For a believer, I don't think things are coincidental. You've invited God into your life. When you pray, and He answers, that's an answer to prayer, not coincidence. God knows you better than you know yourself. He whispers, "I love you" in a million different ways each day. You just have to be sensitive enough to hear Him. His love, His grace, His goodness, His faithfulness, His mercy, His provision, His answers to prayers, His blessings. NONE are coincidence. Yes. As a believer, I think God is actively working in all of my circumstances. He is the Lord of all my joy and He is the Lord of all my pain.
Coincidences really have no logic to them. I think most t thinking Christians don't believe in them. It is a sort of "quick fix" approach. "I don't or can't explain what happened so I'll chalk it up to coincidence." That line of reasoning
I've really been wondering if it's a coincidence when certain things happen. I grew up Christian with a Christian family that had no end to life problems (which I wont go in to) and eventually I decided "The hell with God and all the crap". Almost immediately my life improved in multiple ways, including employment, finances, and personal health. And most of the family issues that were surrounding me throughout my life have also disappeared. My still Christian family members, the ones that still are, are the only ones still suffering through everything. Is this a coincidence?

I believe that is how God works. God is not all loving. Give and take is God's deal. You ask, you give. Balance is key.
You can't do whatever you want and expect a perfect life. God's law tells us three things are sins Rape, Theft, Murder. Murder is what it says in the Bible and murder is not the same as killing.
How can you walk past a homeless person laying over a building's exhaust fan and not feel pain? Give all you can, but nobody even the church should tell you to give a certain amount. God is with you, not a building.
Christians are who keep the homeless warm and fed, yet people have issues with them. You want another tax? Get off our asses (not directed towards you gurl).
Coincidences happen to everyone. As the Bible says, "Time and unforeseen occurrence befall us all." (Eccl 9:11) However, if one follows the guidelines set out for him in the Bible, God assures us that he will bless that one. We see this in many examples, such as Joseph. He went through many hardships. He was hated by his half brothers, sold into slavery, accused of rape, and thrown into prison. Did Joseph do anything to deserve these horrible things? No. However, he never blamed God, and he eventually saw the blessings of holding fast to his integrity. He was made the second ruler of Egypt because of his strong faith in Jehovah. Although Jehovah didn't completely stop all trials that Joseph faced, He helped him to endure them. As 1 Corinthians 10:13 tells us, "No temptation has taken YOU except what is common to men. But God is faithful, and he will not let YOU be tempted beyond what YOU can bear, but along with the temptation he will also make the way out in order for YOU to be able to endure it."
