What a beautiful doctrine â€śprovidenceâ€ť is! God the Father â€“ your Father â€“ rules every creature â€“ every action â€“ and nothing happens out of his will.
Brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ: Knowing this doctrine: 1. Donâ€™t fear and donâ€™t worry. Know who your Father is able to do what he promised to do for you. Be thankful when things go well. Be patient when they donâ€™t.
2. Donâ€™t put unreasonable pressure on yourself trying to control things that you canâ€™t. Put your confidence in Godâ€™s promises. If you get cancer, you either will get better of you will die â€“ but you are still Godâ€™s child. If you lose your phone, either you find it back, buy a new one, or learn to live without. But you have a permanent phone line to heavenâ€¦and it is pre-paidâ€¦and unlimited. If you miss the bus you might be fired from your job, but God never terminates your citizenship in heaven. Instead of worrying, let this doctrine cause you to worship God better. He is the one who truly cares for you.
3. Teach this doctrine to your children. They are facing many pressures in todayâ€™s world. Remind them that God controls all things. They have their responsibility to study hard, but they donâ€™t need to be worried. God will provide for them.
4. Why would you not fear or worry? Why should you not put unreasonable pressure on yourself? Why must you teach this doctrine to your children? Because you are the blood bought children of God through Jesus.
