If You Are Depending On Luck Instead Of God, You Are Losing!

From the Editor / November 28, 2013
I hear people everyday who complain about their situations but continue to do the same thing and get the same results.  Isn’t that the definition of insanity?  How can you expect things to change, if you don’t do something differently?  How can you expect your life to be different, if you keep thinking that YOU can do it by yourself?  Those same people are quick to say,
“If it wasn’t for bad luck, I wouldn’t have no luck at all.” 
REALLY?  The problem here is that you are depending on luck and not GOD to make a difference in your life. Can I say that again?  The problem here is that you are depending on LUCK and not GOD to make a difference in your life!  Someone should be shouting AMEN right about now!
If You Are Depending On Luck Instead Of God, You Are Losing!
I have said it before and I will say it again, I am no Saint, yet through the grace of God, I have made it through some tough situations and I stand here today because of him.  We all fall down sometimes but if you keep falling over and over again, when are you going to get feed up and realize that you have to do something that you have never done?  When are you going to realize that this whole thing called Life is bigger than you and I?  Jeremiah 29:11 says,
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
God already knew what we would go through, even before we were born.  Jeremiah 1:5 says,
“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” 
He knew about the trials and tribulations that we would go through.  He knew that someone would have an addiction.  He knew that we would have children out of wedlock.  He knew that some of us would be liars and cheats.  He knew ALL of that, yet he also knew that some of us would have to hit rock bottom before we realized that all we had to do was believe in him to do what he said he would.  He knew that it would take some of us a short time, while others it would almost take their whole lives to figure out that all we had to do was trust in him and things would be better. Now there are some of us who will never figure it out and leave this earth not believing in God and that is unfortunate.  The thing is that it was never God’s intentions for us to suffer.  Yes, there are somethings that we go through in life that will test our faith in God but if we stand on his word, we will make it through.  Thank you, Lord!

Proverbs 3:5-6 says,

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.” 

Those of you keep thinking that you can do it by yourself…YOU CAN’T!  Stop living like an insane person.  Today, you need to give it to God and leave it there. It is time to do something that you have never done.  Do God and see what happens.  I promise you, if you have faith and believe and trust in him, he will make it happen.  Now, let the church say, “AMEN!”
