The True Teaching Word Gives Everything for Me

thank for what that happened in my life in 2013. In 2013 which was
the year of God's accompanying, I
really felt God's accompanying
life. In 2013, I felt that some points of the Word became my personal
experience as follows:
About the Word "if
we do not give the tithes, we will be cursed".
Since I did not give the tithes of my brother that was entrusted to
me immediately, I have to experience money deficiency for a while. I
ever lived with minimum money and it
was really like a curse.
the Word "God
It is related to the negligence in giving the tithes. When I did not
have enough money, the most important thing at that time was I could
eat and delay the payment of my insurance.
My salary should have
been enough for one month but I had not paid the insurance yet, so
money was not enough anymore
because I had to pay the insurance doubly. But, I had committed that
did not want to ask to my parents.
God really never lies. When I needed, He
gave it in due time.
I joined the fellowship in Singapore, I gave the money for
accommodation. But, I did not know the details and I did not want to
ask. Suddenly, I was called by the wife of the pastor. She asked
about my money that I had given for the fellowship in Singapore. The
amount of money I had given was more than the proper amount, so I
received the rest of my money at that time. Praise the Lord. When I
needed money, God
had the way to give it to me.
at that time, my motorcycle had a problem and I had to bring it to
service station. If I had not received that money, I would not have
been able to go to the service station for sure and it was dangerous
if I forced my motorcycle without the lamp to go to the church on
Monday. Praise the Lord, He
has arranged everything neatly.
the Word "through
General Service, the gifts will be added by God"
God is like receiving lottery".
the past time, I had ministered in Surabaya on Monday and Wednesday
only. On Saturday and Sunday, I ministered in Malang.
2011, I returned to Malang because of my job, so I did not minister
in Surabaya anymore. In 2012, God allowed me to work in Surabaya
again and I committed that I wanted to minister on Sunday evening in
So, I was fully shepherded in Surabaya.
guided me until
I could minister in Youth Service in Surabaya too. Suddenly, the
pastor decided that youth choir had to sing alone on Sunday,
separated from the general choir.
I surprised more because I
was chosen to train the youth choir.
I had not been able to read the note of song when joining the youth
choir for the first time. But, slowly, God
added the gift
to me and I did not know the exact time I could read the note of
I believed that General Service that I did in Malang
and Surabaya progressively increased the gift and gave new ministry
to me. Through this event, my eyes were opened more that ministering
God is really like receiving lottery.
I thought why I was chosen to train the youth choir while I knew the
others who were better than me.
I should rejoice like a person
who received a lottery and minister God earnestly without
the Word "there
were wisdom and power of God behind the cross".
visiting Singapore, I had been told by my father to look for a place
and ask the price of a thing there.
Actually, I felt lazy to find
that place. I thought that it was better to walk around to other
place because I had to go home (to Indonesia) earlier for
But, at last, I decided to find that place. In fact,
it was the
way of God to show me the way to go home alone.
If I had walked around, I would not have known the way home (to the
airport to go to Indonesia) and I would have been confused.

true teaching Word.
A few months ago, there was a prayer service in my office. It was
the first time for me. I knew nothing, but suddenly, before it was
begun, I had heard that the person in charge was a woman.

room, I just knew that the charge was to be a song leader. In a
short time, a

decided to go out from the worshiping room.
that time, my boss wondered with my decision but he did not protest.
The same event happened again in next few months. At that time, he
looked for male preacher, but the song
leader was female.
I thought that I would join the preaching of the Word without the
But, towards the day of the prayer service, I was not
calm and I asked my pastor and he said that
I did not need to join it.
This time, when I said that I could not join because the song
leader had to be male also, protests
began to come

it, but this time I could keep fighting.
Besides, the Word

They knew other churches that forbade the congregation to
go to cinema, but they kept assuming that the teaching I hold was

but I believe that behind everything, God has provided something
beautiful for me.
