Providence Defined

Providence Defined

Are our lives determined by fate or chance? Did God create the universe and then step aside to watch history unfold from a distance? Alistair Begg challenges us to consider that according to the Bible, the details of our lives actually unfold within the providence of God. He is working in every circumstance – good and bad – for His glory. The Christian can take comfort in the knowledge that all of our days unfold in the care of our loving Father.

Intended For Good

A Study on God's Providential Care. Are we victims of chance, tossed about by circumstances beyond our control? Does God watch the unfolding events in our world from a distance, passive and inactive? Or can we find rest and hope in a God who is active and sovereign?

In this series, Alistair Begg introduces us to the doctrine of God’s providence. Here the Christian can find hope in the knowledge that the One who created and sustains us orders everything according to His will. Here we are challenged in the knowledge that God’s boundless sovereignty does not infringe upon our responsibility for the choices we make. Here we find comfort in the truth that God will ultimately use even wicked intentions and painful trials for His glory and the good of His people.

The awareness of God’s providence relieves us of both pride in our accomplishments and panic over uncertainty. In an increasingly unstable world, God’s people can rest securely in the providence of God, who faithfully pursues our good.
