Now it happened that...

Was reading Exodus 2 this week... I love how the text so calmly says, "Now it happened that..." (NLT) Sometimes things are so subtle...but "it just so happened" that Moses went to a well, where the Priest of Midian's daughters were...
Moses comes to their aid - then he gets to go home to dinner...and eventually is given a wife.
Moses flees Egypt after murdering an Egyptian...and God "happens" to lead him to a place where he will grow and be prepared to deliver a nation - much like he delivered Reuel/Jethro's daughters from the mean shepherd men.

I wonder how many "just so happened"'s happen in my own life?
As one person said, "Prayer a coincidence? I don't know. But all I do know is that the more I pray, the more coincidences I see."

Keep looking for the King.
