God works in so many ways that sometimes gives us a surprising effect. Things happen without us expecting it to happen. Things that we may think it’s strange but it is because of the power and will of God. There’s no such thing as magic because everything happens for a reason and that is because God wants it to happen that way. God works in ways that no man can do and no power exists that is greater than Him.
