A Word From The Pastor

What Do We Really Need?

Senior Pastor Bill Hayden
Date Published: 
Thursday, July 6, 2017

When things go awry we seldom say, “This is a good thing!” We don’t always look on the brightside of things when we can’t find a rational reason why it went wrong. It can be very frustrating when you are doing what you think is the right for the best results. If everything was done according to only what we thought, it may not be in our best interest. Sometimes we need to consider, with a multitude of counselors comes wisdom; however, it may not be the wisdom of God!

There are times when it’s clear that we made the right decision based upon research and facts we have gathered. Well, sad to say, we are not all knowing, there is a lot to consider especially when it comes to the fallibility of human nature. When we receive, what we thought would satisfy our need, we then realize it was not what we thought we needed. We look at other people and sometimes we covet what they have and we may work tirelessly in pursuit of it. The harder we work at acquiring whatever it is, the more it sometimes eludes us because in God’s wisdom achieving it could be detrimental to our life and perhaps others. So, let’s not be frustrated with what we think or perceive a better opportunity, but consider what God has planned for us in our best interest.

My anchor and resolve is in this: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 New King James Version (NKJV)

Come and meet us Sunday at the Villages Community Chapel in Cribari Auditorium at 10 a.m. to be encouraged. The chapel is a place for needs to be met, faith to be affirmed and people to love. Coffee and refreshments will follow our service time. Please join us and we’ll hold a door for you. See you this Sunday!
