Trinitarians

gave their “widow’s mite” Many Trinitarians have risen in faith and given sacrificially to grow a lasting legacy. Here are three testimonies of God’s abundant provision as they fulfilled their faith promises. Making a Faith Promise has been a challenge for me as it never fails to stretch my faith and emotions. Back in 2009, I was challenged by God to give a substantial amount to both the Missions and Vision Faith Promises. I struggled but decided to trust and obey God. I was determined to fulfill my faith promise even if it meant dipping into my savings. I was torn — do I give sacrificially from my savings or wait until God divinely provides? After much prompting by the Holy Spirit, I exercised my faith and dipped into my savings to fulfill my faith promise. To my amazement, about two months later, God provided through a very generous reward at work. And the amount was more than what I had given. I was reminded that God wants to bless my family and me but I had to first take the step of faith and obedience. I did not earn this, it is just the nature of our Heavenly Father to bless us because we are His children. Chen Chee Keong regional IT director

Last year, before the Vision Rally, my company decided to give me a 20% raise. It was a surprise. When Vision Rally came about, I wrote down the entire amount of the raise, an amount far greater than what I had ever given before. Amazingly, after 6 months, I was promoted and given another 10% increment. Eventually I left this company for another one with a better offer and working hours. The new job also come with 10% more pay. Truly, my God can never be out-given for His riches are endless as long as we keep our eyes on Him in faith. Grace Tan internal auditor

Last September, as the pastor prayed over the congregation before we penned down our faith promises, I felt God give me a figure. This was the first time that had happened and it was a huge amount. I hesitated because my job was unstable then. Still, I surrendered to the Lord and wrote down the lump sum, planning to save up over the next 12 months. Time flew by quickly and by March, I still wasn’t able to save up much. I was expecting to empty my bank accounts come September. Suddenly my company announced that we would all get our bonuses by April, even our loss-making department. When I received my bonus, I realized it was almost the same amount as my faith promise! It is truly extraordinary as I managed to fulfill my faith promise six months early. Through this, God taught me that a faith promise is not about how much I can fulfill but how much I am willing to surrender and be a channel and magnifier of His faithfulness and goodness.
