People find hope in something that visible....Many people looking out for something that they can rely on. Some turn to Idol worship, cuz' they think this idol have a spirit that they can trust and rely on in time of need. But some people just find things anyhow to put their hope into.....I have seen the worse of the worse.....I can't imagine how this people need the Lord...Cuz' all of their life they try to look out for hope in their life. King David said..."My HOPE is in The Lord!" Yes..the hope of all mankinds only can find in Our God Almighty alone. Recently I went to Angkor Wat....One of the 7 wonders of the World. The Cambodians called it as "The Hope of Cambodia" I went there to find out why people call it Their Hope!.... As I walk up and down in Angkor...what I saw is only ruins of stone temples.....nothing very interesting despise of how majestic of the arts and architectures in the Angkor. I climbed up to the top of the Mon Tian (Highest peak) and I found nothing....only idols there. As I walk there The Lord gave me an impression of Hopelessness. I totally can't find any hope in this place indeed. So felt so disappointed. One reason is becuz' this place actually one of the place I want to visit since young...I heard so much about how beautiful and awesome it is....That's my 1st disappointment. The 2nd one is that The Cambodians called this place The Hope of The Nation but I found none....!!!!! That's really sad....I feel so sad for the Cambodians that their eyes are blind. My prayer as i walk in Angkor is that the lord will open their eyes to see the one true hope that is in Christ alone....Amen!
