Greetings to all Brothers and Sisters-in-Christ,
May the Presence and Shalom of the Lord be with you and family. Thank you for your great support in standing with us to bring the Word of God and praying as ONE for the city and beyond in these unprecedented times.
In the midst of Covid-19 pandemic and social unrest in Hong Kong, we are reminded of these words of encouragement from apostle Paul to us all that we are to ‘Rejoice in the Lord always…The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.’ (Philippians 4:4-7)
During our Monday regular prayer for the Faith Comes By Hearing Asia Ministry, one of the organizers for the ONE Campaign, we are reminded that in this season that we are not to lose heart but to arise as His Kingdom people to come into His Presence. We are to draw out the voices of the fear and doubt and enter each day putting on the full armour of God ( Ephesians 6:11-12).
We are not to fight the wrong battles and succumb to the schemes of the evil one; for our struggles are not against flesh and blood but against the spiritual powers, authorities and forces of evil in the heavenly realms at work to steal, kill and destroy the fulfilment of His Kingdom purposes and plans both in our lives and circumstances around us. The One who holds the keys to the Kingdom has already won the victory and as His children, we trust in His Sovereign plan. We are to continually surrender all ours to Him, letting go of any fears, offences, conflicts or doubts and allowing Jesus Christ to reign in our hearts afresh. Our disappointments will become God’s appointment. Our Great Shepherd will lead and guide us with peace in our every step for the battle belongs to the Lord.
Therefore, let us as ONE body of Christ across the city unite together in ONE Spirit to intercede and come with humble hearts before the Cross that His Kingdom comes, His will be done across the city and beyond. May we draw deeper in His Word and find renewed empowerment from the Holy Spirit. May many who are lost in their journeys encounter the redeeming love of Jesus Christ in this challenging hour, His truth bringing forth transforming grace and power over their lives and circumstances in Jesus’ Name.
God bless you all.
