An Overflow of Hope

Day 10 (16 Aug 2017, Wednesday)

It is an amazing work of God that He fills us with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit working in us. Such a hope is neither self-manufactured, nor worked up in a frenzy by our temporal physical and emotional outburst. It is the work of the Holy Spirit. It is His greatand mighty power at work in us.

We need the Holy Spirit because it is by His power that we are filled with a confident hope in God. My prayer is that the power of the Holy Spirit may be at work in us mightily as we pray, as we worship, and as we read the Word of God throughout the days of our lives. It does not matter what we have done for the Lord, but when the Holy Spirit is at work empowering and strengthening us, the end result is the same for all, that we will be filled with a confident hope in God.

Hope, real hope, is a precious commodity and a rarity in a world that seems to be bleak and hopeless. The Church of Jesus Christ in Malaysia must stand tall and strong, holding forth the good news in Christ Jesus and to be filled with a confident hope in God. Then and only then will we see a game-changing kind of Church in our nation.

God bless Malaysia! God bless our Church in Malaysia. Amen.

Pray for the States of Malaysia : Melaka

Declare God’s blessings to be upon the diverse ethnic groups represented in the state of
Melaka, i.e. Malay, Chinese, Indian, Peranakan Chinese, Kristang and Chitty.

Land reclamation projects are carried out on a large scale along Bandaraya Melaka’s
coast due to the high demand of land for development. Such projects have had a
negative effect on the environment and marine life, adversely affecting the local
fisherman. Pray for proper regulations to be enforced and adhered to in such land
reclamation projects.

Pray that God will reverse whatever negative perception Christianity has on the locals
because of the cruel invasion of the Portuguese in 1511, and that the Church, as the
agent of God, will demonstrate Christ-like love and unity while ministering to the lost
through practical means.
