A Word From The Pastor

“God Knows Best”

Bill Hayden, Pastor, Villages Chapel
Date Published: 
Friday, November 20, 2020

     You may say that you believe in God as long as things happen the way that you think they should. When it doesn’t work out according to what you hoped for, then What? Do you stop believing or start blaming God, or others for what happened or didn’t happen?

     Life is an ongoing adventure because our plans sometimes seem to turn in a different direction. For example, you probably have a navigational system on your cell phone or car to locate a point of interest. It may include several roads, the number of miles and the time to reach your destination. Your navigational system may not tell you there are pot holes ahead or for the next five miles you will be entering a hail storm and to prepare for a detour.

     Sometimes events that appear to go awry and spiral out of our control can be the best thing to get us back on track in achieving our goal. Our first response is usually to blame it on something or someone rather than thanking God for His providence and the gift of life. From your perspective you can’t comprehend how or why this is happening to you. The answer may not be forthcoming but if we stay open minded the answer will become crystal clear after we have stopped blaming and complaining.

     What we often fail to understand is that God is constantly at work in the good, the bad and the ugly things that happen in life to lead us to trust in His wisdom. So, if we know that He will bring good out of our unfortunate experiences why worry, blame or complain about His methods.

     Have you ever looked at a situation that you were fearful about because you imaged the worst scenario and allowed your mind to run away with fear? Finally, in the end when it turns in your favor you will feel like a ton of bricks were lifted off your shoulders and you wondered why you ever worried so much.   

     Psalms 37:5 NKJV Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.”

     "GOOD NEWS!  Join us each week at 10 a.m., Pastor Bill will deliver his Sunday Morning Sermon Message on video. You can experience his sermon via our Villages Community Website:

     May God bless all of you with good health!
