"We can overcome. The power belongs to us to overcome. At some point we need to make a conscious decision not to surrender that power to the enemy and his lies." ~Pastor Hazeil R. Miñoza
In this episode, Pastor Hazeil R. Miñoza speaks about overcoming shame, guilt and regret; leaving the past behind and moving forward in God.
Pastor Hazeil is a visionary servant leader who has a heart to reach the lost and respond to the needs of the poor and downtrodden. She leads the Filipino Congregation of the Cornerstone Community Church Singapore in a dynamic way and is passionate about seeing every Filipino be on fire for God.
Living in the full knowledge of God's ordained purpose for our lives is the greatest sense of fulfillment that we could ever have as Christians. Otherwise, life is meaningless and has no eternal value. I have learnt that to live in my purpose is to live each day of my life completely focused on doing those things God created and equipped me for and daily enables me to accomplish, by His grace. It is primarily about impacting lives with the good news of Our Lord Jesus Christ through a channel God has entrusted you to use and becoming a God’s vessel for the divine purpose of demonstrating His unconditional love. This is not self-ambition, but rather living selflessly for the purposes of God. This is an unmerited favour of God, a huge privilege, and a level in life to be greatly desired.
I therefore invite you to join us for this first episode of Couch Conversations by Hummingbird Journeys as we share our hearts and journeys with you. We trust that by God's grace, you too will shortly begin your own journey to discovering and fulfilling God's purpose and will for your life, in Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
