Overview

God is the Creator of every living thing. And He is in control of it all, down to the tiniest detail – your lifespan, the number of hairs on your head, and even when a sparrow falls to the ground. That is a very comforting thought if you understand the sovereignty of God.

But when tragedies happen or when wickedness seems to triumph, we often ask, “Where is God? Why did He let this happen?”

In If God is in Control, Why is My Life Such a Mess?, author, scholar, and teacher Michael Youssef shows you that you are not alone. Even such biblical greats as Elijah and Esther struggled. Through examples from their lives and his own battles, Youssef illustrates why bad things happen to good people and how you can step back and see the big picture of how God is working in your life and in the world.

Most of all, you will discover that God’s battle-weary believers can experience His tender compassion – and that you can trust God for a good resolution to a bad situation.
