What happens just happens because it was meant to happen. People who believe in God’s providence never talk that way. They talk about God’s appointed designs and see themselves as willing to engage in a mission that simply can’t fail.
In the end God’s ordering of all things will make God look overwhelmingly glorious.
Do not fear. God repeats it. It is essential to our faith. But how many of us know that fear often motivates our behaviour?
For believers our joy is found in the beauty of God himself.
No matter what cost there is in following Jesus the doctrine of providence tells you that paying that cost was arranged for you by God, for your long term good. Be confident and believe.
God is preparing me today to maximize my eternal joy so that even the sorrows I face are used by him for that.
