Every once in a while, I get an urge. A hunch. A feeling. An inclination to act or to not act, with no apparent basis in circumstances at the time. Then it works out beautifully.
I can be driving along in perfectly-normal traffic and I get the urge to change lanes. If I don’t, I end up behind a mile of cars at a red light, and if I do I drive by a mile of cars in the “wrong” lane at the green light. An instinct to take one step, and then something comes crashing down where my foot used to be. Tonight, I was going to do some intricate wiring on an electronics project, and I had a feeling I shouldn’t solder the wires down until I was done routing them all. And I made a mistake. If it had been soldered, it would have been a minor disaster. It wasn’t soldered, so it worked out fine.
God made the universe. God made the Earth, Sun, Moon and Stars. By His wisdom, at His will, all things consist. He can turn the heart of a King at His will . . . but you don’t give Him enough credit to give the occasional hint to his children?
