There will be times in your life where you feel like God doesn't have a plan, and it's all chaos, out of control. Here's the truth: God has a definite plan. He knows what tomorrow has for you, even if he doesn't tell you. Christians don't avoid all suffering, but with Jesus, we can endure any suffering. Most of our life is living by faith, and once in while we get to look back and see the definite plan. God is good, God is sovereign, and God is bigger than sin. He uses evil for good, and though he's not the author of it, he's the ruler over it. He has a definite plan, he knows the future, and you can trust him.
This clip is excerpted from the sermon "Jesus Gives Life," part 1 of our new summer sermon series, Jesus Loves His Church. It was preached by Pastor Mark Driscoll out of Acts 1:1--11 and 2:22--41 at Mars Hill Downtown Bellevue and released online on June 24.
