John Flavel on Providence

I’ve been reading “The Mystery of Providence” by John Flavel, and he condensed some of my thoughts on it down very well:
“I know there is nothing in the Word or in the works of God that is repugnant to sound reason, but there are some things in both which are opposite to carnal reason, as well as above right reason; and therefore our reason never shows itself more unreasonable than in summoning those things to its bar which transcend its sphere and capacity. Many are the mischiefs which ensue upon this practice.” (p.141)

Comments or thoughts? It is a great book, and I suggest you pick up a copy. Not fast reading though.
