While doing all this between Christ’s first and second comings, I believe that Christians are to see the hand of God in all things. They are to thank Him for His blessed providence even in their adversities — and also in their ordinary day-to-day circumstances.
As the Heidelberg Catechism (Q. 1 & Lord’s Day 10) states, my only com-fort in life and death is that I am not my own but belong with body and soul to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ. He “so preserves me — that without the will of my heavenly Father, not a hair can fall from my head; yea, that all things must be subservient to my salvation.”
