Themes in Proverbs Divine Providence

Proverbs 10:29 The way of the Lord is a stronghold to the upright,

But ruin to the workers of iniquity.


Both in God’s judgment and blessing, He is providing. That is what is at the root of providence – to provide. In many cases our minds associate   providing with blessings – God’s providence being complete and perfect also includes divine judgment. Just as breath and the sun and all things constant fill our lives so too does God’s providence. The workers of sin will find their end displeasing, if not in this life then in the judgment to come. Those who find safety and assurance, a stronghold, in the everlasting God will find their place there eternally. There is nothing greater than God’s providence, including your circumstance. He is just.   He will provide.
