Mostly life does not conform to the straightforward plan that we map out for ourselves! Adversity and heartaches often strike in many different ways on many different fronts. Often these experiences rob us of peace of mind and indicate that trusting God is actually worked out in all areas of life—without boundaries! The goal then of this series is to refresh and rediscover the safe moorings we have in God. We will look at three particular aspects of God’s character which urge us on in perseverance as we trust God.
The titles for the three part series are as follows:
1. Trust God for He is completely sovereign
2. Trust God for He is infinite in wisdom
3. Trust God for He is perfect in love
The series main idea is: God in His love always wills what is best for us. In His wisdom He always knows what is best, and in His sovereignty He has the power to bring it about. Part of the sermon each week will be seeing the critical place that the Cross of Christ has in God’s sovereignty/wisdom/love. I’m convinced that Christians want to develop a deeper trust in God in all things, may our Heavenly Father grant us the mercy to do so.
A book that has been very helpful for this series is Jerry Bridges, Trusting God: Even when life hurts.
