“Man, I was so lucky I was not standing where I had been. That thing would have fallen on me.” “I just happened to be there at the right time and in the right place.”

Those are the kind of statements we make concerning events that take place in our lives.  Maybe it was a close call. Maybe it was a desperate need we had. Maybe we felt alone and was ready to do something drastic. It isn’t unusual to hear people talk about luck or chance or happenstance. I do not believe in luck or chance or happenstance in the follower of Christ’s life.

Chuck Swindoll defines providence as

The events of our lives are not ruled by chance or blind fate by our loving Lord and Savior, who works out His plan and His purposes in the lives of all His children.

My sermon Sunday will from Romans 8:28-30, home of one of the most well-known, most-memorized and oft misunderstood passages in the Bible. There is some powerful truth in those verses and I hope to bring those truths out this Sunday. Your prayers would be appreciated.

  1. I don’t believe in luck, either, Bill. I’ll be praying for you and the sermon.

      I know you don’t Martha since we have talked about it before. Glad to have you believing in Providence. 🙂 Thanks for the prayers and coming by.

    It’s funny how non believers, when faced with overwhelming proof of Divine intervention, chalk it up to “unexplained phenomenon”.

    And they call themselves enlighten?

    Praying for you.
