God's Providence

"God's providence is His constant care for and His absolute rule over all His creation, directing all things to their appointed end for His glory and for the good of His people."
The truth of God's providence is a wonderful comfort to His elect, but an intolerable mystery to those who are counted among His enemies.

"He works in providence by an unseen hand. He works through what we call secondary causes--the actions of people and other living creatures, as well as the so-called laws of nature. God often governs His universe through unwitting and even unwilling instruments."

Quotes from: I Exalt You O God, by Jerry Bridges
