“Resting in God’s sovereignty gives us peace because it helps us to accept the things we can’t control.”
In the following message, Pastor Brandon Brown asks, “Does Scripture give us anything to alleviate or take away our fears? Is there a Scriptural doctrine that can give us rock-solid unshakable peace and calm to get through any and all circumstances?” He answers those questions with a resounding yes! He then explains the Scriptural doctrine of the sovereignty of God and helps the listening believer understand how this doctrine gives us peace in even the worst of times.
The Coronavirus and the ensuing economic crisis have left many of us fearful, anxious, and feeling depressed. What we need at this time is a word of peace. Really, what we all need at this time is a right understanding of the sovereignty of God. In this sermon, Brandon rightly says, “Resting in God’s sovereignty gives us peace because it helps us to accept the things we can’t control.”
Yesterday, as I pulled into the hospital parking lot to have two of my children tested for the virus, I was glad that I had heard this message on Sunday. I was thankful that in God’s providence, the very day before, I had been reminded of the astonishing truths that God is sovereign and that He loves me.
I post this message here for anyone else that may need to experience the rock-solid unshakable peace that comes from knowing that God is in control.
