Look at God’s Providence& Grace

"In Him we were chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will, in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of His glory." --Ephesians 1:11,12

 

Our belief in God's wisdom supposes and necessitates that He has a settled purpose and plan in the work of salvation. What would creation have been without His design? Is there a fish in the sea, or a fowl in the air, which was left to chance for its formation?  No, in every bone, joint, and muscle, sinew, gland, and blood-vessel, you mark the presence of a God working everything according to the design of infinite wisdom.

And shall God be present in creation, ruling over all, and not in grace?

Shall the new creation have the capricious genius of free will to preside over it when divine counsel rules the old creation?

Look at Providence!  

  • Who know not that not a sparrow falls to the ground without your Father?  
  • Even the hairs of your head are all numbered.
  • God weighs the mountains of our grief in scales, and the hills of our tribulation in balances.

And shall there be a God in providence and not in grace?

Shall the shell be ordained by wisdom and the kernel be left to blind chance. No; He knows the end from the beginning. He sees in its appointed place, not merely the corner-stone which He has laid in fair colours, in the blood of His dear Son, but He beholds in their ordained position each of the chosen stones taken out of the quarry of nature, and polished by His grace; He sees the whole from corner to cornice, from base to roof, from foundation to pinnacle. He hath in His mind a clear knowledge of every stone which shall be laid in its prepared space, and how vast the edifice shall be, and when the top-stone shall be brought forth with shoutings of "Grace! Grace!  unto it." At the last it shall be clearly seen that in every chosen vessel of mercy, Jehovah did as He willed with His own; and that in every part of the work of grace He accomplished His purpose, and glorified His own name.

 

Prayer: Father, thank for your Providence and your Grace.  May always be glorified through us.  Amen

 
Stay Blessed!
