Coincidence, is it God's design or is it truly random occurence. Can it be Satan tool?

I have read many books in my life, and in our modern times seen movies, in which coincidence is often an imperative part of a story line, but is it real to life or is only in a scripted tale?  I have often heard that it is much more prevalent to our real lives than to the make believe lives of fiction. I am inclined to believe this is an actuality.  Just think over your own live and test the theory and you will find quite often it is the case.  It isn't always the catastrophic coincidence a book or movie makes it out to be but sometimes it is and in real live it is not a game, or a plot that will come to fruition in 380 pages or two hours.  Coincidence is sometimes a good and wonderful thing and sometime it can lead to unrepairable loss and damage.  Is coincidence truly random or is God's design, is it when God allows a trial or sends us a trial?

Coincidence in and of itself is not the culprit and in an of itself neither good or bad.  The problem with coincidence is it is often a harbinger, it is sometimes so odd and out there and brings people who are such disruption to your lives. You can be brought to such depths of despair and sorrow by its happenstance.  I have witnessed true heartbreak in moments of coincidence.  I think in those moments that the power of Satan has truly come to bring trials to lives.  God is the answer in these moments, we can't over come this kind of coincidence alone and I don't think that God wants or asks us too.  Sometimes people are truly the messengers of Satan and we forget that in our lives.  Only God can give us the strength to overcome these situations, and faith in God is the answer.

Sometimes coincidence can be the perfect storm and bring bad people and bad times to our lives. I think that the people that are truly evil and bring mean intent are rarely benign in their endeavor they plot and plan out their intent.  I would imagine that they are sad people with no true presence of God in their lives.  I think that they would fall into the category of people who are self deceived.

"The Bible also warns of self-deception (1 Cor. 3:18). Paul demonstrates self-deception saying: "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to the flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life" (Gal. 6:7-8). Frankly, we may deceive ourselves and others, but we cannot deceive God."

I studied and found the above words of inspiration from God. God is not deceived by these self deceived people, they have shallow lives that do no lead them to the light of God, they are not happy unless they are hurting other people.  I ask do they really not know what they do, not likely, true self deception is hard to accomplish.  You have to believe something and deceive yourself in to not knowing you are doing it. I know sometimes that is possible but it is more rare to be self deceived than to be self deluded.  Delusion in and of itself can be many things, it can be caused from true mental problems or simply having such an odd sense of reality that you see thinks askew, but that would be edging toward mental problems, so self delusion is maybe, or mostly, from people who are ill.  So is self illusion the culprit of a mean spirit.  How are they or any of us over come by self illusion? Is self illusion the way that people choose to not face reality or is it away of hurting other people and faining your innocence and belying your involvement? Is self illusion a part of the human condition? Is it a part of all of us? Is it a condition that in some is truly cruel and in other just not seeing that your child is not perfect? Is it a protective coating we wear or is it a sin we all share?....... tomorrow.
