I am not Afraid – Saya Tidak Takut
Psalm 46:3 NKJV “Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.”
Today’s Miracle Day was brought by God’s servants in the Marketplace from various industries and professions, Teddy Menas (The Production House Photo & Video), Hana Atmawati (The Printer Manufacture), Oktavia Shiu (Entrepreneur), Daniel Kristanto (Entrepreneur) and Sulistyo Rini (The Property Company).
God is a Good Shepherd
Teddy Menas delivered the Word of Word from Psalm 23:1-4 NKJV “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”
God gives us a guarantee and protection as good shepherd if we are close to Him. We are not free from problems, especially on days like this, we face problems at work, at home, or problems in our business that keep us at a crossroad. So, we make our own plans for our lives. However, we don’t get ways out, but we experience failure. God is the good shepherd who guides us on the right path, not the path of failure.
Not Being Afraid, But Becoming a Conqueror
Even though we are facing a very difficult life right now, if God is the shepherd, then we will not be afraid because God guarantees our salvation, needs, and even our future. The key to a blessed life is when we seek God and make Him above all else (Matthew 6:33). Involving God in our lives will give us courage. We will not be afraid of all the situations we experience. The promise of God’s Word is that with Jesus, we can certainly face all the obstacles that come our way. There are new solutions and new strength in our lives, even we will be more than conquerors if we are in God.
As a good shepherd, Jesus will not leave us, but He will fight for us even to the point of giving His life for us. Hana Atmawati delivered the Word of God from John 3:16, then invited the congregations to accept Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior and surrender their lives to God.
Do you want to be made well?
Oktavia Shiu continued preaching the Word of God from John 5: 1-9 about Healing on the Sabbath at the pool of Bethesda. In Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate there is a pool, called Bethesda in Hebrew. In the pool there was a porch where there were a large number of sick people waiting for the shaking of the pool water. For when the angel of the Lord came down and shook the waters of the pool; whoever stepped into it first will be cured regardless of the disease. In the pool there was a man who had been sick for thirty-eight years.
This person was sick and had no family or relatives. The waiting in faith and belief brought Jesus to come to him and say, “Do you want to be made well?” and Jesus performed miracles on a man who was sick for thirty eight years. Likewise with our lives, if we continue to wait in our faith that God is able to perform miracles, then God will work His miracles on our lives.
Daniel Kristanto then lead the prayer and encouraged the congregation to believe in God and that Jesus is able to heal all illnesses and help us in accordance with God’s Word from Isaiah 53: 5. During this live broadcast, we received several prayer requests to our Contact Center and many came to the Lord Jesus and experienced healing.
Before the service was closed, Sulistyo Rini asked the congregation to intercede for the nation (Jeremiah 29: 7). The intercessory prayer was led by Hana Atmawati and Daniel Kristanto. The service was closed by inviting all congregation to be a blessing in their offices and comply with government regulations in an effort to break the chain of this pandemic. All Praise and Glory go to Jesus Christ who has blessed many lives today. Amen.
