10. Lord’s Day

Q. 27. What dost thou mean by the providence of God?
A. The almighty and everywhere present power of God; [a] whereby, as it were by his hand, he upholds and governs [b] heaven, earth, and all creatures; so that herbs and grass, rain and drought, [c] fruitful and barren years, meat and drink, health and sickness, [d] riches and poverty, [e] yea, and all things come, not by chance, but be his fatherly hand. [f]

Q. 28. What advantage is it to us to know that God has created, and by his providence does still uphold all things?
A. That we may be patient in adversity; [a] thankful in prosperity; [b] and that in all things, which may hereafter befall us, we place our firm trust in our faithful God and Father, [c] that nothing shall separate us from his love; [d] since all creatures are so in his hand, that without his will they cannot so much as move. [e]
