The path of Christian faith is marked with periods of stress, difficulty, pain, and disappointment. In Part One of this two-part message, Alistair Begg begins to examine some basic truths regarding God's providence. The believer is not a victim of fate or chance, but can be confident that the Lord is aware of the details of everyday life and is working all things out according to His divine plan.
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.
