Providence


From The Heidelberg Catechism

Question 27. What dost thou mean by the providence of God?

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

praise be to God for His sovereign providence! thankfully, we are not stranded alone to fend for ourselves - but God sovereignly gives us everything we need and orchestrates our steps!
