God in Control
A Sermon on Romans 8:28-30
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. (ESV)
Where is God when bad things are happening to us? Why are they happening to us? When the devil comes accusingly and harasses, “You say you're a child of God, but look at how things are going in your life!”, how are we to respond? In this sermon, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones continues his series on Romans 8:28-30, pastoring us through a myriad of troubles, explaining WHY they occur, how God uses them in the lives of His children, and how we can KNOW that all things truly are working together for our good. Sometimes we don't know what to pray for in our situations. However, “the Christian is one who can be certain about the ultimate even when he is most uncertain about the immediate.” Listen as he declares promise after promise from God’s Word and cites examples from church history which will encourage your soul to trust God in the midst of dark times. Because GOD is in control, we can be assured that even though we may not understand, we can still walk confidently, trusting that He IS working all things for our good.
