What are God’s works of providence?

God’s works of providence are, his most holy, wise, and powerful preserving and governing all his creatures, and all their actions.[1]

God will always act righteously and kindly toward all of his creatures, because God is righteous and kind.[2]

The Son of God, Jesus Christ, is the radiance of God’s glory in human flesh. When we look to Christ, we are looking to God, for he is the exact representation of God’s nature. Not only is he the exact representation of the nature of God, being the Word, he is the power of God. He is at the righthand of the Father, having made purification of sins, nothing or no one can thwart the Word.[3]

The throne of God is not on the earth but is established in heaven. This means that God’s rule is above rule of man. His rule is perfect and powerful, there is nothing that God cannot do. Though it may seem at times, that the enemy has the upper hand, God’s sovereignty rules over all of his creation and all of his creatures.[4]
