Luck or God, What Do You Depend On?

There’s so much talk about luck, today when people succeed others who didn’t will credit that success to luck or chance. Also so many people tend to justify their failure on the ground that they were doomed by bad luck, and therefore no amount of effort they would’ve put in could’ve changed the outcomes.

But does success or failure in life rest on being lucky or unlucky? Personally I think that our success in life depends on God, to direct our faith, courage, determination, efforts and skills to go after our dreams, because we have the power within us to create our own circumstances and set things to our advantage.

Success like most things we desire in life has a price and those who desire it must be willing to pay the price. But too often we realise that those rely on luck don’t think it worthwhile to prepare for success and pay the price for it. Instead they’re looking for short cuts and easy routes to get it.

Of all the successful people I know and those I have studied about, none of them ever attributed their success to luck – infact they never mentioned the word. And you shouldn’t too if you must achieve success in any area of your life.

So what then should we depend on if luck is ruled out? We should depend on God.

Believe it or not there is a God factor, and in my own life l have experienced it many times. Because there are times when after putting in all the effort and applying all the success principles I know, things won’t still work out.

Then suddenly, when all hope is almost lost things begin to align. And I bet someone reading this may confirm that they too have these experiences too. Those instances when you honestly know that nothing you did or could ever do, brought you this far.

It could only be God. So folks rather than depend on luck, depend on God to guide, direct and lead your efforts to success.

  1. Hi Vincent

    Excellent post. Thanks for sharing this reminder with us.

    I do agree with you that our success in life -as you describe it – “depends on God, to direct our faith, courage, determination, efforts and skills to go after our dreams, because we have the power within us to create our own circumstances and set things to our advantage.”

    I believe those dreams have been placed in your heart by God. That is what you have been created for and that is WHY you have those dreams. I heard someone saying that this is when a “good idea” becomes a “God idea”.

    But that still doesn’t mean it is going to happen all by itself. We need to take appropriate action to make those dreams manifest in reality. Once again, as you say, it has nothing to do with luck.

    1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts here Jaco. I particularly like the phrase …”a good idea becomes a God idea.”And yes without action our dreams even though backed by God can’t be realized.
