A catechism teaches Biblical truth in an ordinary way. This is generally done using questions and answers along with Scriptural support and explanation. Each week, we will provide a new question, Scripture, and the answer to the question. Feel free to use Scripture to come up with your own answers. A catechism is not meant to be exhaustive, but to give you a foundation to "keep growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:17).
What are God's works of providence?
God's works of providence are the holy, wise, and powerful acts by which he preserves and governs all his creatures and all their actions.
Is there such a thing as luck in a world ruled by the providence of God? "The lot is cast into the lap, but the decision is wholly from the Lord" (16:33). Many of God’s acts of providence may not look "holy and wise" (like storms that kill thousands of people). But God has his secret purposes (Deut. 29:29) that we are never great enough to see, and the Judge of all the earth always does right (Genesis 18:25).
