The laws of nature

(J. R. Miller, "The Best Things in Life")

God's will controls the smallest matters, and
takes into account the smallest events in each
life. A Spanish proverb says, "A leaf does not
stir on the tree—without the will of God." God's
hand is in every event. We talk of the the laws
of nature
—but what is nature? It is not something
independent of God. The laws of nature are simply
God's laws
. Nothing takes place that is contrary
to the divine will. Nothing—no storm, no earthquake,
no cyclone, no tidal wave—ever gets out of God's

This world is not controlled by chance, nor by any
blind fate
—but by Him who loved us so much, that
He gave His son to die for us.
