God Is In Control of Everything and Allows Everything That Happens – Including Calamities

The doctrine of sovereignty is that God is in control of everything.  When calamity strikes we must remember that God is allowing that to happen.  Calamity is not sin but just a thing that God is allowing in our life for our good.


Segment 1 (0:00) – God is in control of everything and allows everything that happens, including calamities.  As Christians, we need to be reminded that everything that happens to us in our life is allowed by God.

Segment 2 (9:50) – God allows sinful things to happen but never causes them.  Since God owns everything, it is not sinful for him to take a life or destroy something.  We must always remember the doctrine of sovereignty, if we don’t we won’t understand why bad things happen.  God is in control of everything.  Everything that God does for us, he does for our own good.

Segment 3 (17:14) – Everything that God does for us, he does for our own good.  God is more concerned about our holiness than our happiness.
