God’s Sovereignty in the Midst of Suffering

Brody Holloway | Genesis 50 | SWO20 Monday Night

If we truly live a life submitted to Jesus, people around us won’t understand why we make the decisions that we do. They won’t understand the hope we have that looks past what’s happening right now.

We can have confidence that God is sovereign. He is control of every situation! There will be times when we can’t understand what He’s doing, but we know that He is for us.

Just like in Joseph’s life, God’s will might be for us to suffer. Persecution and suffering often show the glory of the Gospel more clearly than anything else.

“As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.” (Genesis 50:20)
