Description

Because obeying God makes sense to us. In most cases, His laws appear reasonable and wise, and even when we don’t want to obey them, we usually concede that they are good for us. But the circumstances we find ourselves in often defy explanation.

When unexpected situations arise that appear unjust, irrational, or even dreadful, we feel confused and frustrated. And before long, we begin to doubt God’s concern for us or His control over our lives. Adversity is hard to endure and can even be harder to understand. If God were really in control, why would He allow the tragic auto accident or crucial job loss? How could He permit cancer in a loved one or the death of a child?

Grappling with His concern for us we ask, “Why is God allowing this?” or “What have I done wrong?” In an effort to strengthen his own trust in God during a time of adversity, Jerry Bridges began a lengthy Bible study on the topic of God’s sovereignty. What he learned changed his life, and he now shares the fruit of that study with you in Trusting God.

As you begin to explore the scope of God’s power over nations, nature, and the detailed lives of individuals, you’ll begin to acknowledge His loving control. And as you come to know Him better, you’ll find yourself trusting Him more completely—even when life hurts.

Interesting Study Of God’s Sovereignty
Trusting God by Jerry Bridges is not really the book I was expecting it to be. It has a heavy focus on the sovereignty of God in our everyday lives and nature, which leads us to trust more in God because he has everything under control.

I found it very interesting to delve into the goodness and sovereignty of God because it is not a topic that is discussed that often and certainly not to this depth. When you consider how great God is you have to wonder why we don’t trust Him completely.

The narration was not the best I have heard. I found it a bit slow and monotonous but it was still suitable to listen to with a bit of patience. It did take away from the quality of the book though, which was a pity.

The quality of the book is quite good and the subject is very interesting and thought provoking but the narration does make it a little hard to listen to at times.
