Blessed vs. Lucky

One of the insidious effects of evolution is that it inherently spawns an immense and false faith in luck and blind chance.  If it is true that in the beginning nothing did nothing to nothing and everything resulted therefrom, then luck and chance are the sovereign gods of this universe.  The number of people today who sacrificially worship at the idol of luck called “The Lottery” is staggering.  The number of people today who believe their situation in life is because of the disfavor of the idol called “Fate” is equally staggering.

Obviously, the Bible presents a completely different picture.  Because it is true that “in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1), how you live your life matters; your daily decisions and individual choices matter.  If  you want to be blessed by God, you will need to not walk in the counsel of the ungodly, or stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of the scornful (Psalm 1:1).  “Luck” has nothing to do with it; it is a matter of choices that you make.

If you want to be blessed, you will need to delight in, meditate upon, and submit to the authoritative law of God (Psalm 1:2).  God is and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).  Get rid of pining for your “lucky day”.  Sow to the Spirit and you will be blessed with the abundant life (John 10:10) and everlasting life (Galatians 6:8).  Be not deceived God is not mocked: whatever you sow you will also reap (Galatians 6:7).  Have a blessed day!
