Coincidence |kōˈinsədəns, -ˌdens|
A.) A remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection
B.) What we call the will of God when we don’t want to acknowledge His hand in an extraordinary occurrence. (I made this one up)
Heaven is very aware of our lives, and is very involved in almost every single little detail. We may refuse to think that this is the case, but its the way it is. On occasion, we may get big heads and think that we are in charge, in control, and that we have it all figured out. But, its not even close to being remotely true.
He knows what He is doing. He knows how we feel, what we feel, when we feel, and even what we will feel. And He knows for everybody, everywhere. He is just that good. On occasion, we get a small glimpse of a particle of a hint of His plan and it almost overwhelms us. We, just for a second, get a snapshot of what this plan may be for us. And it is awesome.
He guides us without us even knowing half the time that we are being guided. He is in control, His will is done. There is no other way.
In Mathew we learn about how He knows every single little detail of every little single thing, no matter how seemingly insignificant.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But all the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.”
If a bird falls from the sky, He knows. How many (or few, for some brothers) hairs are on your head? He knows. How, and Who can help you at this moment? He knows. He is in total and complete control. There are no coincidences, just the will of God being played out exactly as He has planned.
Was it coincidence that the world was created? With an atmosphere perfect to sustain life? with a temperature that fluctuates just enough to make life interesting and beautiful?
Is it coincidence that our bodies were formed with 206 separate bones, over 650 muscles, and 100 billion neurons with an incredible amount of intricacy that we still don’t fully understand?
Was it also coincidence that all plant life on the earth would be able to breath in the poisonous gas we exhale, and then breathe out oxygen necessary to sustain all animal life?
Is it coincidence that all animals and plants can replicate and reproduce themselves and carry on their specific genetic blueprints?
All of our human interactions with each other, are a complex symphony of movements acting out God’s will. We cannot even begin to fathom what is going on to influence us from the other side of the veil. We are all playing our part for each other. Every thought, or prompting to do good was sent from God. Every friendship created, and each moment of goodness was influenced by Him.
We sometimes unknowingly fulfill his will on this earth. We are just in the right spot at the right time. This is not a coincidence.
But, sometimes, we do know, and are very aware, that we are playing our proper part in this life. We may meet someone who may be like an answer to a prayer, or and earthly angel may be sent our way. Its during those moments that we catch that little glimpse of His plan for us. And it is awesome.
The Unheard Symphony
the music playing softly near,
Yet, still we dance, and move our feet,
while God conducts His symphony,
It plays beyond our senses’ reach,
directs our movements, touches each
and every soul to bend and sway,
With guiding sweet, melodic play,
This music played by angel hands,
does guide the hearts, and feet of man,
to play the part they’re meant to play,
and brighten up the dark of day.
Our God composes perfectly,
This influential symphony,
Ensuring that by unheard sound
Our earthly Angels will be found.
