Providence

Nothing you are going through escapes the attention of God. He has not missed your suffering, your trials or your difficulties. In fact, he sees them before you do.

The Puritans spoke of God's providence, saying everything happens within God's providence. The word “providence” comes from the Latin words “pro”, meaning “see”, and “vide”, meaning “before”. We often fail to recognize this when we suffer or struggle. We feel alone. We feel that God does not care.

This feeling is false. Jesus said "are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father." You never suffer alone. Your heavenly father knows and cares.
