Coincidence? I don't think so...
I recently heard Bill Johnson say something like this, "When you are leaning into God there is no such thing as a coincidence...if you are living naturally everything is chance." Most of you, my readers, know that I recently changed the way that I receive a paycheck. That we are believing God to sell our home in a soft market. Our God loves to find difficult situations so He can demonstrate His love and care for His children.
Here's the story. I was at the Board of Elections office this morning when I saw a white object on the edge of the flower bed...I reached down and picked it up. It was a sea shell with a Bible verse written in it. What are the chances of that? Since the polls opened hundreds of people had probably walked past that spot. No one had claimed the shell. That shell wasn't for them. It was for me. I could not wait to get home and share the shell with Beth and the boys. God strategically placed that shell there to encourage me in my journey today! Oh yeah..the verse, Deuteronomy 8:18. Go ahead look it up. I dare you.
Your turn. Has a verse been given to you at just the right time?
