God’s providence not only governs all things, but it gives us hope in our suffering. We can trust that our all-good God will turn every sorrow to joy.
The doctrine of God’s providence is the theme of Pastor John’s new book by that title, ‘Providence.’ The truth that God governs over everything he makes is gloriously true. And when we see it and embrace it as true and glorious, this doctrine can make a very deep and definite impact on how we live, especially when suffering hits. So we are celebrating the implications on Wednesdays on the podcast. There are a total of ten implications Pastor John wants to address. Last time, in episode 1586, we looked at how embracing the providence of God “enables us to be patient and faithful in the long, dragged-out, often unexpected trials of life, amidst the most inexplicable circumstances, detours, and delays that, from our limited viewpoint, make no sense.” Providence makes us patient in trials. That was implication number five. Here now with implication number six is Pastor John.
