The Providence of God is most amazing to me.
He showers blessings and calamities where He will, our seeming 'free' decisions serve His purposes, His plans.
How is it that Lot chose the valley of Jordan, leaving Canaan to Abram? (Genesis 13:8-13) Which, by the way, is precisely the area of land that God said He would give to Abram.
It is a small story, but it illustrates this attribute of God, His Providence, very well.
