Behind A Frowning Providence
Topic: Suffering Scripture: Ruth 1:1–1:22
The first chapter of Ruth reminds us of God's sovereignty even in our suffering. William Cowper wrote:
". . .behind every frowning providence is a smiling face."
We trust that God is in control over each and every difficulty life can throw at us, as He works out all things for His glory and our greater joy. This is gloriously good news, in spite of how we feel sometimes, because it means all hard things are ultimately redeemed for His people.
