By Divine Providence

Recently, we preached from Psalm 18 and the book of Acts about how the Lord delivers us through divine intervention. At times in the Bible, the Lord delivered His people through miracles. But often He delivered through divine providence. Providence is God’s taking forethought to provide or protect through systems or natural means already established. This is how He works today.


We spent quite a bit of time showing how God protects believers in times of spiritual opposition through providence. But God also provides through divine providence. The Bibles that “every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights…” (James 1:17). Everything we receive that is morally upright and that is just what we need for the situation is from God.


It might be a material need that God provides at the right time; it might be a circumstance turning favorably toward you—at just the right time; it could be a spiritual conversation the Lord allows; it could be a decision that a third party makes, opening a door for you; the list goes on and on.


Jesus taught us that if your heavenly Father feeds the fowls of the air and clothes the lilies of the field, then He will care for you. Know this: God loves you. He watches out for you, and He provides for you by His providence.
