Most of the book explores Godâ€™s sovereignty since so many Christians today are unfamiliar with the term and the concept. Bridges carefully shows the extent of Godâ€™s control over this planet and each of our lives. If you are unfamiliar with the Bibleâ€™s witness to Godâ€™s sovereignty you will be amazed at the number of Bible verses and passages that are examined.
Godâ€™s rule over all things gives His children hope. God knows what He is doing, and this circumstance is not out of His control. Jerry Bridges explains, â€œThere is no agonizing by God, no hoping He has made the right decision, no wondering what is really best for us. God makes no mistakes.â€ (pg. 126)
After exploring the three themes of Godâ€™s sovereignty, wisdom and love, Bridges deals with how we can apply these Bible truths to our lives. The authorâ€™s great confidence in God, by the end of the book, becomes infectious….
Bridges shares his heart in this book. It doesnâ€™t appear to have been an easy one for him to write. You can tell heâ€™s been through a lot personally and has shared the grief of many who have suffered even more. His personal accounts and illustrations add life to the book. His openness about his sin and failures to trust God is inspiring. He writes with an earnestness and confidence that can only be accompanied by prayers for those of us who would read this important book.
I encourage you to take advantage of this great deal and pick up the free audio download of Trusting God.
