Please keep praying for Connor Williamson.
My dad, who is good friends with Connor’s dad Eric, was at the hospital for the last few days with the Williamson family. He told me that in the last couple of months Eric and Cherie took out a special “life-flight” policy in case they had a motorcycle accident. Of course, we know now that the Lord nudged them to buy the policy for Connor, so he could be helicoptered out of the mountains above Fresno on Monday.
Now, you may ask, “Well, why didn’t the Lord just prevent the whole thing? If he could provide a life-flight policy, he could have prevented the accident.”
Yes, he could have. And we don’t know why he didn’t just prevent the whole thing. But we do know that something like a seemingly random insurance policy indicates his provision, and that whatever the Lord’s reasons for Connor’s accident, that it was not, in any way, an accident.
That provision is a reminder of who our God is. God’s purpose in this whole thing, however, remains still largely clouded to us. But we can be sure. We can trust: The Lord has a purpose, and his purpose is good, even if sometimes hard to see.
