Breakthrough of my spiritual life
Few days ago, when I woke up in the morning, there was a prompting in my heart. Hence, I knew that God wanted me to note down these testimonies.
On 22nd March 2009, when we departed from Kuala Lumpur and was heading towards Malacca to attend the Saturday’s “Power and Prophetic Ministry” at CKRM Leadership Training (SEA) Sdn Bhd, my heart was filled with hunger and excitement. I did not expect this trip to CKRM was actually God’s will, that He began to lead me, entering into His spiritual world and to activate the gifts of the Spirit within me.
This was a prophecy given to us (my husband & me) that God would lead us to a man & a woman to revive our spiritual lives. Hence, the prophecy has come to pass.
While attending the meeting at CKRM for the first time, God used Ps. Esther to open up my hardened and hidden heart that was not known to anyone. At that moment, I heard the Word of God which I had not heard it for quite some time. God knows everything about me and every step that I had gone through. More importantly, He loves me and He knows that I do love Him and hunger for Him. The Lord also used the pastors to restore and strengthen me, and activated the prophetic gift which the Lord has previously given to me. From that day on, there was a breakthrough in my spiritual life.
After attended the meeting at CKRM, I realised my spiritual senses began to be more sensitive. During my sleep at night, I began to have dreams and some of them were revelation from the Lord and spiritual renewal. When I woke up from the sleep, my whole body was very refreshed, as if I had just taken a fresh shower over at the waterfall. While I was praying for others and talking to my friend over the phone, all of a sudden I would see visions regarding their situations. Besides, I could listen clearer to the voice of the Holy Spirit and to discern them. Sometimes, I would hear my spirit singing or praying. There was once while I was singing a song, I stopped at the latter part of the song as I do not know the lyric, I then heard my spirit continued singing. After verifying, it was confirmed that the lyric sang was correct.
Furthermore on yesterday, I clearly heard beautiful melody of a piano at my home, and I could smell a thick fragrance. My heart was filled with joy and I know that was the presence of God. There were also two experiences where the Lord let me feel His heartbeat, showing me that He is joyful and willing to show mercy and forget our sins. While I was struggling with sins, suddenly I realised I was in Him, my past was already been put to death and everything He has given me everything He has; the unlimited purity, love, forgiveness, joy, peace, and victory. I need not depend on my strength to overcome sins but to only surrender to God and rest in Him. I had already known all this truth, but I had yet to personally experience it. It was just so real. The difference is like between reading a book about some tourist attractions, and to actually visit them in reality.
Ever since our first visit to CKRM till now, God has been dealing with my sins and sanctifying me, leading me to repentance and to live a holy life. It is His heartbeat that my life is to be consecrated and only belongs to Him. On 11th April 2009 (Saturday), before we departed to go to CKRM at Melaka, during my prayer, God told me that Jacob has passed and He wants to give me a new name of Israel. On that particular Saturday (11th April), Pastor Esther told me she received that the Lord gives me a new name called “Dorcas”, my old has passed away, and God has already opened a new chapter in my life. I believe that this is only the beginning of entering into a new spiritual life; there will be more things to come in the future. Most importantly, it is to draw me closer to Jesus and knowing Him better.
Deep in my heart, I thank God that He began to prepare and equip me, in order for me to serve Him. God will never forget His promise. He is a miraculous and faithful God. I thank God for raising up CKRM Melaka, a ministry that is humble yet full of God’s power. I thank God for leading His servants, Pastor Paul and Pastor Esther to Melaka, so that those in Melaka, who are spiritually hungry and thirst, could be blessed. I also thank God, for remembering Malaysia and I believe through His servants, God is going to light up the fire of revival over here. Amen!
