The Master Behind Providence

by Frank Jones

It is impossible to be submissive and religiously patient, if ye stay your thoughts down among the confused rollings and wheels of second causes, as O, the place! O, the time! O, if this had been, this had not been followed! O, the linking of this accident with this time and place! Look up to the master motion and the first wheel.
— Samuel Rutherford, 1600-1661
