The Providence of God in Your Life

January 13, 2021 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

We know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. —Romans 8:28

Do you know what it means that God’s Providence is at work in your life? Professor Dale Ralph Davis refers to it as “that frequently mysterious, always interesting way in which Yahweh provides for his servants in their various needs.”3 Start looking for God’s Providence, and you’ll see it everywhere!

God has a plan that cannot be thwarted by anything. He will deliver His people and ultimately fulfill all His purposes in this world. Even when you can’t see it, God is there. His work is hidden from our sight many times, but He is always acting on behalf of His people and His glory.

As we become familiar with the stories in the Bible, we’ll begin to marvel at the masterful way God orchestrates every detail—both of this universe and of our individual lives. When you cannot see the hand of God, trust His heart and know that His Providence is always working on your behalf.
