"Wait on the Lord, and keep His way, and He shall exalt thee to inherit the land." Psalm 37:34
We talk about providence, but what is providence?
Providence means to see ahead of time and to make provision. This is what God does. He sees events before they ever get here and moves everything toward the goal He has in mind.
Now there is a lot of evil in the world, so don't get the idea that everything that happens is God's will. Rape is not God's will. Murder is not God's will. Racial hatred is not God's will. Adultery is not God's will. Sodomy is not God's will.
Man has a will and man has an evil heart. And in God's grand design, He gave man a free will. Even when man does evil, where God does not rule, God overrules.
Psalms 37. Find a brother or sister in the Lord and discuss the presence of evil in this world and the providence of God in the lives of His children.
