No Coincidences For Christians
God leaves nothing to chance, especially for those who belong to Him and want His will.
Psalms 37:23: The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
Proverbs 16:33: The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.
Matthew 6:13a: And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: . . .
Romans 8:28: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Ruth 2:3: She gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon:
Her hap was. Yes, it seemed nothing but an accident, but how divinely was it overruled! Ruth had gone forth with her mother*s blessing, under the care of her mother*s God, to humble but honourable toil, and the providence of God was guiding her every step. Little did she know that amid the sheaves she would find a husband, that he should make her the joint owner of all those broad acres, and that she a poor foreigner should become one of the progenitors of the great Messiah. God is very good to those who trust in Him, and often surprises them with unlooked for blessings. Little do we know what may happen to us to-morrow, but this sweet fact may cheer us, that no good thing shall be withheld. Chance is banished from the faith of Christians, for they see the hand of God in everything. The trivial events of to-day or to-morrow may involve consequences of the highest importance. O Lord, deal as graciously with Thy servants as Thou didst with Ruth.
