The Providence of God


After six years of captivity as a slave in Ireland Patrick escapes and returns to his family in Scotland. But something wonderful had happened to Patrick because of his conversion to Christ – he did not hate the Irish, but instead he had a love for them.

He had seen the Druids in Ireland controlling the people, encouraging them to worship sacred trees, stones and even the sun itself. The Lord spoke to Patrick in a dream in which he heard, “ The voice of the Irish…We beg you, Holy boy, come and walk among us again.” He began to prepare for ministry to return to Ireland even though his family tried to persuade him not to.

In His providence God provided a way of escape for Patrick. He is also faithful to provide a way for you.

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man:but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
