Providence of God

What Is Providence? – God’s work among men through natural means. Different than miracles – supernatural.

Examples of God’s Providence

  • Joseph in Egypt – Genesis 45:1-8
  • Good and bad times in Israel – Deuteronomy 28
  • Kingdoms of men – Daniel 2:31-45
  • Crucifixion – Acts 2:23
  • Church – Ephesians 3:10-11
  • Preservation of the Bible, the seed of the church – Luke 8:11

Providence in Our Lives – Matthew 6:25-33; James 1:17

How Should This Affect Us? – Esther 4:14

  • We may not be certain what is providence and what is chance – “who knows”
  • We should use every opportunity to serve God
  • God’s plans will not be thwarted by the actions/inactions of men
  • We will be judged according to our ability/opportunity
