Hi my friends, today let’s look at some more Scripture about the PROVIDENCE OF GOD.
King James Version (KJV)
14 In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which the Lord taketh shall come according to the families thereof; and the family which the Lord shall take shall come by households; and the household which the Lord shall take shall come man by man.
New International Version 33 The lot is cast into the lap,
but its every decision is from the Lord.
King James Version 26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
[ other references, 1 Sam.6:7-10; Isaiah 44:7 ] IN THESE VERSES WE SEE THE PROVIDENCE OF GOD IN HIS DIRECTION OF EVENTS!
Holman Christian Standard Bible 9 The windstorm comes from its chamber,
and the cold from the driving north winds.
10 Ice is formed by the breath of God,
and watery expanses are frozen.
11 He saturates clouds with moisture;
He scatters His lightning through them.
12 They swirl about,
turning round and round at His direction,
accomplishing everything He commands them
over the surface of the inhabited world.
13 He causes this to happen for punishment,
for His land, or for His faithful love.
Why was no one there when I came?
Why was there no one to answer when I called?
Is My hand too short to redeem?
Or do I have no power to deliver?
Look, I dry up the sea by My rebuke;
I turn the rivers into a wilderness;
their fish rot because of lack of water
and die of thirst.
Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
4 Life was in Him,[a]
and that life was the light of men.
15 (John testified concerning Him and exclaimed,
“This was the One of whom I said,
‘The One coming after me has surpassed me,
because He existed before me.’”)
WE SEE THE PROVIDENCE OF GOD IN THE RULING OF THE ELEMENTS!
Holman Christian Standard Bible 29 Aren’t two sparrows sold for a penny?[a] Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s consent.[b] 30 But even the hairs of your head have all been counted.
Holman Christian Standard Bible 18 but not a hair of your head will be lost.
King James Version 18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
GOD’S PROVIDENCE IS SEEN IN THE ORDERING OF MINUTEST MATTERS!
I lay here thinking,
words running through my mind,
how silent it would be,
in my mind,
if no words were around.
There would be no knowledge,
no wise words shared,
no one could say I love you,
and tell you they cared.
there would be no books,
and God’s word would not be read,
and we wouldn’t know,
the great things Jesus said.
The Bible states creation,
was by God’s word,
and in it,
we have the wisest words ever heard.
I know now,
what I am tryiny to say,
what we see around,
would not be here today.
Life’s race is like a marathon,
Run in years,
Instead of miles,
Some days bring heartaches,
And others bring smiles.
Some days the body is spry,
While others it pains,
And one wants to cry.
Some days are filled with sunshine,
And others filled with rain.
Each day is a challenge,
And a race to be run,
From day break,
To the setting of the sun.
In our spiritual life,
Life’s race is to be run,
Either following Satan,
Or God’s only Son.
Satan races us toward destruction;
Jesus leads us to Heaven,
Eternal life for everyone.
So let us run with Jesus,
Over life’s rocky track,
Looking toward the finish line,
And never looking back.
When life’s race is over,
Heaven will be our prize,
A land without sorrow,
And cloudy skies.

It snowed and the wind blew hard all night and is still blowing hard, but the snow has stopped and the sun is now shining brightly on me as I write these few words. My son – in – law drives a big snow plow and this morning he got stuck in a six foot snow drift; this reminds me about the storms we have on our life’s road, that we get stuck sometimes and need haled out to freedom. Everyone in born into the big snow drift of sin and we need haled out to have fellowship with God, our creator, again. That is why we need the hands of Jesus that will lift us out and plant our feet on the solid ground of His word and be steadfast again. God sends His Spirit to guide us and show us those snow drifts of life so we won’t get mired again!

Oh, sweet spring,
how bad I miss thee,
and want so badly,
the green grass to see,
but the way it is snowing,
coming down steadily,
it will be a while,
before I see the bumble bee.
Hasten sweet spring,
so I can hear,
your song birds sing!
