During yesterday’s message by Faith Community Church’s Missions Coordinator, Bro Yew Beng, he shared an inspiring quote by King George VI from his 1939 annual Christmas address to the Commonwealth.
The context was that Britain was on the brink of world war. In the midst of the uncertainty, fear and expectation of gloom, King George exhorted his people as follows:
I said to the man who stood at the Gate of the Year, ‘Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.’ And he replied, ‘Go out into the darkness, and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be better than light, and safer than a known way.’
What a statement of faith!
For those of us struggling with uncertainty and questions, let’s hold fast to that thought: When we put our hand into the hand of God, we can go out into the darkness and face uncertain times because being in His hand is better than light and safer than the known!
