Are we hapless victims of life's whims? Are we driven along by some blind and impersonal force? Are we battered by circumstances beyond all control?A thousand times. "No!" says pastor and author Alistair Begg. Instead, Begg says we are the objects of God's providential care. We reside under His guiding and protecting hand. It's an amazing and comforting fact:God rules and overrulesin the circumstances of life.He is neither a capricious nor a vindicitive authority. Quite the contrary. God works through the circumstances of life to bring about something miraculous--something abundantly good--even out of what we perceive to be our darkest moments.So, take comfort, weary traveler, and read on. Soon, you'll pack up the baggage of your past, the fears of your present, and the prospect of your future--and entrust them all into the hand of the God who cares. In The Hand of God, pastor and author Alistair Begg asserts that if Romans 8:28 were to come to life, the picture we would see would be Joseph. In all the twist and turns of life, the uncertainties and the mysteries, God's hand of providence is always at work. The hand of God was working in Joseph's life, moving and shaping him and circumstances so that Joseph was positioned to save his people from annihilation and preserve the Messianic line that would one day culminate in the birth of Christ. Be awakened to God's providence. He is always at work in our lives, whether we acknowledge it or not. Refresh your sense of awe and appreciation for how powerful our God is with The Hand of God.
Readers will see God at work, shaping Joseph's life and circumstances so that he can ultimately redeem and reconcile his family. And they'll see the hand of God in their lives, lovingly guiding them through their disappointments and struggles to a place of peace.
