The General Providence of God

ursinus-portrait1.  The general providence of God is established by the following testimonies taken from the Word of God. “He does all things according to the counsel of His own will.” “He gives to all life, and breath, and all things.” “Has He said and shall He not do it; or has He spoken and shall He not make it good?” “You have made heaven, and earth, and all things that are therein, the seas and all that are therein, and You preserve them all.” “I form the light, and form darkness; I make peace and create evil. I the Lord do all these things.” (Ephesians 1:11; Acts 17:25; Numbers 23:19; Nehemiah 9:6; Isaiah 45:7)
