Mystery of Providence, by John Flavel, presents the Puritan perspective on the Gods providence in practical terms. The book is really a lengthy meditation and application of Psalm 52:7. which says I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me. From this text, Flavel derives his doctrine (falling in line with typical Puritan sermon-structure): It is the duty of the saints, especially in times of straits, to reflect upon the performances of Providence for them in all the states and through all the stages of their lives. This theme is then unfolded in in a three-part treatise, covering (1) The Evidence of Providence, in which Flavel seeks to prove and demonstrate the reality of God's Providential care over the lives of believers by looking at such things as birth, upbringing, conversion, employment, family affairs, preservation from evil, and sanctification; (2) Meditation on the Providence of God, where the author shows that it is our duty to meditate on Providence, directs in how to do this, and then covers ten advantage to gained from this practice; and (3) Application of the Doctrine of Providence, in which the practical implications of the doctrine are considered and the problems and questions arising in peoples minds are answered. Though not as witty and colorful as Thomas Brooks, as practical as Thomas Manton, as astute as Stephen Charnock, or as experiential as John Owen, Flavels book does have many merits. Flavel himself lived a difficult life in which he knew firsthand how to rely on God's sovereignty in his life, and his work cultivates a greater awareness of God's mercy, trust in God's wisdom, and resignation to God's will day by day.
