    More Sermon Details:   
    The providence of God not only works in the selection of governmental leaders, including the worst of ones such as Nebuchadnezzar, but also in the happenings of nature. What happens is never the fault of "Mother Nature" but an event in the plan of Father God. This includes such tragedies as Hurricane Katrina, the tsunami on the west coast of Indonesia and most recently the cyclone to hit in Myanmar. There is nothing that happens by chance, even the outcome of the roll of the dice. Everything, every event is under the control of God.

    We cannot understand God's infinite purposes with our finite minds. He alone is all-knowing, all-powerful with a perfect plan to accomplish His purposes. We do have a human responsibility and accountability, while living under His sovereign will and authority God.

    We should be moved with compassion when tragedies take place but we must have a proper perspective about tragedies. The God who created everything continues to be active in His Creation. He sustains it, directs it, and controls it. The Father and the Son are involved in the Creation. The Deist position that the Creation goes on by the working of natural laws without Christ's involvement is not biblical. The Scriptures from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21 speak of His personal and direct involvement. Such is our comfort and confidence in times such as these if the Creator Christ is our personal Lord and Savior!
