Ruth 1:22 (JDV)
Ruth 1:22 So Naomi came back from the territory of Moab with her daughter-in-law Ruth the Moabitess. They arrived in Bethlehem at the beginning of the barley harvest.
Naomi and Ruth’s travel to Bethlehem coincided with the barley harvest. But this was no coincidence. Either Naomi timed their travel so that it would allow them a means to provide for their needs, or God planned their travel so that the story of Ruth would have his desired ending.
The more we meditate on our life’s story, the more occurrences we tend to see of this divine coincidence. He either gives us wisdom to make choices that turn out to be beneficial for us, or he orchestrates those choices from above. These things are not dumb luck, but visible signs of an invisible hand moving the pieces on the board.
LORD, thank you for your invisible hand, orchestrating the divine coincidences of our lives.
