Providence

13 Mar

God’s providence stands over and above our actions. He works out His will through the actions of human wills, without violating the freedom of those human wills."

God’s redemptive providence is always at work, even through the most diabolical schemes and actions. Classic illustration? The betrayal of Jesus Christ by Judas. Strange as it may seem, Judas’s worst act of wickedness helped to bring about the best thing that ever happened: the Atonement.

Nothing touches us that has not first passed through His hands.
