Love the Holy Spirit "divine coincidences", those moments or words, which seem to be insignificant to us, yet the Holy Spirit is speaking specifically to some brother or sister. Those "coincidences" that even get us in hot water because it was too specific, or too exactly on target. Those moments are part of my great joy in preaching and teaching the Word. Thanks for the words brother.

I thoroughly connected with what was spoken and promise you, I will visit the account of King Asa. It ties in like a knot on a study I've been following elsewhere. Like King Asa, many rely on "other things" other than trusting God to the full. Over and over its happened, we've relied on other things rather than trust God to lead us by his Spirit. I know, because I've been guilty of the same. Why is it, we continue to move into doubt and unbelief and begin to rely on our own efforts and other things? The Holy Spirit's desire, is to have our full cooperation with him, to do all things that pertains to life- God, help us with our unbelief! Thank you so much, brother Chan.
