  • Do you believe in luck?

    I was just wondering since i believe that sometimes things do happen just because you get lucky.

    Or perhaps, because God blesses us.

    Luck is a simple roll of the dice that favors your personal desire.
    A blessing from God is more directed and personal, from the source.


    Does God control everything directly?
    Or not?

    Do some things come under the definition of 'random chance'?

    I don't know the answer to either question.

    Perhaps both are true, in that paradoxical way that God works.

      Like, like chance, is just a word for something we don't understand.
      Do I believe in it? No. But, what do you, and I, mean by luck?

        I believe that luck is anything good or bad that happens to you by pure chance alone.
        Luck is even mentioned in the bible.
        Ecclesiastes 9:11
        I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.

          Sometimes I think If it were not for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all!
          My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16

          "Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)

            Well, I don't think anyone's going to disagree with that interpretation of the word 'luck'. That's simply anything unplanned that happens.

              God is in control and all is under his plan therefore 'luck' is governed by him. Thus, there is no luck only Gods authority.

              -Flavius Vegetius Renatus

                I used to think I got lucky once in a while - now I feel blessed once in a while...

                  No, I believe in the LORD's sovereign will!

                  Proverbs 16

                  33 The lot is cast into the lap,
                  But its every decision is from the LORD.

                    Amen! Great post, Josh! I believe that reference to "good luck/bad luck/getting lucky" is one of the top 10 things Christians should NEVER say - for just that reason - it is a denial of the sovereignty of God!

                    So, for example, we should say we are going to a Pot PROVIDENCE supper!

                      Nope. i believe everything happens for a reason. God's reason.
                      Why are you looking for love
                      Why are you still searching as if I'm not enough
                      To where will you go child

                        No I don't. I believe some people saved or not find favor where they walk. I believe it is a way God is speaking to people. Whether or not the person recognizes it is a different story.

                          No such thing as luck, so, good Divine intervention to you!
