He saved you !

Sometimes I just need to yell in my ears to look at the evidence of God’s love for me, placarded before my eyes …


If he had not set his love upon me then things would be a lot worse … but he saved me !!!

So thank him and be joyful in the grace and forgiveness you have received !


When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin.

I was reading about God’s Providence today.

[Providence is] the unceasing activity of the Creator, whereby in overflowing bounty and goodwill (Psalm 159:9, c.f. Matthew 5:45-8), He upholds His creatures in ordered existence (Acts 17:28; Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 1:3), guides and governs all events, circumstances, and free acts of angels and men (Psalm 107, Job 1:12, 2:6; Genesis 45:5-8), and directs everything to its appointed goal, for His own glory (c.f. Ephesians 1:9-12).

God guides me by enabling me to read His providences through the lenses of His Word.

I have few greater pleasures than tracking the wonders of God’s ways.

“The greatness of God is a glorious and unsearchable mystery. It is the great support and solace of the saints in all the distresses that befall them here, that there is a wise Spirit sitting in all the wheels of motion, and governing the most eccentric creatures and their pernicious designs to blessed and happy issues.”
