Providence is the hand of God in the glove of history…it is God sitting behind the steering wheel of time. Providence refers to God’s governance of all events so as to direct them toward an end. It is God taking what you and I would call luck, chance, mistakes, happenstance and stitching them into achieving His purposes. (Tony Evans)
This morning in worship we started the second arc of our “Story” series by exploring the Joseph narrative. Kent Hughes states that “the Joseph narrative is the longest and most masterful narrative in Genesis and perhaps the entire Bible.” While Joseph is the main character in Genesis 37-50, ultimately and above all, these chapter display the truth that God is working God’s will through the everyday, ordinary events of life. This is a story about the hidden, but sure hand of God.
