Rejoice Always – Bersukacita Senantiasa

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones (Proverbs 17:22).  It is inevitable not to ever have a bad day, including believer. God never promises a life without tribulation, yet we are destined to be an overcomer.  Today’s Miracle Day is speaking one of the simplest instruction of God, yet quiet challenging if we do not comprehend it by heart, especially during in times of trouble.

The service was delivered by God’s servants in Marketplace from such a diverse industries and professions. Today service was brought by Rudy Ang (Entrepreneur), Rinto Mariden (Media Industry),  Rulofine Handayani (HR & HC), Eudia Kristin (Electrical Equiptment Industry) and Christin Hutabarat (Banking Industry).

Miracle Day 14 Agustus 2020

Rejoice always, pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances

Rudy Ang started with a prayer and a scripture taken from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. These three verses written as God’s wills in one whole package. That is to rejoice, pray and give thanks no matter the standings that we are in. These might seems contradictory but there is a reason why God wants us so because our source of joy is not on the ground of circumstances.

There is a strength in the joy of the Lord because God is the beholder of our future despite of our occurring condition. There is power in the prayers of believers and we position God truly our personal God when we give thanks to Him. We understand He is our source of everything. Therefore if we are in the state of declining, may it be financial crisis or any trials, do not hinder from God, instead it is time to draw closer to our Savior.

Rinto Mariden continues to lead the congregation with a prayer of salvation. His love for us is indisputable for He had willing to die on the cross, taking our position in order for us to receive everlasting life (John 3:16). An invitation was also given to those who want to respond to the calling of God to be His witness.

“A woman who is creative in faith”

The service carried on by the message of God, about how Jesus heals a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve consecutive years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.  Her creative faith in the Jesus was able to surpass the obstacles that Jesus was in the middle of a large crowd. Not expecting to be treated personally by Jesus, she believed that she would be healed when she could just reached Jesus’ clothes although there was no history anyone was ever healed in such way. But God never let one’s faith in vain. She was healed suddenly and miraculously according to her faith.

Eudia Kristin proceed the service by praying for sick, bringing to mind for the congregation that by the wounds of Jesus, we are healed as written in Isaiah 53:5. As this live stream was occurring, we received prayer requests through our call center and many came to Jesus Christ and received healing.

As believers of Christ we ought to pray without ceasing, especially in the middle of COVID-19 pandemic that is still occurring. The service continued with prayer of intercession lead by Rinto Mariden and Eudia Kristin, for the well being of Indonesia, for the government, economic stability and the health for all the citizens, particularly the infected.

Concluding the service, the congregation was encouraged to be a blessing for their local Christian office fellowship and to comply with government regulation in effort to put an end for this pandemic, and as well a closing prayer brought by Christin Hutabarat. We bring all praise and glory to Jesus Christ who had saved and healed many lives today. Amen.
