IF GOD WILL
Today is Thursday. We had a good crowd of people out for our Mid-Week Service last night, and I'm expecting a great crowd out for tonight's soul-winning efforts. I believe we will have a great time! I have a good day planned out with a Prime Time with Pastor meeting at Lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory. It will be great to spend time with our seniors. Here is a thought for today:
IF GOD WILL- In Acts 18:21, it says: "But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus." Notice these verses too: 1 Corinthians 4:19 "But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power." and: James 4:15 "For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that." The apostles, Paul and James, knew that they were not to presume upon God's Will. They knew everything hinged upon God's Will. God has a will for our lives. God has a plan He is working out in our lives, in our families, in our church, in our community, in our town, in our city, in our county, in our state, in our region of the country, in our nation, in our hemisphere, in our world, in our universe..... He has a plan and our lives fit perfectly into it. If God will ought to be a regular part of our conversations. Anything that has to do with our plans for our lives ought to be tempered with... If God will.
Have a great day! Pastor Mike Mutchler
