FROM THE PASTOR ..

Thankful

When all you have is 5 loaves and 2 fish and you see a crowd in need of dinner, it might seem difficult to express thanks. But Jesus knew that His heavenly Father would supply their needs. So He gave thanks. (John 6:11) Then the disciples took the loaves and fish out to feed 5000 men plus women and children. It was an amazing miracle! God still performs miracles.

A few years after beginning his life’s work in orphanage ministry in 19th century Bristol, England George Muller became ill and turned to the scriptures. While reading Psalm 68 he was touched by the phrase, “Father to the fatherless.” Basil Miller writes, “From then on the burdens were not his but the Lord’s…During June God tested his faith by suddenly shutting off the gifts which had so abundantly flowed in. Muller took the matter to the Lord.” He prayed over the words in Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” George sensed the unchanging nature of God and felt joy come into his soul. Moments later an envelope in the mail arrived with a 20 pound bill, reminding the man of faith that God would supply his needs.

God is supplying our needs. We hear his promise, “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19) We can always be thankful for all He’s done, and all He will do. Let’s be thankful together
