Coincidence, Good luck or God at work?

Do you know what a coincidence is?  The dictionary says that the definition is: the occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident but seem to have some connection

Personally, I think that every day God has orchestrated events. They are Not a coincidence, Not good luck, rather they are God ordained appointments.  He is at Work!

Reflect on these biblical events-

Moses alone as a baby in a basket floating in the Nile River- Pharaoh's daughter sees him and takes him home. Coincidence, good luck or God at work?

Joseph interpreted a dream for Pharaoh and then became head of his household. Coincidence, good luck or God at work?

Esther (a Jewess) becomes queen. Then one of the kings servants, in the middle of the night goes to get a scroll to read to the king. He "happens" to pick the one that will have a blessing for Mordecai. Coincidence, good luck or God at work?

In 2 Kings chapter 8 a great example of God at work is shown.

Elisha tells a woman that she should take her son and move away because there is a 7 year famine in the land. While she is gone someone has taken over her land and possessions. The only way to get her land and possessions back was to present her request to the King. As she was entering the palace,
a servant of Elisha was speaking about her to the King! This is what happened next, the King declared, “Give back everything that belonged to her, including all the income from her land from the day she left the country until now.”
WOW!! Coincidence, good luck or God at work?

I have also seen God at work. Just yesterday a woman and her children walked into my school office. She had a translator with her who said the woman was learning both English and Spanish. At first I was confused until I found out that this woman, this familiar looking woman spoke Quiche. Quiche is a dialect that some Mayan people speak in Guatemala. As soon as I found this out, I praised God and excitedly said, I have just visited Guatemala and have been close to where you grew up! The woman then declared, "God is in this place!" 
Coincidence, good luck or God at work?

Oswald Chambers said:  “The things that happen do not happen by chance, they happen entirely in the decree of God. God is working out His purposes.
 God stories!  We all have them.  Every day He is at work!  Look for them!

Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare. Psalms 40:5 

Father, I am humbled to think that you are with us, working in, through and alongside of us each and every day! Open my eyes to see where you are working and join you in your work! You are marvelous Lord!  Can't wait to see what you will do tomorrow!!!
