Providence (PDF Download)
"The Christian believes God to be too wise to err and too good to be unkind! He trusts Him where he cannot trace Him. He looks up to Him in the darkest hour, and believes that all is well." —C.H. Spurgeon
Providence means that God wisely preserves and rules over His entire creation. But while this doctrine carries sweet comfort to the believer, it can stir-up some bitter questions. Where is God's hand when tragedy strikes? Why should we pray to God if He has already made up His mind? Are we only puppets on a stage, strung along by fate?
The authors in this booklet ask those very questions, and find the answers straight from the Word of a most wise, good, and loving God.
