Coincidence or God’s timing? Let’s ask the more pertinent question first. What is a coincidence? The dictionary definition of a coincidence is “a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.” Hmm. Sounds exactly like the way God works.
First – God, along with all He has done and will do, is remarkable. He has supremacy and control over all events. Second – what appears to be without a connection or unpredictable to us, is already known to Him because He knows all things long before they occur.
In this picture called, “Red Means Go,” God allowed the photographer to capture a “coincidental” (or not so coincidental) moment where the original main subject (a bright red door contrasted by the freshly painted yellow road striping) came to LIFE when a biker entered the frame wearing the exact same colors on his bike, shirt and helmet. Wow! What a coincidence! I mean, What A GOD!
Think about how many times a day God is placing remarkably concurrent events without any apparent connection in your life. Some noticed and disregarded as coincidence. Likely many more completely ignored or missed entirely.
This is just one of many ways God communicates with us throughout the day, throughout our lives, letting us know that He is always with us. Throughout the day, we need to stay still long enough to witness and enjoy these amazing moments.
