God Rules All!

Dear sir,

Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did He in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places (Psalm 135:5).

God rules all! And though He is concealed by a veil of second causes from common eyes, so that they can perceive only the means, instruments and contingencies by which He works, and therefore think He does nothing; yet, in reality, He does all, according to His Own counsel and pleasure, in the armies of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth …

In Him His creatures live, move and have their being … bearing the impress of His wisdom, power and goodness … All the abilities, powers, and instincts, which are found among creatures, are emanations from His fullness …
