Episode 5.1: Providence: Greatest to Least

black_throated_sparrow_sim_1.JPG

How do we define providence and where do we go in the Bible to understand it? What similarities does this paragraph have with other Reformed confessions? How is God’s providence seen from the least to the greatest? How can we pastor people who are going through difficult providence? What is the aim of God’s providential governing of all things? These are some of the questions we discuss in this week’s episode. Join Joel, Shawn, Nathan, and Kyle as they discuss WCF 5.1:

God the great Creator of all things does uphold, direct, dispose, and govern all creatures, actions, and things, from the greatest even to the least, by His most wise and holy providence, according to His infallible foreknowledge, and the free and immutable counsel of His own will, to the praise of the glory of His wisdom, power, justice, goodness, and mercy.
