In our continuing effort to reach our community and surrounding areas with the Gospel and love of Jesus, we participated in the Manchester parade last weekend.

Unexpectedly, we received a call that our Noah's Ark placed First in Show and the Manchester Fire Department will be providing Dover Assembly of God with a check in the amount of $250, which we will use for our next outreach! (A special 'thank you' to Todd Blanchard for 'building the ark'!)

Thank you for helping us be Jesus' hand extended to the Dover Community! Boxes for coats will be placed in the upper and lower foyers. (if anyone attending our church is in a financial need of a winter coat, please see Pastor Jeff or Anna)

We started last week talking about the temptation that will come to us when difficulties come our way.
The enemy will show you many options that will appear to give us the easy way out, but always ends badly for us.
Since God is good and he gives us all the good things we need, we should not look anywhere else to have those things provided.
“It is better to be hungry in the will of God than be full outside the will of God.” ~ Warren Wiersbe
There are 4 attributes of God’s goodness:

I. GOD ONLY GIVES GOOD GIFTS.
Everything good in this world is from God. If it is not from God, it is not good. If it comes from God, it must be good.
...even if we think it isn’t or don’t see it immediately.
It is sometimes through the hardships and troubles that we learn our best lessons.
II. THE WAY GOD GIVES THE GIFTS IS GOOD
When God gives us a gift, He always does it in a loving way.
What He gives and how He gives it are both good.
The phrase "come down" means "keeps on coming"

God continually gives to us...

Everyday you wake up, every meal you eat, etc...
If we remember His goodness, we won’t give in to the enemy’s temptations.
Last week we focused on the first barrier against temptation. That is the judgment of God.

This week we focused on the 2nd barrier-the goodness of God.

Both have to be kept in balance when we are tempted.
He realized that all his blessings were not because of Pharaoh, but ultimately because God did it.
The next time you are tempted, think about God’s goodness and wait on God to provide it for you.
The quickest way to deceive ourselves is to not listen to what God’s word tells us.
A mature Christian is able to look at himself and determine where he needs help and then where to go in God’s word for that help.
You need to evaluate what you hear and then do it. Are you hearing something over and over again in your lives but not doing anything about it?
How do we listen to God’s word? Do we have a preconceived notion of what it may be saying so we don’t look at it objectively to see what it REALLY means?
If your spiritual life is decaying and you are being disobedient in any area, you are never going to grow.

Thanks for joining us!
