El Misterio de la Providencia
The Mystery of Providence, by John Flavel – in Spanish
Do we believe that everything in the world and in our own lives down to the minutest details is ordered by the providence of God? Believers can benefit immeasurably from taking the time to observe and meditate on the workings of God’s providence, and Flavel instructs us how to improve the effort.
John Flavel’s The Mystery of Providence has gained renown for over 300 years as the all-time classic work on the subject of the providence of God. He starts with Psalm 57:2: “I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.”, and from there, leads his readers to reflect on this truth: “It is the duty of the saints, especially in times of straits, to reflect upon the performances of Providence for them in all the states and through all the stages of their lives.”
Far from a merely theoretical book, this was authored by a pastor with a huge heart, living in times of political upheaval and with the cities of England disease-ridden, which even dramatically impacted his own family.
