Pain and disappointment are not unusual experiences to the Christian, despite what some might have us believe. The issue is not whether we will face difficulties, but rather how we will respond when they come. This is also a series #22301. Verse 15 of Psalm 31 reads, "My times are in your hands." These six words are the affirmation of the person who knows himself to be, despite disasters and difficulties, under the care of Almighty God. It is this certainty that will bring equilibrium to us in the span of events that would inflate our egos or crush our souls. In this booklet Alistair Begg considers the implications this phrase has for believers. If our times are in His hands, then: We are not trapped by blind forces. We are not being tossed about on the ocean of chance. We are being trained in the school of God's providence. Prosperity should not be the occasion of pride. Uncertainty should not be the occasion of panic. Adversity must not become the occasion of self-pity. There is a responsibility to be faced. Humility must be fostered. There is a security to be found. My Times Are in God's Hands will prove to be a useful tool in helping today's Christian understand what it really means to be cared for by the Lord.
