Hi, this is Joni Eareckson Tada. Are coincidences just random happenings, or are they? Is there such a thing as coincidences planned by God? Well, take a look at Acts chapter 17. It says the Apostle Paul was in Athens and while he was waiting for his friends, he visited the marketplace. Paul was distressed by all the foreign idols he saw, and so he “reasoned ... in the marketplace day by day with those who happened to be there.” I just love that: window shoppers, who by chance were meandering through the marketplace the day that Paul was preaching … some ended up becoming believers! They were there by chance, yet God purposed for them to be there. So next time you bump into someone you know—maybe by coincidence—remember, God ordained it, so make use of that “chance happening” by sharing His love. Because with God, nothing is ever random!
