Now the donkeys of Kish, Saul’s father, were lost. So Kish said to Saul his son, “Take one of the young men with you, and arise, go and look for the donkeys.” -1 Samuel 9:3
There is nothing that happens by chance, happenstance, luck, or fate. Here, Saul was dreading going to look for lost donkeys in the hills of Ephriam, but look at the bigger picture God was painting! Here we have the invisible, providential hand of God working it all together for His glory and their good.
Even in the little mundane things, God is on the throne with a greater purpose.
[from 9.9.2013 Sunday Evening Sermon by Pastor Steve Wainright on 1 Samuel 9]
