God's chain and God's plan
(William S. Plumer, "A Treatise on Providence")
God's ways are unsearchable.
God's judgments are past finding out.
God's compassions are infinite.
God's power is almighty.
God's wisdom is unerring.
"I know that You can do all things; no plan of Yours
can be thwarted." Job 42:2
Providences are long chains with many links in them.
If one link were missing, the event would fail. But it
is God's chain and God's plan.
The thing is fixed.
The outcome is not doubtful.
"My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.
What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have
planned, that will I do." Isaiah 46:10-11
"The plan of Him who works out everything in conformity
with the purpose of His will." Ephesians 1:11
"This is the plan determined for the whole world."
