Weekly message straight from Pastor Dickie Spargo to you!

It is not God’s job to make every moment of our life easy. If he did, we would never grow up!

We would probably be immature, spoiled, and incredibly self-centered. That is not what God wants for us!!

So when you’re in pain and you pray and don’t see the answers, should you give up? No!

God wants to work in your life in 2019! But how will He do that? Paul laid it out for us.

Paul knew that God works in our lives according to our expectation. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 1:9b-10, “This happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us…and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us”.

The purpose of the dead end is to teach you to trust in God. Why does God let things get so bad and so out of control? So he can force you to learn to trust in him instead of trusting in your own ingenuity and cleverness.

Tammy and I pray that you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year with family and friends.

As we begin a new year, I wanted to share with you something that the Lord has been saying to me about 2019 — and I hope it will uplift your faith and encourage your heart as it has mine.

Can you believe that 2019 is almost here??

I want to personally thank you for giving and believing in Bethlehem Church- The Best is Yet to Come!
