To be a husband and father,and to be a Christian means that I am truly a blessed man. Then, if God's blessings could get no greater, He has called me to be the Pastor of Millgrove Bible Baptist Church, a place where I have truly seen God doing a great work in hearts and lives. This a church that loves Bible preaching, Christ honoring music, and people. If you love those things as well, we would love to have you come and join us as we worship our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.
Committed to Christ,
Pastor David A. Voorhees
Giving thanks always for things unto God and the Father
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Sometimes we find the trials and tests of life to be hard and overwhelming; but there is hope. When we are trying to deal with the difficult things on our own we will not be able to thank God for all things all the time.
How do we thank God for the difficult things of life? Another question is this; Should we thank God for these difficulties? The answer is yes, and this is due to the fact that the Bible commands it. We also need to think of another verse that relates to this verse.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.
We need to realize that God is working through all of our circumstances, and that He is working them out for our good and His glory. As God is working in and through them, we will become more like His precious Son. This includes the difficult times and things that we do not understand.
So, when we understand and know that our Father in Heaven is working all things for our good and His Glory, it is then that we can thank God for all things all the time. God knows all of our troubles, tests, and trials, and we can thank Him for them because He is in control. When we come through these things by God's grace our faith will become stronger, and God's glory will be brighter.
So we should not run from God, but instead we need to keep our eyes on Christ seeking to honor Him all the time for all things.
