The good news from Jordan Peterson, differs from the full Gospel one, in excluding explicit interventionist-God talk. Not then and Genesis, the basis for his talks, but here now and us. In the day to day. Makes sense in the context of the Bible Series intention. Explained in the Q&A, in one of the final two talks so far (XI or XII); from an evangelical Christian and perspective, how he might view his approach in comparison?
Won't try and repeat the answer but my reason for typing this -- discovery process aided by self-expression -- is, that I 'happened' to meet three separate people over the last hour. Is/was/this God?
Potentially intervening-directly and may want to talk, mmm-miraculously. Unusual and coincidence, or..? God, devils, or luck? Appreciate surprises that defy randomness are experienced by multitudes beyond church-folk. Encouragement pointing somewhere is the take and likely, for most broad-speaking believers in non-material-other, their most convincing sign and wonder.
So what's that all about?
Getting right to my plea and proclaim: Asking, is/was there, significance? One of the three, I was concerned due to changes in circumstances, might less likely-see, suffered the very recent death of his father whom he lives with and was glad to take my number.
This could be an easy tick and not such a stretch to leave when I did to go out, take a particular route, while likewise maybe, the person himself? The first met one, I wanted to see to selfishly deal with some shame. Thankfully caught them for a minute and could, make-signify, reassurance we happened to pass each other.
The last was a surprising outside of our usual regular occasions and few minute chat. Not knowing this person, could -- if decided to, speak to something said, in a conversation I had yesterday. Concluding God can put people together, if so...
AND So, here be, ever more needed revelation, and the 'engineering circumstances' quandary.
Moving myself, into little and not much people contact/at all, makes for being a little more stark and conspicuous? Perhaps though, this, the pertinent issue:
What is going on and the dangers of over, or under-standing, potentially haphazard and random incidents? Leaving off anymore personal disclosure, why would this make me think God-speaking -and- in some respects, an encouragement.
God gives us, in patient pursuit, the desires of our heart and struggling groans. These good for God, this always, good-best for us. If 1000 times I stood and got amazed at something presented, screaming 'being of God', not sure now, 100 were. Some of the rest may have been but...
The prerequisite for balanced and incisive discernment. Given what we don't necessarily apprehend or we appropriate. Grab and go right with. Take the opp. and not miss, or neglect to respond and sow.
In other words and trying to nab into a 'one thought':
All God can do, is limited by us. Sow, sow, sow and barely or less-so, circumstances matter. Chambers today; 'When once the surrender has taken place we never need “suppose” anything. We do not need to care what our circumstances are, Jesus is amply sufficient'.
That God wants us led by inward prompts, in a shower of Bible.
Time to turn the water on.
