Allah Yang Setia

It is indeed gloomy times in Malaysia of late.

To date, four churches have become targets of cowardly arson attacks in the wake of the recent decision of the Malaysian High Court to allow Catholic’s Malay version of their publication The Herald to use the word ‘Allah’.

Personally, it is really sad to see such brutal acts happening in our own backyard. The audacity of these ‘internal terrorism’ clearly reflects how safe Malaysia is. On the other hand, the drama and events we are witnessing in front of our very own eyes has also brought out the voices from all quarters. A large majority of Christians and non-Christians (including Muslims) have come out to condemn these actions that is threatening national security.

As a Christian, this episode has made me reflect much deeper about my faith and God’s faithfulness.

1. In times of gloominess and darkness,  I’m confident His light would be able to shine brighter!

2. Looking at the brighter side of things, this episode has brought more Christian to their knees in prayer! A weapon oft forgotten, let’s continue to pray fervently for our nation.

3. We should also not allow our emotions to take over the situation. Rather, we should (more than ever) depend on God’s promise that He would be faithful to be with us, trusting God to protect us and eventually make the necessary judgments.

With my eyes turned upon His faithfulness, allow me to share this beautiful piece from the inspiring pen of Jonathan Prawira called Allah Yang Setia. Enjoy!
