Is anything really an “accident?”
February 14, 2013
Our God is in the heavens;
he does all that he pleases.
I heard about a man who, after several years of marriage, came to his pastor and said, “Pastor, I’ve got a problem I need to talk to you about.” He said, “We got married, moved to Singletree, Arkansas, and prayed that God would give us a baby. So He did.”
“Then we moved to Twin Falls, Idaho. We prayed again for a child. But this time, God gave us twins.” He said, “Then we moved again to Three Rivers, Pennsylvania. And you guessed it, Pastor… we got triplets!”
And the pastor said, “Well, that sounds very wonderful, son. So what’s your problem?”
“Well,” the man said. “I just got word we’re being transferred to Thousand Oaks, California!”
The things that may seem like accidents to us are all part of God’s perfect plan. And as the great preacher Charles Spurgeon used to say, “God is too good to be unkind and too wise to make a mistake. And when you can’t trace His hand, you can always trust His heart.”
God is committed to bringing glory to Himself and good to your life by making you more like Jesus. And He does that by what we call providence. God is never taken by surprise, and always works things out for your good and His glory. Trust Him!
TRUST GOD’S PROVIDENCE IN THE “ACCIDENTS” OF LIFE, KNOWING HE’LL WORK IT ALL OUT FOR YOUR GOOD!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
