Swedenborg says it is impossible to see God’s Providence in the face, as it is happening, but that we can see it when we look back in reflection on the past. In other words, in times of crisis it is very hard to necessarily sense that God is present and working to bring good out of a bad situation. However, when we look back at such times we can often see the gentle hand of God at work.
Is it faithfulness God desires in us or could it be the Spirit of All desires we be faithful to the truth which is within us. 
Old English word treowth, meaning ‘faithful,’ Treowth itself came from the Old Norse word trÓa, meaning ‘faith’ and ‘trust’ and closely related to the Old Norse word traust, which meant only trust from within.
