God works in mysterious ways, his wonders to perform. I can’t count the many times I have said this or heard it from someone else. Christians can sense God’s hand at work as long as we are sensitive to such things. Things that happen to us may be considered luck, or coincidences, or even accident by others. But the closer our relationship with God, the sharper is our ability to sense the source of these wonders.
How many times have you had a problem and the next day when reading a daily devotional, or a Bible verse, you receive guidance about how to solve your problem. Other times something just pops into one’s head, telling us to call or visit so and so. We follow that thought and find that our contact was really needed. One could consider it a brilliant idea on one’s own part … but think again. We didn’t put the thought there; God did via the Holy Spirit.
As we keep your eyes and ears open … put our antennas up, we will find many of these wonders are not mysteries … they are God’s hand at work in the world. Thank you Lord.
