The Sovereign Hand of God - J. C. Ryle

Just as the telescope and microscope show us that there is order and design in all the works of God’s hand, from the greatest planet down to the least insect, so does the Bible teach us that there is wisdom, order and design in all the events of our daily life. There is no such thing as “chance”, “luck”, or “accident” in the Christian journey through this world. All is arranged and appointed by God: and all things are ‘working together’ for the believer’s good (Rom. 8:28).     J.C. Ryle, "Day by Day"

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will.     Ephesians 1:11
