I am writing this blog on Christmas day. I had one of the most memorable Christmases this year. It has been a long time since I celebrated Christmas in Asia. I met up with many new and old friends for Christmas Eve and Christmas day lunch. I ate some yummy food over the past few days and enjoyed great fellowship. It is wonderful to spread the joy and love of God during this festive season. Here are some of my Christmas photos with friends.


Once again, I cannot help but say that Jesus is "My Good God!" I was really blessed by reading Ephesians 3:20 this week. I am reminded that God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine because He is working within us. God has a good plan and future for all His children. As we approach 2010, let's continue to believe God for greater things in the coming year.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Eph 3:20

There are three things that I would like to highlight about the goodness of God.


And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:19

We have a God who provides. Whatever we lack in our lives can become God's miraculous provision. Come before God in prayer and petition because He is a God that supplies all our needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. God provides more than just material things. He provides peace, joy, love, direction, wisdom and more that money cannot buy.


For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. 2Tim 1:7

God can restore our confidence and restore us from disappointment, sadness, misfortune and broken hearts. Like a potter restores a broken vase. God can restore our broken lives. I was once a very timid person until God came into my life and began to transform me into a new person. When we invite Jesus into our lives, Jesus begins the life transformation. Jesus changes us through His power and love working within us.


He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. 1 Peter 2:24

Jesus died to take away our sins and heal our physical body. I am really encouraged to hear a testimony in church of a person who was healed from the effects of a stroke after prayer. He was paralysed because of a stroke but Jesus healed him after receiving prayer. He is now able to walk and run. I want to believe God for more healing miracles to happen in 2010. Indeed, Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. The miracles Jesus performed 2000 years ago is also occurring today. Amen!

When you are in Asia, there are so many good eating places. I had the privilege of going to a nice restaurant for lunch with Ps Jimmy and leaders. The food was awesome! We had dim sim and roast duck in pancake. I took some photos of the food for your viewing and to whet your appetites!


During my devotions this week, I read one scripture that really brought deep conviction and challenged my heart.

for I (Jesus) seek not to please myself but him who sent me.
John 5:30b

Jesus’ ultimate desire was not to please himself or others, but God alone. Wow! This statement really hit me like an arrow. So many times, we live our lives for ourselves. I call this kind of lifestyle as "Self Pleasing".

Self Pleasing brings loneliness and isolation

For the first twenty years of my life, I was a "Self Pleaser". I did things for my own pleasure and enjoyment without much thought of others. I was the king of my life. No one mattered except for me. This selfish lifestyle brought much loneliness and isolation for me. I saw people as a means of getting what I wanted, rather than thinking about how I could bless them.

20I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Gal 2:20

Apostle Paul did not live for himself. He submitted his life in service unto God.

"Others Pleaser" brings fear and conformity

The second lifestyle that I lived was what I call "Others Pleasing". We live to please other people around us. Other pleasers try their best to make everyone around them happy in order to gain acceptance or keep the peace. We are afraid of losing friends, even if it comes at the expense of our personal convictions or moral behaviour.

for they loved praise from men more than praise from God.
John 12:43

I used to go clubbing every night or got up to mischief, just to increase my popularity among certain friends. There is always a sub-conscious fear of rejection within me if I don’t please the people around me. I lost my own identity and creativity because I wanted to conform to others or to please them.

"God Pleaser" brings freedom and fulfilment

After I became a Christian, I decided to have different lifestyle. I aimed to be a "God Pleaser" and I noticed some positive changes. Being a "God Pleaser" means I no longer live to please myself or other people, but I live to please God. It was not an easy decision because our society teaches us to focus on ourselves, rather than being God-focussed. However, when we decide to take the radical step of following Jesus’ teaching, we will witness life transformation, freedom and fulfilment.

"My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work". John 4:34

Personally, I have seen so many blessings as I decided to live for God's purposes for my life. I have seen God bringing out the talents and giftings in me to bring blessings to many people around the world. I discovered that when I surrendered my life to God, it was when I began to truly live! I would like to challenge you to be different by choosing to be a "God Pleaser" and see the wonderful life transformation that follows. Dare to be a "God Pleaser".

I just love walking around the city and seeing all the Christmas decorations. I like riding on the monorail and seeing the cars below. I am looking forward to celebrate Christmas in Asia. I know there will be plenty of good things to eat during this time. I would like to gain to some weight during this period. Below are some photos of the monorail, shopping centres and Christmas decorations.


I am so grateful for the love of God. I have known God for twenty years and His love for me has been so amazing. Where would I be today if I had not experienced God's love for my life?

I would like to share six aspects of God love from Psalm 145:13-19.

1. God's love is revealed through His faithfulness

13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.

God is faithful to all His promises. What He promises will come to pass at the proper time. Don't fret if you do not see the fulfilment of God's promises because He will certainly bring it to fruition in His time. God does not lie.

2. God's love is revealed through His encouragement

14 The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.

God is always there to pick us up when we fall. He encourages us to go beyond our capabilities. He helps us to overcome the challenges we face in life.

3. God's love is revealed through His provision

15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time. 16 You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.

God is our provider. As a father wants to provide the very best for his children. God wants to provide for our daily needs. Allow God to satisfy your innermost desires and needs today.

4. God's love is revealed through His righteousness

17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways and loving toward all he has made.

God is righteous and perfect. The more we walk with God, the more we become like Him in character. When we walk in God's righteousness, we will have peace and joy in our hearts.

5. God's love is revealed through His presence

18 The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

God is ever-present. We can call upon Him any time. He is always near us to help in our time of need. The Bible says God will never leave or forsake us.

6. God's love is revealed through His salvation

19 He fulfils the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.

God is our deliverer. He set us free from the power of sin and saved us from judgment to give freedom and eternal life. Our salvation came with a price, however. Jesus Christ died for us on the cross so that we can receive the gift of salvation.

Don't take the love of God for granted. Let us really appreciate what God has done and forward His love to someone.

It is wonderful to catch up with friends from around the world at a convention. I was happy taking photos with friends. Everyone looks so cool in the photos! Please let me know if your photos are in my blog. I love to hear from you!


While the disciples were with Jesus in a certain place, one disciple asked Jesus about prayer. I guess the disciple wanted to know how to have a powerful and effective prayer life like the master. Jesus shared with them a parable to highlight some important principles of prayer. Read Luke 11:5-9

5Then he said to them, "Suppose one of you has a friend, and he goes to him at midnight and says, 'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, 6because a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him.' 7"Then the one inside answers, 'Don't bother me. The door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed. I can't get up and give you anything.' 8I tell you, though he will not get up and give him the bread because he is his friend, yet because of the man's boldness he will get up and give him as much as he needs. 9"So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

I believe Power Prayer involves the following:

Power Prayer involves asking

When I was growing up, there were times when I did not want to ask anyone for help. I just wanted to be independent and self sufficient. I would struggle on my own in order to achieve something or acquire something. I guess all of us have an independent nature where we don't want to bother the people around us. We try to make things happen through our own efforts. We feel shy or reluctant to ask for help because it may be seen as a sign of weakness or inadequacy. In this parable, this man was bold in asking his friend for help, despite the inconvenient time. He was not self-conscious but he wanted to provide for his guest, who was at home and was hungry.

Pride can stop us from asking for help. This man was humble enough to ask for help because he did not have the resources to help his friend. We need to be humble, to acknowledge our needs before our God and ask for help in big things or small things. Over the years, I have developed a habit of coming to God in prayer in every situation. I see God as my friend who I can run to for help whenever I need. He will not turn me down when I come to Him in humility. Come before God and ask Him for your daily needs today and see His power at work in your life.

Power Prayer involves seeking

Sometimes prayer does not end with words only. Prayer may involve looking and seeking God for an open opportunity. For example, if I pray for a job, after prayer, I would start looking in the newspaper or yellow pages to find job vacancies. As I look for a job, I would be praying for God to lead me to the right position. We need to look for openings, contacts and opportunities after praying to God. The man in the parable sought out his friend for help. God may lead us to people who can provide help.

Power Prayer involves doing

When our prayer is combined with action, we will see great results. Often, God requires us to do something after we pray. We need to follow God's counsel or instruction after prayer. The man in the parable kept knocking on the door until there was an answer. He just persevered and did not quit. We need to ask questions to God like; "What does God requires me to do?"

When God called me into the healing ministry, I started to pray for His anointing and for open opportunities to minister in different countries and churches. I started to look for open doors and contacts. God is faithful to His calling. He made a way for me to be connected to many churches. I want to encourage all of us in our prayer life. Don't just pray but believe God for Power Prayer!

Healing Story

A man who came in a wheelchair, who after prayer testified that he felt new strength in his hips and managed to take a few steps for the first time in years. There was another girl who had limited hearing in one ear; she was healed. Many others were touched and healed by the power of God. In the air, there was a tangible sense of freedom and joy. Praise the Lord!
