Some Thoughts on Providence

It’s not unusual for men and women to ask whether there is any order and meaning in the chaotic world around us. Alistair Begg explains that the doctrine of the providence of God enables the Christian to offer a different perspective. All things are ordered by God for His glory, and because He is both powerful and good, we can find comfort and security in trusting His providence.

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.
