God Pleads My Study and Service to Him
By: Andro Damanik - Medan

I want to testify about God's
kindness in my study in two things.
- I am in the third semester and
joining the lecturing of Block 8 now. God has helped me in the Block
7 whose topic was Endocrine. It was a difficult topic for me because
it related to all hormones in human's body. A few days before
taking the test I discussed and did responsive study with the
members of my study group about all things related to the topic for
the test. I knew that my friends had already understood all
lectures given by the lecturer. Praise the Lord that I could
understand all topics of the lectures from the slide shown by
the lecturer. The schedule of the test in the Block 7 was on
The schedule of my test was often on Monday and
Wednesday. It meant that the previous day was the day when I
had to serve and minister to God, namely on Sunday and
Tuesday. Then, I often envied my friends and said "how lucky
they are because they can study well all day long and have good
preparation before the test; whereas, I had to serve and minister to
God first until the evening and I was tired to study when I came
home." Nevertheless, the Word of God preached by Rev. Widjaja
reminded me that the service to God was not to persecute our
life, but was to make our life easier.
I prayed and
asked God for the forgiveness because I had thought like that. On
the day of the test, the test papers were distributed, and I read
the questions. I realized that the one hundred and thirty questions
were very difficult, and many of them were not in line with the
lectured materials. In facts, I could answer some of them because I
once read the matters in books or asked my father before. Of 130
questions I could only answer seventy questions surely, but I was
not sure about the remaining. I surrendered to God and prayed "God,
I have tried hard to learn. Please, help me and give the best to
After the test ended, almost all of my friends murmured
and said bad words because there were many difficult questions
that were not in line with the lectures. The result was
announced when I joined the fellowship in Pardede Hall, Medan in the
end of October 2013. I served God, and then I looked the result.
Praise the Lord that I got a good score. I got 71. It
meant that there were seventy one questions I could answer
correctly. There was only one student who got the highest score of
76. I was one of the best five students with the best marks in the
generation. I praise the Lord because He has helped me. I am sure
that God does not complicate my life with the service and ministry
that I have to do four times a week, but He makes my life easier.
Rev. Widjaja often says that the Lord never fools us
and always fulfills His promise when we earnestly serve and minister
- I was a member of the Students
Executive Council of the university who was obliged to be involved
in the committee of Christmas Service. I was appointed to arrange
the place and equipment for the service. Based on the decision made
in the meeting, the Christmas Service would be held on Saturday,
December 14 at 4.30 pm in the convention hall of a hotel in Medan.
I began to be restless because I had to serve and
minister to God in Youth Service at 5.15 pm on the same day.
I asked the chief of the committee to delay the Christmas Service
until December 16 or on Monday, but he said that it was impossible
to change the agreement of all members of committee only because of
I became more restless and thought to retire from the
committee, but I was afraid and reluctant to my seniors. I
only prayed and surrendered to God. Then, my friends and I
surveyed to book the hotel for the Christmas Service we had
discussed. As a result, the hotel could not be used for December 14
and 15, but December 16 or on Monday when there was no service
in my church.
Then, the chief of committee agreed about
the time to conduct the Christmas Service on Monday although he
first time had rejected it.
I gave thanks to God. I became
peaceful because I would not been hindered to serve in Youth Service.
I got a precious lesson. Rev Widjaja often says that God will
make a way if we long for serving Him. He is able to
arrange all things well.
God blesses you.
