The working of God in all parts of our lives, in small things as well as great, we call ‘providence’. These special workings of his providence are not mere accidents. From the day of our birth to the day of our death, God is working for the good of those who have been called according to his purpose.

In this simplified and abridged form of his 1677 classic work entitled Divine conduct or The Mystery of Providence John Flavel addresses how God works providentially in our lives, as well as why and how we should think deeply about these providences. An encouragement to Christians to taste and see the good God has done in our own lives.

This classic Puritan work, John Flavel, is a discourse upon Proverbs 4:23, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Flavel intended this treatise for the specific purpose of illuming, healing, and guarding the heart. He had a strong conviction, that saints should be marked by their holiness, therefore matters of the heart were of the utmost importance in the Christian life.

The mystery of Providence, by John Flavel, presents the Puritan perspective on God’s 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 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 people’s 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, Flavel’s 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.

“An Honest, Well-Experienced Heart” introduces us to the life and writings of a Puritan preacher and author John Flavel (1627–1691). In his brief, introductory biography, Adam Embry discusses Flavel’s background, ministry, and theology of keeping the heart, which, for Flavel, “is the great business of a Christian’s life.” Centuries ago, Flavel wrote, “Above all other studies in the world, study your own hearts.” Embry guides us through forty-two short passages from Flavel’s writings that acquaint us with this dedicated Puritan minister’s piety and help us see the importance of this great business of keeping and managing our hearts.
