“Because God is a person who loves, cares, is wise, and is in absolute control over everything – from the mundane to the monumental, from COVID-19 to a harmless cough – then we can have absolute comfort that God not only works all things together, but He is thoughtfully, lovingly, and caringly working all things together.”

Icebreaker:

In the midst of overwhelming fears, we look to our sovereign God, in whom
we find comfort in the midst of uncertainty
