God times better than good times

Third world problems, First world problems
Employment problems, Middle class problems
Family problems, Health problems
Boy problems, Girl problems
Climate problems, Pollution problems

Yes there is a lot that is wrong with this world, & then some.News, news, news & that isn’t even close to the half of it as activists & advice givers seek to change the world. It is easy to get over anxious about stuff, it is also natural but shouldn’t be a norm when it comes to trusting in God for all things. God assures us in His Word that He has a plan & if it comes from God it is sure to be purposed with infinite wisdom. In as much as we seek to be responsible & carry the load & the lot that has been given us, God calls us to be assured of His promises & to trust in His providence that comes in many ways. Joseph, Job & Jeremiah all trusted in God. 

Lord’s Day 10
27. Q. What do you mean by the providence of God?

A. The almighty and everywhere present power of God, whereby, as it were by his hand, he still upholds heaven, earth, and all creatures, and so governs them that herbs and grass, rain and drought, fruitful and barren years, food and drink, health and sickness, riches and poverty, yea, all things, come not by chance but by his fatherly hand.

With a limited nature humanity proclaims chance, 
but faith knows what humanity does not.
