God has arranged my study ( Sonya Tayomi Hendra )
I want to testify the love of God in my life.
The first is about my study in Germany. Actually, I had a will to continue my study in Jogjakarta or Surabaya, but my parents and pastor did not permit it. I was angry at that time, but then I could be meek and tried to be obedient. Not so long time after that, Mrs. Wita in Germany offered me to study German there for one year without paying any money. I agreed and went to Germany in 2012. I felt the help of God in my life there. On the first school day, I could not endure because I did not understand what my teacher said. I was hopeless and wanted to go home to Indonesia, but the shepherding Word strengthened me to finish my study for one year in Germany. If God had not helped me, I would have been there for one week only and gone back to Indonesia.
The second is about my study in university after I went back from Germany. I thought that I was unable to pass the admission test to a state university. I had no ability because I had not studied at public school for two years after my graduation from Senior High School. I thought that all materials I had gotten for three years in Senior High School vanished away from my brain. Consequently, I had to study the materials again. For me, it was not easy to do. One day before the admission test, I went to the campus for looking at the place where I would get it. My hands were so cold with trembling although I only looked at the place. The next day, I asked the prayer of Rev.Widjaja and his wife, and then I went to the campus for doing the test. I felt that the prayer strengthened me so much to make me not afraid, but calm. I kept on worshiping God in my heart on the way to go there. The nearer the distance to arrive there was, my heart-beat became faster. I thought I could pass the Academic Potential Test in seventy five percent of certainty. But, I thought I would fail in two hundred percent of certainty for the other tests because I could not answer all the questions correctly. I answered them only by my feeling and intuition.
My father phoned me after the test to ask me about that. I wanted to cry because I surely felt that I could not pass the test. That day was Tuesday. I came to the church to do Prayer Service. I cried bitterly to God. I said that I would not pass the test every time my friend or family asked me about that. I also said that it would be a miracle if I passed the test. Godâ€™s Word always said â€œSURRENDER TO GOD AND LET HIM MAKE WAR FOR YOU, all things will be good and the miracle will happen for sure.â€ I cried and asked the forgiveness of God because of my disbelief to His power that actually is greater than all things. As a result, I could feel peaceful. I could answer to my friend who asked me that I would surely pass the test because God made war for me. Nevertheless, the sound of my flesh was so strong indeed. I looked for the information of the second test a day before the announcement of the first admission test. Godâ€™s Word reminded me again in the Morning Prayer Service that He Himself made war for me. Finally, I fully surrender to God. I had prayed to God that He would give me the miracle in my life before I checked the announcement of the result of the test in the website. I got calm and brave to see the result. I saw â€œCONGRATULATION, YOU PASS.â€ I jumped joyfully and told my parents about that. Afterwards, I cried alone because God really performed His miracle in my life. I would not have passed the admission test if God had not helped me. This is my testimony. I hope it can be blessing for us.
