(Pro 5:21) For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
We don’t hear the word “Providence” much any more. We have a lot of synonyms but the problem, and blessing, of synonyms is that they bring out nuances, not the real emphasis. Part of the providence of God is that He is omniscient. That is the big word we use meaning He knows all that there is to know. The philosophers get off in the weeds telling us that this also includes knowing all the possible things that cannot be true or possible. Thus God would know what you would look like if you had three heads. Such concepts bring joy to philosophers.
For me it is enough to know that God has His eye on me. That can be an encouragement not to wander. It can keep me coloring between the lines. It can also be an assurance.
So? When you check the weather in the morning remember that the weather man is just making an educated guess. God could tell you the precise high for the day but that would take the mystery out of life. Enjoy.
