Providence is a great theological word and sometimes forgotten. It reminds us of God's intervention in the world. Put simply, it is the divine guidance or care displayed by the Almighty God. We see clearly that there is a amazing narrative unfolding throughout the pages of Scripture. It is true that God's plan for the world and every soul that he has created is guided by his will, or providence. You will be blessed to read the following blog entry by Kevin DeYoung that outlines God's providence in the Old Testament.
You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told (Psalm 40:5).
