You can either believe the timing in this story is a coincidence or it is a God-incidence. There is really no way to convince a person about this one way or the other. It comes down to your beliefs.
I believe this story is filled with God-incidents. I believe the Lord is orchestrating things to work out to His end, which is to save His people. And I love the way God works quietly. God works and we give Him the praise.
Rather than leave this morning’s time with the Lord in the ancient world, I pushed the channel button in my mind and began thinking about my life and the many God-incidents in my life.
· Meeting and connecting and eventually marrying my wife.
· The amazing way God opened the doors to my work in
· My life transition from engineering to pastoral ministry.
· My coming to faith… all of the God-incidents along the path to belief.
On and on my mind floated from one God-incident in my life to another. I am thankful for each one. They have changed my life and my focus.
God is at work and it is good to pause and recognize His work.
I am so thankful I worship and serve the God of the universe, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit revealed in the Bible the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments!
I pray you know the Lord, too. If you have questions about God drop me a comment or email…
Lord, as I walk today, please open my eyes to Your workings in the world. Help me to see and hear even a few of the ways You are active in the circle of life I will move in today. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
