There ae six principles that are basic to the concept of the sovereignty of God in providence that run all the way through the Word of God and under gird its message of salvation. 1. God has a definite plan and purpose for the world. 2. God is always in control of all things and is constantly at work in accomplishing his plan. 3. God controls and uses everyone, even the Devil, in working out his plan. 4. God punishes the people that he uses to accomplish his purposes when they act out of wrong motives. 5. All things are from God, but the devil is the agent of all evil. 6. Although all sickness and affliction are part of God's purpose and under his sovereign control, it does not follow that all sickness and affliction are necessarily chastisement for sin. It is essential to understand and believe these six principles in order to have a biblical understanding of either God himself or the theology of his sovereign grace. Grasping and applying these truths to your every day life is the foundation of biblical hope that leads to true joy in the Lord. It is difficult to have a reasonable, hopeful sense of security and heartfelt assurance while lving in our present-day, crazy world without a knowledge and appreciation of the sovereignty of God in providence embodied in these six biblical truths. Do you understand the message of hope and grace that is set forth in the Word of God, or do you have trouble putting it all together into one coherent system? Can you relate the truths of the Bible to your everyday life, or do the doctrines of Scripture seem unrelated to the real life situations of your personal world today? This booklet is written for the express purpose of giving you clear and specific help in these two areas. It is designed to help you understand what the Bible really says and means, and to apply that message to the real life situations you must face in your personal world.
