What’s the Coincidence of That Happening?
11He has made everything beautiful in its time…
When I first became a Christian in 1985, things seeming to be coincidence happened regularly. I was self-employed as a plumber. My brother and I had just started our Plumbing Business in the Fort Worth Texas area, with Newspaper Ads in a 50 mile radius. Looking back now, and knowing the difficulty of a new business covering a 50 mile radius looking for plumbing repair work, we know that God was orchestrating the events in our lives. The amazing thing is when we would have calls they would either be in the top area of the Radius, lower area or some area where we did not have far to drive from one project to the next, sometimes all the jobs were a few streets apart. It seemed for the entire year that we did newspaper advertising, calls were always close together. We would also get pages about new plumbing projects on the way back home from a plumbing job. We didn’t have a cell phone, only a pager, so we would take the next exit where we received the page and look for a Payphone. Many times the plumbing job was very close to the exit that we took. It happened so often that we knew God was sending these jobs to us and picking the locations for us. We knew it was not by coincidence, and that God was providing for both our families.
Coincidence through Scriptures or Not?
We read in the Bible where a servant was sent out to find a wife for Isaac, He prays: “and let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink … let the same be she that thou has appointed for thy servant Isaac… “It was not by coincidence that Rebecca was the damsel who did exactly this. (Genesis 24:13-15)
It was not by coincidence all the people who met Jesus and were divinely healed of their sickness and disease. It was prophesied by Isaiah that this would happen and it was divinely planned with no coincidence involved. (Isaiah 53:3-5)
It was no coincidence that Joseph became the second in command under Pharaoh, and was given a plan to store grain in preparation of a seven year famine so that His family would be cared for. (Genesis 41:53-55)
It was no coincidence when Peter and the other fishermen had fished all night and caught nothing, but when Jesus told them to launch out into the deep and let down the nets, they caught a boat load of fish. (Luke 5:3-5)
When God orchestrates the happenings in the lives of people it is not by chance or coincidence, it is divinely planed and inspired by God. The plan always works perfectly in its time.
Gods Word without Coincidence
The blessings of Abraham came to him by a covenant God made with Abraham. King Melchizedek of Salem blesses Abram with God’s blessing. (Genesis 14:17-19) Because Abraham obeyed God’s voice, he was blessed by becoming the father of many nations; his blessing was promised to all his descendants as well. (Genesis 22:16-18) Abraham was blessed in many ways, including being very wealthy. (Genesis 24:34-36) After the death of Abraham, God blessed his son Isaac. (Genesis 25:10-12) These blessings have been made available to the gentiles through faith, who are “Born Again” into the family of God. (Galatians 3:13-15) These blessings came to Abraham and his descendants through faith in God blessing them, and they are received the same way today.
Beloved, God can make all things beautiful for you, in its time, not by chance. It will be no coincidence when the blessings of Abraham come to you as you are speaking faith in God’s promises and at the right time and the right place.
