We look around us in this world and see ruthless ambition, deception of heart, people laboring to accomplish all kinds of false purposes, in other words, we see a lot which appears contrary to the peace of society. But everything that we see is nothing more than just the surface of what really is. A higher counsel and power is overseeing the transactions of the world. If we at all believe in God’s governance of the universe, then we must believe that without his providence over us nothing happens. His good pleasures overrule our passions. He bends into subservience all of our designs. His decree will have its way with us.
