Thoughtful, sleepless, loving care
(J. R. Miller, "Weekday Religion" 1880)
There is no comfort like the fact of God's infinite, unchanging and eternal love for us! If we can but get this truth into our minds and hearts — it will sustain us in every trial. All the universe is under God's personal sway, and He is our tenderest and dearest Friend, carrying each one of us close in His heart.
Providence is not merely the outworking of a mechanical system, or the beneficent operation of wise and good laws. It is rather — the thoughtful, sleepless, loving care of our Heavenly Father!
"The Lord who created you says: Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are Mine! When you go through deep waters and great trouble — I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty — you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression — you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior!" Isaiah 43:1-3
