There is a certain security that results from trusting in God's providence, knowing that He can use even our failures for His glory and our good. Alistair Begg says that in recognizing this, the believer can face death with composure, celebrate life to the fullest, deal with disappointment without losing hope, and rest in God's unfailing goodness.
My Times Are In Your Hands
A great disservice has been done to the cause of Christ by those who have tended to suggest that Christianity is all brightness and laughter. Such a perspective is neither true to the biblical record, nor to the human experience. The joy of which the Bible speaks is not found in isolation from the rigors of life. James encourages us to "count it all joy" when we face trials of various kinds. The studies contained in this album make it very clear that Christians grieve, too. They, also, seek to provide a biblical framework for dealing with affliction, trial, and disappointment. Underpinning it all is the doctrine of God’s providence, which affords the believer the opportunity to rest in the awareness that our times are in His hands. This album may well prove to be a great help to friends and neighbors who are trying to make sense of some of life’s storms.
