GIVE GOD ALL THE GLORY
NO SUCH THING AS COINCIDENCES
I first give honor to Jehovah-Jireh (The Lord who provides), my Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ.
As we are in the second month of this year, and we begin to look back over our lives and the different events that have transpired in our lives, we realize now that it had to be the hand of God at work. God tells us in James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
It doesn’t have to always be what we may deem as big things in our lives to make us realize that God was working and that it was not just a coincidence. You will see the hand of God working in all sorts of ways in your life as you serve Him.
It could be something like, a co-worker resigning from a position, and all of a sudden, you are promoted. Or, perhaps you were really needing some encouragement and out of the blue God used someone you didn’t even know to speak a word of encouragement to your heart.
Then we could look at some of the bigger things, like God sparing your life when the doctors said you wouldn’t make it. These are all signs of the favor and the hand of God in your life, and that these are no coincidences.
When you are tempted to get down on yourself, feel sad or defeated; just look back and see how good God has always been and know that it is no such thing as coincidences with God.
As we journey on this walk of faith as a Christian (a Christ Follower), one way to keep your faith strong and keep building your faith is to remember all those times when God made a way where there seemed to be no way.
When every door was locked against you, then suddenly out of nowhere, God turned things around. And the great promise in this, is that because we are children of God and belong to our Great Father, if He did it before, He will do it again. Hebrews 13:8 tells us: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Take time to remember the goodness and faithfulness of God, and you will understand that there are no coincidences in Him. When you realize that, it will strengthen you to keep fighting the good fight of faith in the finish work of the Cross.
Mennie and I thank God for you being in partnership with us. It is no coincidence that God allowed us to work together with Him in the Kingdom of God. Your love, prayers and support are not going unnoticed by God or the ministry of BTBAB. The Word of God promises us in Proverbs 19:17 (NLT) If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord— and he will repay you! You are truly a Blessing to the Body of Christ, and that’s No Coincidence!
In His Will,
Dr. Joseph Morrison, D.Min
