For many people, the phrase “God works in mysterious ways” is quickly becoming cliché. Having seen God’s miracles over and over and over again, particularly in science and technology, I can say with confidence that (a) God continues to work in mysterious ways in 2003, and (b) He is not afraid of using technology to accomplish His ends.
A while ago, I was really, really angry about something – I can’t remember what, so it must have been something pretty stupid – and I was certainly not behaving the way I should have been. At the time, I was listening to my computer, which I often use to shuffle and play the 200 songs I’ve ripped from my CDs and the CDs of my immediate family. Well, just as I started to begin getting really ticked off, “Wonderful, Merciful Savior” by Selah started playing. (You can find a sound clip at that page.)
Trust me, God knows exactly what He’s doing. He humbled me in seconds using nothing but Winamp.
