Good Father Message Series, Sundays at Living Creek, November 5 – December 3
Have you ever had a day where nothing seems to go right? In the middle of our frustrations and set-backs it is hard to have an attitude of gratitude. Maybe for you, it has been a lot longer than just a day of challenges, maybe it has existed for weeks, or even years.
When we are enduring a season where things don’t seem to be going as planned, it is also easy to blame God. It is all his fault, or so we think. We say this because if God didn’t cause the evil in our lives, at least he allowed the evil to exist which threatens our ability to be thankful.
November is our month of Thanksgiving. Regardless of your situation at this point in 2017, God is still giving us reasons to give thanks. The Good Father series is a study of the life of setbacks experienced by Joseph in the book of Genesis. He was sold into slave trafficking by his older brothers. He was falsely charged for rape. He was forgotten and left in prison. And when he confronted his brothers years later he said, “What you intended for evil, God turned into Good!”
It is our prayer at Living Creek, that no matter what setback we are facing, we can encourage each other to anticipate how God has been faithful, and turning the evil in our lives into good. In the worst of times, God is still good.
We invite you to join us at Living Creek, worshipping at Rich South High School Auditorium, Richton Park, IL, Sundays at 8:30 and 10:00 am.
