“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” – Psalms 23:1
My sister chanced upon this verse recently and she was wondering what it meant:
What was it that she shall not want.
However she then experienced a couple of coincidences (situations, I suppose) which explained the verse to her and she grasped the meaning behind it.
When she posted about such coincidences, I felt a gentle prompting that they weren’t coincidences.
I was reminded of one of the fundamentals that I was taught as a believer is that there are no coincidences.
Nothing happens by chance.
What my sister experienced was not a coincidence.
They were God incidents.
If we think random, significant events happening and popping are coincidences,
Then I think we leave our lives a lot to chance,
But we know that’s not true,
Because God has a plan for each and everyone of us.
And that’s why Psalms 23 ends by telling us,
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow us,
All the days of our lives.”
