From its title, you wouldn¿t think this book is mainly about the sovereignty of God. But understanding God¿s sovereignty is truly the best way to handle hard times.

Bridges presents three reasons why we can trust God:

1. God is omniscient, so He knows what is best for us.
2. God is sovereign, so He is able to bring about what is best for us.
3. God is love, so He wants us to have what is best for us.

Accepting these three truths provide a three-cord strand about God that one can and onto in hard times.

But the problem is, accepting the second reason is difficult for many. Our natural minds rebel against the idea of God being in control of events, including ¿bad¿ things that happen. But Bridges present many Scripture verses supporting the Biblical teaching of God¿s absolute sovereignty. In fact, this book was the source for many of the verses I reference in the chapter on ¿The Sovereignty of God¿ in my book Scripture Workbook: For Personal Bible Study and Teaching the Bible.

Bridge¿s book is one of the best books I have ever read. I would highly recommend it for the person going through hard times. There is no better way to deal with problems in life than by understanding that God is in control. For that matter, get it even if your life isn¿t currently ¿hurting.¿ Coming to understand God¿s absolute sovereignty will prepare you for when the inevitable hard times hit. And consult my book for even more Scriptural proof of God¿s sovereignty in all matters of life.
