THE PROVIDENCE OF GOD

February 11, 2012
THE PROVIDENCE OF GODProvidence (Latin = providere – pro = beforehand + videre = to see) God SEES beforehand, but He also PROVIDES. Providence is God’s gracious oversight of the universe! Divine providence is the basis for the truth “that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” (Ro 8:28-Note) “The mind of man plans his way, but the LORD directs his steps.” (Pr 16:9-Note by Wm Arnot)
 
Happy the man who sees a God employed in all the good and ill that chequers life. – William Cowper
 
God is to be trusted when his providences seem to run contrary to his promises. – Thomas Watson
 
God rules and overrules. – William S. Plumer
 
The mystery of providence defies our attempt to tame it by reason. I do not mean it is illogical; I mean that we do not know enough about it to be able to unpack it. – D. A. Carson
 
Our spirits are most satisfied when we discern God’s aim in everything. – Thomas Manton
 
If our circumstances find us in God, we shall find God in our circumstances. – George Muller
 
While providence supports,
Let saints securely dwell;
That hand which bears all nature up
Shall guide his children well.
     -Philip Doddridge
 
His providence unfolds the book,
And makes His counsels shine;
Each opening leaf, and every stroke
Fulfills some deep design.
    -Isaac Watts
 
PRAYER: Almighty God in Heaven increase our faith so that we might trust that You are working ALL THINGS after the counsel of Your will, upholding ALL THINGS by the word of Your power, holding ALL THINGS together in Christ so that in ALL the circumstances of our life we might be more than conquerors, confident that NOTHING can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen (Mk 9:24, Eph 1:11, Heb 1:3, Col 1:17, Ro 8:37, 39)

    This website along with the articles posted are surely performed/given in a spirit of excellence. I’m so grateful to God. He equips His servants with a burden to minister to God’s people so they may be encouraged, empowered and enlighten by the Word of God. Truly a labor of love. Blessings.
