The Providence of God

In The Providence of God, Berkouwer relates providence to both the love of God as the object of the believer’s faith and the believer’s faith by which providence is subjectively experienced.
“in the doctrine of providence we have a specific Christian confession exclusively possible through a true faith in Jesus Christ … this faith is no general, vague notion of Providence. It has a concrete focus: ‘If God is for us, who is against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not also with him freely give us all things?’ (Rom.8:31,32) … the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. There is no purer expression than this of the depth of man’s faith in God’s Providence. ” (pp. 45, 47).
