Their meeting was a miracle

RE Verse reading–Acts 8:26-40 (day four) “On his way he met an Ethiopian eunuch. . .(who was) sitting in his chariot reading the book of Isaiah” (vs 27-28)   Does anyone think this is a coincidence?  I don’t.  Miracles, for me, are not necessarily suspensions of natural law.  They are interventions of God in the affairs of men with outcomes that would have been otherwise impossible.  Acts 8, by this definition, was a miracle.  It happened with perfect timing.  One hour later, Philip would have missed the entourage and the opportunity.  The eunuch was reading the perfect passage of scripture (Isaiah–the lamb of God).  His heart had been perfectly prepared.  Philip had been perfectly equipped to trust the Spirit without question or hesitation.  People call these moments “divine appointments”.  I call them miracles.  Those who walk with the Spirit will encounter moments which carry the evidence of God’s involvement and pre planning.  What could be better?  God offers us life–the opportunity to be part of a miracle.
