All Things for Good, Part 1
Romans 8:28-29
October 18, 2020
Pastor Rich Lanning

 

Introduction:

I.    What is providence?
      A. Defined:

 

      B. God the Sustainer. Col. 1:17, Heb. 1:3, Neh. 9:6, Ps. 145:16, 125:2, 121:3-4.

 


      C. God rules over all. Ps. 115:3, Pro. 21:1, Ps. 135:6-7, Matt. 10:29, Pro. 16:9, 33,
          Daniel 2:44.

 


II. The crisis of providence today.

 

 

 

III. Two qualifications:


      A. The ‘good’ has God’s people in view. Romans 8:28, Jer. 30:11, Gen. 47:27,                  

 

      B. What is ‘the good’? Romans 8:29

 

 

 

 

   Questions for reflection:


        • What is biblical providence?
        • How can we “know that . . . all things work together for good?”
        • What comfort is there is being assured of God’s providence?
