Considering the many passages of Scripture that speak of God's providence over the natural world, Frame writes,
"...these are things that God does because they please him. He does not merely allow them to happen; rather, he makes them happen. God waters the land. God drenches the furrows. God makes the clouds rise...God makes it snow or rain. God sends the frost and the ice, and then, when he pleases, he melts it. As he created all things by his word, so he sends his command, his word, to govern the events of nature." - ST, p147.
