Knowing God’s Providence

Article 28 of the Heidelberg Catechism:

What advantage is it to us to know that God has created, and by his providence does still uphold all things?

“That we may be patient in adversity; thankful in prosperity; and that in all things, which may hereafter befall us, we place our firm trust in our faithful God and Father, that nothing shall separate us from his love; since all creatures are so in his hand, that without his will they cannot so much as move.”
