Isaiah 42:6 – "I am the LORD, I have called You in righteousness, I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You, and I will appoint You as a covenant to the people, as a light to the nations…”
A New Guinea native attended a missions conference in Singapore. He had never seen a city, and he was amazed at the “long buildings.” But he was terrified by the rushing traffic.
One day he was crossing the street with a conference participant who worked in urban areas. The man from New Guinea hesitated at the curb. The city missionary took him by the hand. “When I come to your jungle, you will hold my hand to help me. When you come to my jungle, I will hold your hand and help you.” God holds our hand through life’s jungles.
