I initially thought that I would not be able to attend this year’s Oceania Convention themed “POWER14”, as I believed my visa was due to expire before the conference. However, I found out later that my visa was only due to expire after the conference! Consequently, I managed to register for POWER14 a week before the closing date, and this was just one of the many small things that God was doing.

On my daily bus ride to work, whenever I see a sick or disabled person, I would say a little prayer for them from a distance. Because of my lack of confidence, I always doubted whether the person I prayed for would receive healing, yet I always hoped that God would continue to bless them. However, during POWER14, I got to really experience God’s tangible presence for the first time!

After Session 6, Ps Randy Clark asked those who felt any form of heat or tingling to come to the front, whilst those who did not to kneel down and continue to pray. During that time, I felt goose bumps all over my body. However, I did not want to step out to the front, but the tingling continued to the extent I could no longer stand. I thought if I prayed in tongues this sensation would go away, but after I prayed for what felt like two seconds, I started to weep and my whole body started to shake. I tried to stop, but it was out of my control. Even though I felt scared, I had a calm sense of peace and joy in me. It took a while for the shaking and weeping to stop as I learnt to let go instead of resist.

During my encounter with God, I kept thinking – why was I shaking and crying non-stop? Not long after, an unknown lady who was sitting behind me tapped on my shoulder and asked if she could tell me something. She told me, “God wants me to tell you that He wants to send you somewhere far so that you could glorify Him and continue to pray for others.” I was uncertain about what the lady said, but it made sense later on when someone asked me if I have prayed for this before.

My daily commute to work came to mind! God used this lady to speak to me about overcoming my doubts to believe that the people I prayed for would be healed. Despite all my doubts, God never gave up on me. As I pondered a little longer, a passage from the Bible came to mind – God chose the weak but not the strong (1 Corinthians 1:27-29). I came to a realization that there is no need for me to be able, as long as I have faith and put my trust in God. He will guide me on every step of my life.

After this experience, I have a deeper conviction to study the Word of God in greater depths and to learn more about Him, so that I can testify that He is a great and real God who loves us so much that He sacrificed His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, for us. Let us continue to seek God. Amen.
