Without a doubt, providence is usually a sign that one is in the perfect will of God. But how do you define providence? Is it enough money for the project? Is it the right connections for your initiative to succeed? Not necessarily so, child of God.

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this knowledge.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
