    A Coincidence or the Hand of God?

    Many people debate the validity of the Bible. It seems like a fairytale, almost make believe: Like “How could that possibly happen?” Well, I had an  incredibly powerful experience two days ago that I know was the hand of God. It started off with a note on facebook: my boyfriend had also read the book The Language of God by Francis Collins, and he wrote a short note restating Collins’ argument that the first book of the bible, Genesis; which is the explanation of God’s creation of the universe, goes hand-in-hand with the scientific theory of the “Big Bang.” After decades of scientific research, they have found that the universe was completely black for approximately 150 million years before there was light. The very first line of Genesis  written 3,500 years ago is totally consistent with this:

    “…and the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.”

    And so I ‘liked’ his note, and decided to re-post it on my own wall, because I wanted to share the message. After the note was posted, some people commented that they believed in the book of Genesis, many quoted the Bible, and for the most part they believed in God’s creation. However, there was one person in particular that was very adamant on denying the legitimacy of Genesis- and even went on to challenge the specifics of the Bible and how they happened in chronological order, according to ‘scientific’ standards. I knew the truth, and that the beginning of the world was in the book of Genesis, and that science supports it, as many leading scientists agree. The morning after, my boyfriend also posted a few comments with additional support to back up what I was saying and help further God’s Word. In the meantime, I was getting ready to go to school and was packing my things to make sure I had everything. I got into my car, and headed on my way. I was driving, and accidentally got onto the wrong on-ramp for the freeway, heading me in the opposite direction of my school. I shouldn’t have made the mistake, and although I am new to the area- I had been to school three other times and knew my way. And so I got back on the freeway, heading the right way. I then merged onto the intersecting freeway, my usual route. I notice a bright red truck up ahead in the distance, and as I approached it, I couldn’t believe what I saw- The truck said ‘Genesis,’ including the engraving on the license plate!!

    I knew I had to take a picture to share on facebook because only 12 hours earlier I was posting about this! The odds are that I would see a car like this, on the exact freeway, are about 32 million to one. (Based on the number of registered cars in California.) And that’s not even counting the exact timing of it! It was truly an act of God, he knew I would share this story with you and hope that in turn, you too would believe that the beginning of the universe started with God Himself. 🙂
