Are we still to say that God is ruling in those situations? To what extent is God’s involvement in this world limited by human free will? Listen in as we consider these questions together from the book of Daniel.

God’s Survival Manual Vol 3: 1 of 2: When the crisis hits

Daniel‭ ‬3:19-30‭ Fear of the future can hold us back socially,‭ ‬professionally,‭ ‬and most importantly,‭ ‬spiritually.‭ ‬The Bible describes how the Israelites ended up wandering around the desert for‭ ‬40‭ ‬years because they were driven by risk avoidance.‭ ‬Come and hear how we can make progress in living courageously and therefore productively for God.

Daniel 3:1-18 William Wilberforce campaigned for most of his adult life, often against violent opposition, to end the British slave-trade.
