14 And Absalom and all the men of Israel said, The counsel of Hushai the Archite is better than the counsel of Ahithophel. For the Lord had appointed to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, to the intent that the Lord might bring evil upon Absalom.
15 Then said Hushai unto Zadok and to Abiathar the priests, Thus and thus did Ahithophel counsel Absalom and the elders of Israel; and thus and thus have I counselled.
Hushai Warns David to Escape
10 The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. HIS PROVIDENCE IS SEEN IN HIS DEFEATING WICKED DESIGNS!
Gen..45:5 But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life. 6 For these two years the famine has been in the land, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. 7 And God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.
Philippians 1:12 But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, HIS OVER RULING WICKED DESIGNS FOR GOOD!
Gen.8:2222 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
Job 26:10 He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.
Psalms 104: 5
5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
GOD’S PROVIDENCE IS SEEN IN HIS PRESERVING THE COURSE OF NATURE!
