God is Good ( Mrs. Wita Mertes (Germany) )
My testimony is about my thanksgiving that God has helped and protected my family throughout 2011, especially for my private life. I have experienced life renewal day by day because of shepherding Wordpreached repetitively. The shepherding Word corrected, repaired, and managed my private life in my friendship and marriage, especially in my position as a wife.
There were many of my bad characters such as getting angry and having stress fast, not having patience but anxiety and fear. I also wanted to win in all matters and did not want to be obedient. I did not realize that such bad characteristics began to decrease and there were many strange things or changes about my character and habit.
My friends also felt the change I had after I had been shepherded, even my husband said that I became strange, meaning I changed. Hearing it, I said in my heart that it was not only them who saw the strangeness in my life but I, myself, also astonished with the strangeness of mine.
I believe that all of it could happen because of the work of the shepherding Word. Soon after I was changed by the Word, my heart became more peaceful and quiet and my faith became firmer, so I could surrender to God to pray and worship Him the more. Moreover, there was extra strength that encouraged me to serve and minister God although there were many hindrances about the time and condition I had to face.
Nevertheless, the power of the Word of God and the anointing of Holy Spirit have no limit and are able to help us, so I have been being shepherded until this time although there was far distance. I give thanks to God because of the revelation of His Word I have received throughout 2011 that has given me way out and victory over my struggling. The Word has precededin order to make me watchful before something happens.
It is a new thing for me that I become more sensitive facing something. It is in line with the Word preached by Rev. Widjaja that 2012 is the year of watching to face Gethsemane.
I believe that God will help and strengthen me with His Word as long as I heed it solemnly until I can be faithful and obey the truth of the Word.
It is my longing that I can live in righteousness and holiness much more, so I can be counted worthy to enter the revival of building Christ’s body until I can get the miracle.
Through shepherding system, I believe that the Lord will make a way for me for sure according to the promise of His Word I received in Ambon. I also ask the prayer of Rev. Widjaja and his wife and all of you that we in Germany can keep being in the true teaching Word. We are far from you but the love of God which cannot be limited is able to unite us all.
This is my testimony, I hope it can be blessings for us.
