What Begg was trying to do was get us to notice the mundane ways in which God works though our world. I can’t remember if he used the term or I came up with it but I find I need to hear about “God in the ordinary” today. Most Christians will understand that God created the world even if they tend to think in terms of a guided evolution. What we often fail to remember is that God holds all things together.
(Colossians 1:17 KJV) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.God’s hand is still active in our world. We don’t always understand. We wonder about terrorism and earthquakes. I wonder about you as you wonder about me. Why is my life so blessed when I see others in so much pain? I expect to understand more tomorrow and possibly a lot more in eternity. I will keep thinking and asking. Until I figure it out I am secure in the awareness that there are answers and reasons.
I don’t need to know how my body figures out antibodies but I do need to get enough sleep. I don’t understand why some learn to read and it remains a mystery for others. I would like to think my children have turned out so well is because I am an awesome father, but I know that isn’t enough.
It is Providence. It is grace. It is the hand of God.
