Think we may be obsessed with luck?
What’s that mean, luck? What is luck? One definition is: “Success brought by chance rather than by action.”
Luck? There is no such thing.
“One God and Father of all, WHO IS OVER ALL and through all and in all.” – Eph. 4:6 [emphasis added]
God rules over all things. He is through all and in all.
“For from Him and through Him and for Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen.” – Romans 11:36
All things are:
- From Him.
- Through Him.
- For Him.
That doesn’t leave any room for chance or fortune. We are not floating through space without direction and purpose. God ordains every single microscopic event that happens. Life is not a gamble. Nothing is a fluke. Events in your life are not superfluous or arbitrary.
“The lot is cast into the lap, but it’s every decision is from the LORD.” – Prov. 16:33
Every decision is ordered from the LORD. Divine power trumps luck.
Saying something is “luck” or “lucky” may just be a habit. Start a new habit! Instead of saying “You are so lucky,” say, “You are so blessed!” That’s way more accurate anyways.
May God’s Love be with you.
