Was at Dataran Merdeka for the first time tonight. It looked so.. regal. Sigh.
I’m so glad I was born in this land. I love Malaysia, and though it’s nothing but chaos all around me, while I breathe, I still hope for my nation. I know her worth in God’s heart. Malaysia is scorned by the nations, and even by her own people, but there is a purpose dreamed of in His heart for this nation that no eye has seen and no ear has heard.
See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. – Isaiah 60:2
This was spoken over Israel in approx 400 BC but today the same words resound over this nation. In the midst of some of the darkest years Malaysia has ever seen, His glory will erupt in the local Church like never before. The years that are coming will be turbulent, but in the midst of it all, His presence will be known more and more and His Church will stand as a sure lighthouse for this nation. Just you wait and see.
Happy Merdeka Day Malaysia. You are precious and not forgotten.
