Food for thought from the English Language Dictionary © 1897:
Providence – “God’s Divine care, control and guidance over your life, situations and circumstances… making one ready for future events”
It was A. W. Tozer who said, "What you think about God is the most important thing you think." Knowing God--really knowing Him and who He is--calibrates all of life. He is the ultimate measurement because He is in control. When we see God as Creator, Maker, Redeemer, Judge, Consuming Fire, Sovereign King and the One who knows all things, we begin to practice His presence in our lives.
What comfort knowing He is in control, although sometimes we think we are, He still is.
