Coincidence and the Bible

Is there such a thing as coincidence in your life as a growing Christian? Can you just happen to be in the right place at the right time? And what about the wrong place at the wrong time? Or does God control and guide your destiny--even the people you meet and the places you visit and the particular times involved? Coincidence--or Providence?

The answer to the question above is both simple and complex. It is simple because the straightforward one-word answer is Providence. The Bible teaches that God is not only sovereign in controlling all things at all times, but is actually programming and guiding events in accordance with His eternal purposes. Ephesians 1:11 says that "He works all things after the counsel of His will." (Nothing happens by pure chance or accident, and what appears to be merely fortunate or unfortunate circumstance is really the outworking of God's plans. However, the answer to the question of coincidence or Providence is also very complex. That is, it is complex from the human perspective because of our finite limitations. We don't always have the big picture to show us what God is doing and why He is doing it. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts" (Isaiah 55:9). How far God allows the sinful will of man, as well as the will of Satan, to operate in this world in specific instances is not easily determined. Again we must acknowledge, "How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!" (Romans 11:33). And how God is able to permit the evil and cruelty that has been perpetrated by men and devils and still "work all things after the counsel of His will" is beyond our finite comprehension. When and where God interrupts His natural laws by miraculous, supernatural intervention is not always clear. And what exact relationship exists between a believer's prayers (answered and "unanswered") and the outworking of God's pre-determined plans and purposes does not have a simple answer. We do know, however, that "the effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much" (James 5:16), and also that "God causes all things to work together for good to those who love Him" (Romans 8:28). So while the biblical answer to our original question is Providence and not coincidence or chance in any way, shape or form, we must acknowledge that our comprehension of this answer is far from complete. The intricate weavings of God's workings in history are sometimes better appreciated than investigated. (Read Psalms 131 and 139.)

Events in our lives today are not governed by coincidence or chance. They are all part of God's providential plan for our ultimate blessing.5
