In This Episode: Series 1, Episode 6 – The Sovereignty of God

In this episode, our guests share their stories of encounters of God – from the Swiss Alps to the market, to the kitchen, to the great outdoors. As we listen to the personal, candid accounts of how God has brought peace and love, we reflect on how our trust in Him as the supreme authority reassures us that all things are under His control.  Today’s guests tell us about their experiences of the supernatural, challenging us to acknowledge that faith is being certain of what you cannot see. Having faith and trust in God’s love, kindness and ability to keep His promises, helps us to grow our faith, and of course, faith needs to be exercised to grow.
