There Are No Coincidences
How many times are we being watched over by God and not realize His hand in the situation? My parents have both passed, but I am blessed with a mother and father in law who understand the power of Gods guidance in one’s life as I think of a time when they were traveling and we are detoured and after safely arriving to their destination later learned that the place they were detoured from had a tornado pass through that road! This true example shows us if we heed the signs placed before us for our good that we are blessed in deed…….. while my in laws could have avoided the signs as some that day may have we must know that God knows us always for the good and there are no coincidences as His path is always best. (Proverbs 3:5,6). Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Many will go about through their day and choose to do whatever they want and yes things will work out at times, but for those who seek direction from God and seek out His path will be amazed at just how more works out by being under His guidance. (Psalm 17:5-8). Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not. I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech. Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
We read in Exodus of the ultimate guidance of God when by stretching out His hand made it possible for the Israelites to pass on dry land through the red sea! (Exodus 15:8-13). And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters. Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.
