily gratitude to Him,” Adeline shared.

Debts, bills, job loss. All these financial struggles could make a person feel down and blue. Turn your eyes to Jesus, you will have the confidence that He will carry you through.

God will provide, because He cares for you.

“And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.” (2 Corinthians 9:8 NLT)

Battling One Disease After the Other—Is Healing Still Possible?

After all the pain she went through, Haidie Columna can answer a resounding “Yes!” to this question. Be encouraged with her story.

Haidie was pregnant with her second child when she faced a life-threatening battle in the form of uterine polyps.

“Even a miniscule cough or sneeze made me bleed. There were moments when I thought the baby in my womb died because of the intense bleeding,” Haidie recounted.

Her worries about her delicate pregnancy were aggravated with all the costly medications she had to take.

But, the most agonizing part was that Haidie had to battle her sickness without her husband because he was working overseas.

Have you been through a miserable situation like hers?

Haidie was crying out to God when she came across her favorite inspirational TV program, The 700 Club Asia.

“I was encouraged with the story of a pregnant woman who was diagnosed with cancer. She trusted God for her healing,” she shared.

The woman’s testimony filled Haidie’s heart with hope that God would preserve her son.

And He did.

Haidie gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and her uterine polyps miraculously went away.

Haidie trusted God wholeheartedly, and He did not fail her. Would you do the same?

But, just when Haidie thought her struggles are over, another adversity came that test her faith.

She was diagnosed with appendicitis and had to undergo surgery.

If you were in Haidie’s position, how would you feel and what would you do?

She and her husband knew they needed a weapon as they walk through another trying time—prayer. So, they called the CBN Asia Prayer Center to seek encouragement.

Prayer works!

Haidie had a successful surgery. She witnessed God’s favor in every step of the way.

“The Lord sent doctors that are strong in the faith! And we only had to pay a smaller amount for the whole surgery,” she joyfully narrated.

Haidie’s story of healing is a beautiful testament of God’s boundless grace overflowing in the lives of those who trust Him.

And she wants to encourage you with Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:33:

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Living under God’s boundless grace and unfailing love starts by knowing Jesus. Receive Him in your heart today!

Are you believing God for healing and restoration? We want to stand with you in prayer! Call the CBN Asia Prayer Center hotline 8-737-0700 or leave a message here.

“God’s outpour of blessings did not stop. Here’s what He did in our lives_4

“God’s outpour of blessings did not stop. Here’s what He did in our lives”

Lourdes Cresencio blurted out these words. She could not believe the miracle that was set before her eyes.

Before that, Lourdes remembered experiencing an extreme low when she suffered a heart attack while her husband suffered a stroke. They were caught off-guard. They had no money to cover their medical expenses that amounted to more than a million pesos. 

“I asked, ‘Why is this happening to us? We were so unprepared financially, yet I believed that God would not allow situations that I cannot handle,” Lourdes recalled. She was left with Php 6,000 in her pocket after trying to sell their property to no avail.

They had nowhere to run but to the merciful arms of God.

In the midst of her despair, Lourdes chanced upon The 700 Club Asia and was moved by the story of a woman who learned how to give even though she, too, was in dire need.

Boldly holding onto God’s promises of healing and provision, Lourdes faithfully supported God’s work by donating to the CBN Asia. 

“Even when we got sick, we did not stop giving because I know who my God is. I know that He will finish what He has started,” Lourdes hoped.

True as they say, God moves in miraculous ways. God honored Lourdes’ generous and obedient heart. Just a week after she made her donation, the outpour of miracles started.

It was effortless and trouble-free! Someone reached out to me and wanted to purchase our property. God was really faithful to us,” she shared.

Apart from that blessing, Lourdes’ husband was discharged from the hospital for freeWhat happened next further solidified her faith, stirred her love for God, and strengthened her belief in giving.

God’s outpour of blessings did not stop there. I recovered from my sickness and was told that I did not need to undergo any medical operation. All my medical needs were met. I was in awe of how God miraculously moved in my life!

Do you also want to experience God’s outpour of blessings in your life?

Out of her own need, Lourdes gave to the work of God. If God honored her heart, it could happen to you as well! As you give generously and freely, may you experience His blessing in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. (Deuteronomy 15:10 NIV)

10222020_Do Miraculous Healings Still Happen Today

Do Miraculous Healings Still Happen Today?

Inutile. Hopeless. Better off dead.

These are the words that Joseline Adversalo used to describe herself when she found out that she has rheumatic heart disease.

Joseline lost hope and spiraled into depression when she learned that apart from the serious disease that damaged her heart’s valve, she also has a growing cyst on her chest. Their family felt like they were drowning in financial problems on top of her health challenge. They were faced with overwhelming and seemingly unending problems.

This is when Joseline contemplated suicide to end her miseries. She was deceived into thinking that, maybe, a bottle of muriatic acid could stop all the physical and emotional pain she experiences.

“I did not know what to do then. I lost hope because my problems came all at the same time. There were times that I wanted to kill myself because I felt I was inutile; I could not take it any longer. I felt so useless, Joseline recalled.

Like Joseline, have you ever felt so helpless in life? Where do you find hope?

Amid her helplessness and anguish, Joseline saw a sliver of hope. A concerned friend came and advised her to watch The 700 Club Asia to be inspired by stories of people who are miraculously healed by God.

“My friend was right. When I watched The 700 Club Asiathe hosts prayed for people who have cysts. joined the hosts in praying and claimed it when they said that God has already healed me, Joseline shared. 

Right after the prayer, Joseline felt the instant relief and peace that overflowed in her heart. While she prayed for miracles, she grew deeper in faith and believed that she will experience them, too.

God did not disappoint Joseline. He proved that miracles still happen today, and He showed it in her life.

“I did not undergo any operation; I did not take any medicine. The instant healing of the cyst in my chest is God’s miracle,” she said, in awe of the unexplainable healing that she experienced after she prayed.

Because her cyst was already clearedit became possible for her to underwent heart surgery. God also surrounded Joseline with people who blessed her financially and supported her in prayers.

Heart mended and faith strengthened, Joseline discovered that nothing is impossible for those who believe in the power of Jesus.

Before, all I can do was cry about my problems. But now, my heart is full of thanksgiving and joy because God keeps on pouring blessings after blessings into my life,” Joseline ended.

Would you like to experience God’s miraculous healing, too?

If it happened to Joseline, it could also happen to you. Whatever sickness you may have right now, know that God’s healinfavors the faithful. As long as you believe that He can do wonders and miracles in your life, then He can bring it to fruition.

Do not give up on your miracle.

Surrender all your worries and claim the miraculous healing, blessings, and peace that God is offering to you today, just as how He promised in His Word.

“But now I will heal and mend them. I will make them whole and bless them with an abundance of peace and security. (Jeremiah 33:6 CEB)

Do You Want to be Accepted?

Youth, beauty, and talent – Ney Leyva already got everything she needs to reach her ambitions and secure her sister’s future.

After being raised solely by their grandmother, Ney shouldered the responsibility of being the family’s breadwinner. She worked as a professional dancer.

However, when the local dance scene industry unfortunately plummeted, Ney suffered a huge financial loss. She then met a man who could give her the financial security she needed.

“I was tempted by my friends to have a relationship with him. Getting him felt like a challenge to me,” Ney recalled.

She was lured into thinking that cohabitating with a man will give her security.

After a while, Ney’s boyfriend got her pregnant. She thought it will make their lives happier.

But, they lost the baby.

After the tragedy, her boyfriend left Ney. Her world turned upside down.

She felt like she was drowning in struggles. She resorted to drinking alcohol and taking illegal drugs which eventually ruined her relationship with her family.

“It was too painful. I felt like I had no one to turn to,” Ney cried.

One day, while still drowning in despair, Ney fell down their house’s staircase. In a flash, she saw darkness surrounding her.

It became the wake-up call she never thought she needed. It dawned on her that the life she was living then was not the life she dreamt of.

A neighbor reached out to Ney and patiently introduced the Word of God to her thereafter. Upon knowing Jesus, her thirst for acceptance was quenched. The love of God helped her turn her back from addictions.

“Words aren’t enough to express my gratitude to God. I can’t thank Him enough for the good life He has given me now,” Ney said, smiling.

Secured in the kind of love that accepts her, no matter what she has done, Ney has now built a beautiful family and continues to honor the Lord.

“I knew now why my first relationship didn’t work out. It was a wrong one,” Ney pondered.

Like Ney, are you looking for acceptance and validation from the people around you?

Perhaps, you are looking in the wrong places.

Isaiah 43:4 says, “Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life.”

Do you want to feel accepted? Look to Jesus.

You are valuable in His eyes that He traded everything in exchange for your life. Whenever you feel unloved and unaccepted, may you be reminded that Jesus loves you, accepts you wholeheartedly, and looks at you as His precious and honorable child, no matter what you’ve gone through. Fret not! His grace is ready to meet you right where you are because you already have God’s acceptance.

Are you ready to feel the unending grace of Jesus Christ in your life? Visit the CBN Asia website and take your first step to peace. If you need someone to talk to, you may call the Prayer Center and we would love to pray for you!

What Does Your Faith Look Like?

For Rolly Monsurahis faith is like an array of different colors. For him, his life is God’s beautiful masterpiece. 

Even after suffering from polio at such a young ageRolly still sees a bright future ahead of him. He never lost hope because he knew that the God his father introduced to him is a good and loving God. 

So instead of focusing on his health conditionRolly honed his talent. The boy developed a passion for the art of drawing and painting. Growing up, he found his spot in the world of marketing as a marketing manager in a hotel. 

However, Rolly’s experiences were not always sunshine. He also had a fair share of grief, specifically, when his marriage fell apart. During his darkest days in the 1980she chanced upon The 700 Club and found comfort watching the program. 

“Pat Robertson was praying, and there’s always an invitation to call for prayer and counseling. So, I called,” Rolly shared. 

Life went on. Rolly resigned from his job and focused on his freelance works in advertising 

This change, however, greatly affected their family financially. There came a point when he could not afford the schooling of his son anymore. Fees were piling up.  

As a loving father, it broke his heart that he was unable to provide for his son. Once again, Rolly felt his life hit rock bottom.  

Yet, he endured these tough challenges and more through prayers and God’s graceHe phoned CBN Asia’s Prayer Center who intently and intensively prayed for him and his family. 

“I was calling the Prayer Center almost every week. I have a deadline, but I was assured that God will take care of those things for me,” Rolly recalled. 

God turned Rolly’s gloomy moments into hope. His faith burned brighter and stronger in the midst of those trials.  

God did not disappoint him. Rolly’s powerful prayers and unwavering faith paved way for God to bless him with a new project that enabled them to pay his son’s tuition fee. 

After experiencing God’s kindness firsthand, Rolly decided to pay it forward by being a faithful partner of CBN AsiaBelieving that he is called to be a good steward of God’s blessings, Rolly became a regular donor since then

Now, he continues to live with childlike faith. 

Even though I have a lot of shortcomings, God is still good to me. I am very grateful that I was enlightened. Everything fell into place!” Rolly ended. 

How about you, what does your faith look likeDo you feel like you’re surrounded by darkness right now? 

Like Rolly, believe that you are God’s work of art! Thus, He won’t allow you to perish and be left alone in a gloomy world. Let Him paint your life with vibrant colors of hope and mercy! Suffering may last for a while, but God will reward your faithfulness for His glory. 

As what 1 Peter 1:6-7 reminds usIn all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.

Do you need prayers right now? You may call the CBN Asia Prayer Center at 8737-0700 and take your first step to peace.
