Today, I was at the Jubilee Day of Prayer for Singapore with more than 50,000 from the Body of Christ.
It was definitely an appointment from God for my wife and I to be there, especially it being shortly after our return to Singapore. And the tickets were given to us!
As the session started, I was constantly welling up with tears of joy and thanksgiving.
Who are we?
Singapore is but a small nation, a little red dot. Despite this, look at what we have accomplished?
Our small in size and lack of resources have not prevented us to be overachievers and to grow in affluence.
Today, we are able to punch above our weight and stand tall among the other giant nations in the world.
But make no mistake, we are where we are because of His grace alone.
As a people, the Church must never forget that our success is because of His grace. It’s by His grace. And we must continue to stay strong in His grace.
The peace and prosperity that we are enjoying is because of God’s grace and mercy.
Where we are?
Sitting there before Him and in the presence of 50,000, I am grateful that I can be part of God’s Church at this defining period of the Jubilee.
I’m grateful for those spiritual leaders who have gone before us. I do not know them, but we are where we are today because they paid the price in standing in the gap.
I wish I could thank them personally, but I’m grateful for the pioneering generation of the unsung heroes of faith who have took up the role of ‘watchmen’ for our nation.
Their lives spent on bended knees cannot be left unrecognised or ignored. Today, the Church stands tall now on their shoulders.
Without them trail blazing His kingdom, we would not have a spiritual heritage as a Church in Singapore and to enjoy the fruits of their labour.
What are we to do?
I believe the Church is flipping the page towards a new era for Singapore in the year of jubilee.
The torch of the pioneering generation is going to be passed on to the next generation. And that generation has to step up to grab that torch to lead this nation as the next custodian and watchmen for Singapore.
What we see today of Singapore after 50 years is nothing in comparison to what lies ahead. Because each generation goes further than the generation preceding it.
God is not finished with His plan and purpose for this nation. And the Church is the reason.
It is my desire to be counted and be part of whatever He’s doing in and through Singapore, for I believe this is the reason He called me back!
