Your Lucky Day

Luck. It's defined as "the force that operates for good or ill in a person's life, as in shaping circumstances, events, or opportunities."

Let's pay particular attention to the word "force." What "force" is bringing good or bad into your life? 

It's not a random luck of the draw. For a person with faith in Christ, God's Sovereignty gives Him divine power over our lives and the circumstances and happenings we encounter. 

So then, you may ask, why do you (or someone you know) seem to be facing daunting trials or unexplainable events that feel like a lot of bad luck? Or, maybe you (or someone you know) seem to encounter blessing after undeserved blessing. 

It's not necessarily your lucky day. Or your unlucky day. God isn't raining on your parade and your search for a leprechaun with a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow may turn up empty. 

If you're in the midst of a trial - or a series of them - you can find comfort knowing He's holding you as you weather the storm. Once the sun starts to break through the clouds, you may find your rainbow - the glorious promise that He will never let the storm consume you. The reminder that He is faithful despite what you may be facing.

The "force" that drives YOU is His holy spirit in you. Even when you face storms and trials. It is His strength in your weakness and His peace in your uncertainty.

The "force" that controls the good and bad in your life is ultimately a part of the plan He has for you. 

So whether or not you're wearing your green today (rest assured I have my green striped shirt, emerald earrings and, of course, complimentary smokey green eyeshadow!) I pray today you'll not have just a lucky or unlucky day. Rather my prayer is that you'll get to know the Sovereign and Supernatural force of God's presence in your life, no matter what you face! Just remember...the rainbow comes after the storm!
