I Believe In You

I remember when Pastor Sam Kim first asked me to preach at Solomon’s Porch Singapore. I had never imagined myself in the pulpit, and really struggled to see myself doing a half decent job. But even when I didn’t believe in myself, my pastor believed in me. He might have regretted it when I got on stage and motor mouthed through the whole sermon in half the allotted time. I was so nervous I’m not sure anyone caught a word of what I was saying.


A couple weeks back I gave my last sermon at SP. I’ve slowed down my delivery, but I still feel so unworthy every time I get up there. Anyways, I shared that when God calls, often it’s from a place of lack. We might feel unable, but he is always able. He always has more faith in us than we have in ourselves.


Every now and then, we encounter a friend, a spouse, or a spiritual father who believes in us more than we believe in ourselves. Make sure to give thanks, because they are a gift from God.
