Coincidence? I Think Not. RN 065

I believe everyone has experiences in their lives that could either be viewed as coincidental or acts of fate. I like to think that certain of these experiences are more like Divine Appointments and here I tell a couple of those stories.

My wife and I had a couple of “near misses” before we met each other that might seem like simply coincidence and they probably were. We were in NYC on the same day as teens and saw the same production of Phantom Of The Opera ON THE SAME NIGHT. Yeah, I suppose those are easily enough passed off as coincidence, but after a gift we recently received with an astounding bit of detail, (A framed collage of items from that very same tour of Phantom, including ticket stubs from the same week Kayla and I were there) from dear friends who knew nothing of the story, we had to scratch our heads.

Then there was the answered prayer in the middle of the night on the darkest country road EVER. A silent angel appeared at the perfect moment and got me out of a jam in the most inexplicable way.

I know there are stories out there that people could share and I want to hear yours. Email me your COINCIDENCE? I THINK NOT story or call it in to the voicemail line:

Can You Hear God When He Speaks? - RN 061

In previous episodes, I have used the word DICHOTOMY completely wrong. I was thinking it meant the essence of a situation. The real definition is something like:

DICHOTOMY: A contrast between two things that are opposed or entirely different.

I like to own my mistakes, so consider that one owned.

Can we actually hear God when He speaks to us? I think so, just maybe not as audibly as they could hear Him back in bible times. Adam and Eve physically walked with God in the Garden of Eden before the fall of man. Noah was told to build a really big boat for a forthcoming really big flood. Moses audibly spoke with God many times, including once in the form of the burning bush. But Christianity teaches that Christ changed all that when he became the intercessor between us and God.

That doesn’t mean God never speaks to us, though. There are many stories of miraculous meetups with God, including recent reports from the Muslim community of visions and dreams of the Christ (Jesus) bearing witness to them that He is the Son of God.

I even have my own testimony. There have been several times when I heard God “in my head” and thought I was just hearing my own thoughts. (The full testimonies are in the audio version of this episode). Once I realized it was God talking to me, it changed my life.

So what do you do if you are convinced God is actually trying to get a message across? Three things:

  • 1 Pray for assurance that what you’re being told is divine and of God
  • 2 Don’t ignore Him
  • 3 Act on His guiding
