    Providence quotes by:    

And may that Being who is supreme over all, the Patron of order, the Fountain of justice, and the Protector, in all ages of the world, of virtuous liberty, continue His blessing upon this nation and its government, and give it all possible success and duration, consistent with the ends of His providence.

    Author: John Quincy Adams

I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in providence, for the illumination of the ignorant and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.

    Author: John Quincy Adams

God's providence is not blind, but full of eyes.

    Author: John Greenleaf Whittier

Inordinate desires commonly produce irregular endeavors. If our wishes be not kept in submission to God's providence, our pursuits will scarcely be kept under the restraints of his precepts.

    Author: Matthew Henry

Ravenous birds and the standards of the Roman army, ready to devour a people, reprobated and given up, as a dead carcass, by Providence.
- Philip Skelton

    Author: Assorted Authors

We failed, but in the good providence of God apparent failure often proves a blessing.
- Robert E. Lee

    Author: Assorted Authors

We hear much of a decent pride, a becoming pride, a noble pride, a laudable pride. Can that be decent, of which we ought to be ashamed? Can that be becoming, of which God has set forth the deformity? Can that be noble which God resists and is determined to abase? Can that be laudable, which God calls abominable? Providence is a greater mystery than revelation. The state of the world is more humiliating to our reason than the doctrines of the Gospel. A reflecting Christian sees more to excite his astonishment, and to exercise his faith, in the state of things between Temple Bar and St. Paul's, than in what he reads from Genesis to Revelations.

    Author: Richard Cecil

I will charge my soul to believe and wait for Him, and will follow His providence, and not go before it, nor stay behind it.

    Author: Samuel Rutherford

Howbeit your faith seeth but the black side of Providence, yet it hath a better side, and God shall let you see it. We know that all things work together for good to them that love God; hence I infer that losses, disappointments, ill tongues, loss of friends, houses or country, are God's workmen, set on work to work out good to you, out of everything that befalleth you.

    Author: Samuel Rutherford

God often lays the sum of His amazing providences in very dismal afflictions; as the limner first puts on the dusky colors, on which he intends to draw the portraiture of some illustrious beauty.

    Author: Stephen Charnock

As every mercy is a drop obtained from the ocean of God's goodness, so every affliction is a drachm weighed out in the wisdom of God's providence.

    Author: James H. Aughey

On the head of Christ are many crowns. He wears the crown of victory; He wears the crown of sovereignty; He wears the crown of creation; He wears the crown of providence; He wears the crown of grace; He wears the crown of glory - for every one of His glorified people owes his honor, happiness and blessedness to Him.
