Wisdom Through Suffering – Dr. R.C. Sproul

Posted By on April 11, 2013

“We tend to be able to see the hand of providence in our lives when we pray for something and God says “Yes.” But isn’t it amazing when we want something and we want it desperately and we pray about it intensely and the answer is, “No” what happens? We begin to doubt if there even is a god. So that the “no” response from God is negative in our lives whereas the “yes” response affirms our faith. The author here is saying, “If you want to be wise, you consider both” because God’s hand is as sovereignly in the “no” as it is in the “yes”. And God is displaying his hand as much in the tragedy as he is in prosperity. His sovereign rule is manifested.”

Both should build our faith.
