I have a quick video to test your awareness today. See how well you do!
So how did you do?
This ad was to help remind motorists that they should be on the lookout for cyclists when driving. Turning to us spiritually, how often do you keep an eye out for what God’s doing in your life? Are you taking time to stop and thank God for all that he’s done, or are you so concentrated on little things that you miss the moonwalking bear?
I was doing some reading on coincidence last week. According to one author I was reading, the word coincidence appears once in the Bible. The word is translated from the Greek word synkyrian, a combination of sun meaning “together with,” and kurious meaning “supreme in authority.”
The author goes on to say a Biblical definition of coincidence could be, “what occurs together by God’s providential arrangement of circumstances.”
Today, take a moment to think about what has happened this week. Where have you seen God at work in your life?
Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
Note that God isn’t promising a life of ease, rather, a life where everything is working for the glory of God and our good. God may use a bad situation in our lives to bring us closer to him.
In all things, give praise to God. Look for his goodness in the highs and lows, and share them with your family!
