If Life is a coincidence then everything happening around is also a coincidence.. but if life is God's plan.. then everything that is happening around in our life is God's plan..
When a situation (it can be difficult situation or an happy situation) occurs in my life, I can interpret it as either it was just a concidence or we can interpet it as God's plan. But there is a huge gap between how I can handle the stuation when I see the things in these two ways.. when I think if what happened is concidence and something that is uncontrolled, then I put myself into a chaos, where I really dont have any clue about how do I relate or think or plan to overcome the situation. But when I think of this same thing as God's plan, it really gives me the hope and the vision and the path forward that everything is in control of the Lord, and He is not going to let me down, He is going to be with me forever.
(NIV) Job 1:8 Then the Lord said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.
When I look at Job's life in the Bible, in reality if we take away the conversation between the Lord and the Satan, the situation in Job's life is so chaotic, to see his house, his sheep, his servants, his camels, his health everything was destroyed within a few minutes, when I take away the God's plan from this, the situation looks so chaotic and so uncontrollable. But the only thing and hope that can bring back everything better first is the faith in God's plan, which is both in destruction and construction.
(NIV) Job 42:10After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before.
