God’s Providence, God Keeps His Promises.

God’s Providence, God Keeps His Promises.


Another important thing we note when studying God’s Providence is: God Keeps His Promises.


Scripture makes several statements of God's faithfulness these demonstrates that God is still at work on behalf of His children today. They include the following: Matthew 6:33 (ESV) 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.


What must we do? – This is God’s Providence at work.


I heard a story of a young man who openly confessed his decision to be a Christian.


This decision sorely offended his father, who advised him, “Son, you should first get yourself established in a good job, and then think of the matter of religion.”


“Father,” said the son, “Jesus Christ advises me differently; He says, ‘Seek first the kingdom of God’


I would also refer you to the parable of the wedding feast Matthew 22:1-4; Luke 14:15-24.


Matthew 10:29–31 (ESV) 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.


Matthew 10 begins with a list of those who would serve. And ends with a statement that Jesus will not overlook deeds of kindness – those deeds of kindness would be looked at as if they were performed toward Jesus Christ.


Romans 8:28 (ESV) 28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.


In both of these passages we see God’s Forethought, careful oversight is expressed in these passages as our God of compassion, and lovely cares for each of us. God’s Providence.


1 Corinthians 10:13 (ESV) 13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.


Hebrews 13:5–6 (ESV) 5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” 6 So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”


Isaiah 7:14 (ESV) 14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.


God is with us. Do you see how both the name Lord is given to the Father and the name God is given to the Son?


In the psalm, the sacred writer said, “Let them know the Lord is His name.”


Here Isaiah says, “They shall call his name Immanuel.” God is with us.


John 14:16 (ESV) 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever,


John 14:26 (ESV) 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.


If God does not affect anything currently occurring in the world, these promises are all meaningless or false.


As we close, I want to leave you with these questions.


How is your spiritual journey progressing?


Are you where you desire to be at this point in your life?


If not why not?


A more important question is:


Are you where God desires you to be at this point in your life?


If not why not?
