It’s No Coincidence

By Linda Tancs

Dictionaries usually define coincidence as two or more events coming together in a surprising, unexpected way without an obvious causal explanation. Did you know that there’s no word for coincidence in Hebrew? The reasoning is that everything is divinely orchestrated, a belief supported in the Bible. After all, it tells us that every hair on our head is numbered (Luke 12:7) and every day recorded in His book (Psalm 139:16). If God knows every moment and characteristic of your life, then how could anything be coincidental? Think of those moments in your life when someone, or something, seemed to come at just the right time. Do you think of that as happenstance? Coincidence? What you see is not all that you get. What seems so random is actually perfectly controlled by the Creator, the governor of the heavens, the earth and the universe.

The One and Only You

By Linda Tancs

No two people have been found to have the same fingerprints—they are totally unique. Fingerprints are even more unique than DNA, the genetic material in each of our cells. Think about how unique you are; of all the billions of people who have lived or will live on this earth, there is only one you. Indeed, God intended each of us to be unique and extraordinary. He knows the number of hairs on your head (Luke 12:7). He fashioned us, individually, in our mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13-14).

So don’t ever think, or say, that you’re nothing special. You may be only one, but you are a unique and precious one to God. He created you for Himself!
