Sally Michael has written a primer on God's providence that is richly biblical and theological. This is a helpful resource for parents to introduce to their children God's constant watching and working in our world, and one that provides numerous opportunities for reflection and discussion. I heartily commend it.
Sally Michael has given her life to help children and parents trust the goodness and wisdom and strength of our sovereign God. I know of no one who has more steadfastly made the majesty and mercy of God more central in ministry to children and parents. We have worked side by side in this great calling. It has been a high privilege and joy for me. My heart soars with worship and joy and zeal as I page through Sally's new book, God's Providence. Here is the God I love and worship and trust. Here is absolute sovereignty and absolute goodness. Here is a foundation for life that is solid enough to sustain parents and children through the hardest times they will ever face. Here is Jesus dying and rising and reigning at the center of the greatest story in the universe. Here is a vision of God and his ways and his world that is worthy of his greatness. Here is biblical faithfulness rather than speculation. And here is practical application for children and those who love them enough to teach them. The book could have been subtitled: Learning to trust God. Isn't that what we want for our childrenthat they trust in God's sovereign love for them so deeply that they make it through fire and flood all the way to heaven, never wavering. Thank you, Sally, for pointing us so faithfully to this solid path.
