Record the Providences

“If Christians in reading the scriptures would judiciously collect and record the providences they meet with there, and (if destitute of other helps) but add those that have fallen out in their own time and experience; O what a precious treasure would these make! How would it antidote their souls against the spreading atheism of these days, and satisfy them beyond what many other arguments can do, that The Lord he is God, the Lord he is God.”

Believe it or not, this was actually written over 330 years ago by the Puritan John Flavel (1627-1691) from a work entitled, The Mystery of Providence
