God Has a Plan? Are you Sure?
Pastor Jack continues to teach how the writer of Ecclesiastes wrestles with tough questions—questions we ask too. In Ecc. 3:16-4:16, we see that even faced with death, injustice, oppression, and similar hardships, God’s plans and purposes are not random or senseless, but neither are they always revealed to us like we desire. Be encouraged this week that God can accomplish His purposes outside of the paradigms we think are possible! Listen to “God Has a Plan? Are you Sure?”
