Providence

The dictionary defines providence as the protective care of God or of nature as a spiritual power, timely preparation of future eventualities. Providence can also be defined as divine guidance or care. A third dictionary defines providence as God, especially when conceived as omnisciently directing the universe and the affairs of humankind with wise benevolence. A manifestation of divine care or direction, provident or prudent management of resources, prudence, foresight and provident care.

Whichever definition you prefer, the heart and intent is the same. GOD IS IN CONTROL. HE IS GOOD ALWAYS. HE HAS GOT YOU AND ME IN HIS LOVING, CAPABLE AND PERFECT HANDS. HIS PLANS ARE GOOD FOR US. WE HAVE PURPOSE AND LIVE WITH A PURPOSE. WE HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FUTURE AND INHERITANCE IN JESUS CHRIST. HIS TIMING IS PERFECT. All of my days are numbered and known by my Father. 

Providence to me means the God who is perfectly good, all knowing and wise who not only created the universe but is the One who also created, fashioned and formed me. He not only is able but is also willing to care and tend to my life because He alone sustains my life and He loves me. When I think of providence, I have the image of being surrounded. He goes before me into my future, He is behind me protecting me, He is in front of me presently leading me, and He is within me, His presence dwelling within me daily. 

I am covered. I am protected. I am hemmed in. I have a hedge of protection, a blessed (happy) life and a bright future because my Father in His providence sets all things into motion, sustains all things and fulfills all things. I can rest. I can breathe. My heart and mind can be at peace. I do not have to fear or worry. He's got this and He's got me. I will continue to walk with Him in fellowship, obedience and worship with praise of thanksgiving. It's really that simple, and God is really that good. 

Providence. 

God is provider. 
God is protector. 
God himself is provision. 
God is perfect. God is peace.
God is powerful.
