That the counsels and decrees of God are the spring and original of all events … his appointments are the originals and his performances are but copies from them; he does all according to the counsel of his will.

That all the instruments of Providence, and all the events of it, come from God. … They stand before him as the Lord of the whole earth, to receive orders from him and give up their accounts to him concerning their services on this earth, for it is all within his jurisdiction. But, when he appoints, they go forth as messengers of his counsels and ministers of his justice and mercy. …

That God is well-pleased with all the operations of his own providence.
