This week’s term: Providence – God’s governing and guiding power over all things in the universe, in providing, guiding, and restraining all forces within His creation, so as to effect His eternal decree.

Last week’s term: Foreordination – The activity of God in setting in order the motives, forces, and restraints necessary to bring to pass all things which He has eternally decreed, whether by restraining sinful men, or by placing before them opportunity to exercise their depravity.

One thought on “Theological Term of the Week: Providence

    That makes me think of the Anne of Green Gables books. I’m sure I’ve read other books that have used Providence, but that’s one I can think of off the top of my head.
