Westminster Shorter Catechism Question #11: What are God’s works of providence?
Answer: God’s works of providence are, his most holy, wise, and powerful preserving and governing all his creatures, and all their actions.
Psalm 145: 17
Psalm 104: 24
Isaiah 28: 29
Hebrews 1: 8
Psalm 103: 19
Matthew 10: 29 – 31
God’s works of providence means God’s intervention in the world or God’s action in the world. Simple put, God is with us and all of creation always. How amazing to know that God is with us always. God is with us through the good stuff as well as the bad stuff.
Preserving all his creatures and all their actions. This means helping to be made whole or to keep safe. If we listen!
Governing all his creatures and their actions. This does not mean the political government but governing as guiding. God is present to guide us on the path to love if we listen.
Prayer: Great God, we live in balance when we live in You. Today we give You all our irritations and frustrations. We live in Your presence in new and calm ways. We are made whole and balanced through Your great love for us. For this, we thank You. Amen.
