Publisher's Summary

This Puritan classic, first published in the late 17th century, sets forth the biblical teaching of God and his interaction in our lives.

No detail is too small or insignificant for God; he is there, working out "all things for good". And in that promise, every believer can take comfort that God truly has a purpose for every single person and will unfold his plan, which includes every detail in our daily lives.

Chapter topics include: proofs of a special providence; the operations of providence; the duty of reflecting on the operations of providence; directions for reflecting on the dispensations of providence; motives to a due observance of providence; and the practicality of providence.

Encouraging

The way Flavel writes is fantastic - he describes how a Christian ought to think given difficult situations. He also describes how we ought not to think. Highly recommended for a Christian going through tough times.
