Weekly message straight from Pastor Dickie Spargo to you!

When we go through difficulties in life, the first thing we often try to do is blame somebody else. But it doesn’t matter where your problem came from — God still has a purpose for it in your life. Even when you do stupid things, God can use it. Even when other people hurt you intentionally, he can use it. Even when the Devil plans bad things for your life, God can bring good out of it.

When we experience setbacks, our most common response is our worst response: We want to withdraw, to build a wall around ourselves, to push people away.

But that’s the last thing we should do.

Hurry creates worry. Matthew 6:34 says, “Don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own”.

There are two days you should never worry about: yesterday and tomorrow!

You have just enough time to do whatever God has called you to do in life. Every one of us has 168 hours every single week. Your ability to do what God has called you to do depends upon how you use those hours.
