In the Heidelberg Catechism, the question is asked:
What dost thou mean by the providence of God?
The following answer is given:
The almighty and everywhere present power of God; whereby, as it were by his hand, he upholds and governs heaven, earth, and all creatures; so that herbs and grass, rain and drought, fruitful and barren years, meat and drink, health and sickness, riches and poverty, yea, and all things come, not by chance, but be his fatherly hand.
There is nothing in our lives that comes to us by chance—it is all from His fatherly hand. We can place all of our care into His sovereign, loving, gracious and fatherly hands. Amazing!
Spurgeon brings us through today’s Morning and Evening to want more than anything to find ourselves in the all powerful hands of God. I hope this encourages all of us on this day. There used to be the slogan for AllState Insurance,
You’re in good hands with AllState.
We as Christians are found in the most powerful, loving, and faithful hands imaginable…now that is the kind of insurance…rather assurance…that each of us needs today.
