    Coincidence or God ordered, which one? Why do you think so?

    Some people call them coincidences, others all them 'god' things, what is your take? Please elaborate.

    Stuff happens, and coincidences is an ambiguous word here.What kind of coincidences are we referring to here?

    If you believe in God, then you better believe it's a God ordered coincidence. Nothing else to it. Life is a Domino effect of coincidences, luck, and intentions.

    I believe everything happens for reason, and that there is more beyond who we are on earth. What you want to call it, well that's up to the person.

    Because I am not sure what your question is in reference to I will answer it the way it sounds to me. I believe that man/woman too often try to find someone to blame when things go wrong in their life. Perfection does not live here and anything that can happen more often than not does. No one can say that God has a controlling hand on all the things that happen in this world. Maybe, just maybe we call these things to ourselve by way of karma or the way we lead our lives.....just sayin

    "Coincidences" suppose to serve a purpose, and that purpose is to think, to put much thought into "whatever"for it has happened for an alarming reason.  Things don't happen or take place just because..... what you consider a red flag fits the same bill as a coincidence.  I don't believe that "God" has anything to do with coincidences.  As we grow, we are suppose to learn, if you choose not to but instead repeat the same behavior, think the same way, make the same "mistakes" remain immature, "never grow up" then coincidences will have no meaning to you outside of the fact that it took place.  Furthermore, I don't believe "God" will waste his time warning someone who is stubborn or could care less about a heads up.

    For our own lives, I don't believe in either coincidence or God ordered events.  I believe we are the master of our own destiny and can manifest our life, good or bad by our wishes and fears.  However, I also believe that we are all connected to God, therefore we work in collusion to achieve our Soul's True Path.

    When things aren't going well, we may be stuck and should reflect on what we must do to move forward in our life. 

    When things go very well, then we are likely going the right way and should count our blessings.

    God, of course.  I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason.

    If it was God's ordering or doing, it would be in His will for us. We all have free will, which is why with everything we do, we must pay a consequence, good or bad. If one robs a bank, they must deal with the outcome. Doing right and doing wrong will determine the outcome. If we are doing wrong or sinning, we are forcing God's hands out of our lives and taking the wheel. When we sin, we ride on our free will not God's will for us. I am not 100% sure if this is what you were asking or not.

    I was once a believer of everything happens for a reason, but if that were the case, free will wouldn't exist. We chose to go through things, and do things and the consequences aren't always good. That's life though. Action, reaction, growth. We either continue to grow closer to God or we simply grow with the world, and thoughs who read the bible know the outcome of being "of the world".

    The Bible says that ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR THE GOOD, TO THOSE WHO LOVE GOD AND WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE. It says HIS PURPOSE. It all falls back on faith and how deep your faith is. If you have the faith to believe that every single thing that happens in your life is for a purpose or a reason and you want to acknowledge God in your situation then that's your choice. No one should be judging you or analyzing you because you choose to acknowledge God in all you do. Every great man of faith that deciced to acknowledge God in everything they did, do, or happenstance were riddiculed and outcast. EVERYTHING happens for a reason, EVERYTHING! and its dependent on what level of faith you have in God that's going to determine your outcome. Don't believe what I'm saying? Read the book of JOB in it's entirty then comment on what I've said.

    It's a subjective thing. If you believe in coincidences then that's all they are for you. If you believe these incidences are God ordered, then they have a meaning and a purpose for you, and you learn from them. I could add that many people's lives have been changed by so-called coincidences. St. Augustine of Hippo was one such a person. He was begging the Lord with tears, one day, to help him reform his life when he heard a child in the distance chanting the words, "Take up and read." He didn't think it was just a coincidence, so he took the Bible and read a passage of the Gospel that read, "Go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come and follow me." He found a subjective meaning in those words, as if they had been meant for him in that particular circumstance. The impact was so strong that it changed his life.

    May it be God that orders things into existence or coincidence, this hub is an answer to a question, as to which one is the cause of the order of all things in existence, or as scientist call it the entropy of things, both order and disorder. read more

    Misunderstandings gives everything a chaotic existence, and since God is the first and biggest of all misunderstanding then how can you know the truth of the matter?
    For either way the question is answered the result would be the same unless you understood God to begin with... Which means that you needed not  to asked the question to begin with.
