Trust, the Basis of Our Hope

Day 7 (13 Aug 2017, Sunday) 

To believe is to trust

It’s as simple as that. We practice trust all the time, without thinking much of it, hardly ever
questioning. An example is when you order a Big Mac to eat, you are in effect saying by your action, that you trust the food you are consuming is what it claims to be. You don’t have a second thought on whether it is made of kangaroo meat instead of beef! That’s

Every time you get on a plane, you are expressing trust that the plane is airworthy, and though you have never grilled the pilots in an interview, you trust that they are qualified to fly the plane. You are, in effect, placing your very life into the hands of the captain and the co-pilot!

Now the question is this: if we live our everyday lives with such a trust, why is it so difficult to trust God and take Him at His Word? There is a serious inconsistency at work in our lives without us realising it!

And so, this is the right time, as we pray, to remove all our fears of truly trusting in God. The writer of Hebrews wrote of the necessity of faith. If we are to please God, we must trust in Him (Hebrews 11:6). The heart of the king is in God’s hand. It happened with Pharaoh
during Moses’ time. It was so with Nebuchadnezzar during Daniel’s time. And it can
certainly be so during our time.
God bless Malaysia! And yes, we can trust our God! Pray!

Pray for the States of Malaysia : Pahang

Pahang is the state which has a large majority of Peninsular Malaysia’s aboriginal peoples residing in. Declare the blessings of God to be upon Pahang’s population, from the jungle tribes to the villagers and to the town residents. Pray that they will come to know Jesus Christ as their personal source of hope and strength.

Pray for the relevant authorities to fervently impose and enforce stricter regulations curbing the extensive bauxite mining which has caused severe pollution and detriment to the environment.

Pray for the welfare of aboriginal tribes in Pahang (Semai,Jakun, Semoq Beri, Semelai,Jahut, Bateq, Temuan, Che Wong and Temoq) that they will be provided with the necessary aid and infrastructure for improved living conditions.
