Discerning the Will of God (August 31, 2011)

The Plans of God: How does the sovereignty of God manifest itself in our daily existence? The decrees of God. 

 

  1. A Definition: GOD from all eternity did, by the most wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely and unchangeably ordain whatsoever comes to pass (Eph. 1:11; Rom. 11:33; Heb. 6:17; Rom. 9:15,18): yet so, as thereby neither is God the author of sin,(James 1:13,17; 1 John 1:5) nor is violence offered to the will of the creatures, nor is the liberty or contingency of second causes taken away, but rather established.( Acts 2:23; Matt. 17:12; Acts 4:27,28; John 19:11; Prov. 16:33).

  2. An Explanation: God has a specific purpose and plan for the universe and specifically, for his people. Think through that theological truth today. God has specific plans and is carrying them out for his glory and our good.
