God At Work!

Nothing is too hard for God; no change in providence, however it may appear improbable, or impossible to us. He could bring water out of the flinty rock. He could supply quail to satisfy the wants, and gratify the lusts of His people in the desert. He could feed Elijah for twelve months by ravens, and for two years and a half more by a handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in the widow's cruse. He could inundate Samaria with plenty in the midst of famine and fearful desolation. If He wills it,  the fire shall not burn the three Hebrew youth,   nor the lions injure Daniel,  nor death hold Lazarus in the tomb.

What He has done, He can do; for He is immutable. And if necessary for the glory of His name, He will do it, for He will not allow His name to be polluted.

"Providence" is simply God at work; at work for  the accomplishment of His decrees,  the fulfillment of His promises,   the manifestation of His character, and  the present and eternal welfare of His people.  He can give whatever we need, do whatever we need, and glorify Himself in giving to us, and working for us!
