Time certainly flies. As cliché as that may sound, I have never imagined that my 3 years in Polytechnic would have gone by so quickly. Sometimes as I look back to the day I first entered Ngee Ann to pursue the Engineering Common Programme (ECP) course, I cannot help but feel that God has been blessing me so much throughout this whole new journey. Today, I have graduated with my diploma!
I grew up in this church and it has always been comforting to know how much God has been with all of us, especially the youths. Watching how each and every one of us move from one stage to another, emerging stronger, bigger & taller; I know God has been good to us and as He has promised, “The LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us: (1 King 8:57)”. But most importantly, I have grown to learn that God has a plan for us and we should continually put all our faith and trust in Him.

It is very common for Christians to claim the promise that God will supply all their needs based on Philippian 4:19 which says, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” without looking at the verse before which says, “I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.” – Philippian 4:18
The “But” in verse 19 tell us that the promise is for those who were mentioned in verse 18. We too can claim the promise in verse 19 if we are taking care of the needs of others just like the Philippian Christians. When we take care of other people’s needs (some think that they would become poorer for it), God will take care of our needs.
