Word of the Day : Providence

Sep 28, 2021 | Words of Wisdom

PROVIDENCE – God conceived as the power sustaining and guiding human destiny; the protective care of God or of nature as a spiritual power

The word “providence” is striking. It comes from the word “provide” which has two parts: “pro” (Latin: “forward,” “on behalf of”) and “vide” (Latin: “to see”).  When we say, “I’ll see to it”, we mean “to supply what is needed; to give sustenance or support.” In the greatest sense, the noun “providence” is the act of God’s “seeing to” the universe – He provides.

Scripture : Romans 8:28

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”


“God’s providence is always one step ahead of us.”

— Pope Francis
