132 All About Providence

In Episode 132, we talk about one of the most interesting doctrines in all of the scriptures. It comes in pretty much every single day of our lives. God's purpose is carried out through divine providence. Providence exists because God is concerned about the universe and all of its inhabitants. Throughout history, there have been many who have found immense consolation in the fact of providence.

It involves acknowledging that God has been there before in particular situations in life. It is proof that God has not abandoned this planet in the vastness of the cosmos or forgotten about the human condition. God comes before and between man and his wants by visiting, touching, communicating, controlling, and intervening. Thank goodness for Providence.
