It’s a God Thing!

…really?

Seems to be the newest catch phrase in Christian circles these days – “It’s a God thing”.  I heard it over and over this past weekend – may have even said it myself.

Nate over at http://www.nateedmondson.com wrote that “A ‘God thing’ is when something happens that can’t be explained and it becomes apparent that God was behind the scenes working everything out. Real God things are very incredible and can really change people’s perspective on who God is, but I think the church as a whole has started to become too quick to label stuff “God things”.

There was an event that had been planned for months and about a week or so before a few details hadn’t been worked out yet. Thankfully everything ended up working out and the event was a success. After the event was underway and all systems were functional one of the leaders of this event made the statement, “man.. it’s just really a God thing. We had a lot of last minute details fall through on us and I’m just so pleased God worked everything out to his glory..”

A God thing is when something unexpected happens and God works everything out in a supernatural, unexplainable way; not when the person in charge is lazy and neglects the responsibility that GOD gave them, and then manages to throw something together at the last minute and the final result is just ok.

God things are amazing miracles…not an excuse for poor planning.”

Spot on Nate….
