Where in the
world did such a phrase come from? Another
similar expression is “by chance”. Some say
it came from Shakespeare’s “The Merry Wives
of Windsor”. Regardless of where the phrase
came from, its inception has its roots in
how commonplace it’s now become to wish good
luck on another person. I can understand the
lost of this world expressing themselves in
this fashion because they either don’t
believe in God or they don’t understand the
foolishness of such statements. The question
is why Christian believers, in many
instances, express themselves as the pagans
do when they know there is no such thing as
luck or chance? Those of us who know and
believe God’s word know that only through
our God is it possible to receive blessings
of goodness. Wishing someone luck, whether
good or bad, has no place in a believer’s
mountains were brought forth, or ever thou
hadst formed the earth and the world, even
from everlasting to everlasting, thou art
Psalm 90:2. Luck is nonexistent. Luck
in any form is not of God. We don’t get
lucky. The dictionary describes luck as
“success that seems to happen by chance”.
Good luck, good fortune, chance, bad luck,
these are all derived from a pagan mindset.
In paganism God is replaced by a lucky set
of circumstances. Yet true Christians know
nothing happens by chance. This is how the
whole idea of evolution got started and
promoted to the extent that it is today.
People are overwhelmingly inclined to
believe in chance because they’ve been so
Those of us
who believe in an awesome God who created
the universe and everything in it know that
chance does not happen. Everything we know
and see was predetermined before the
foundation of the world. Jesus knew before
the foundation of the world that He would
die for His creation and He knew how He
would die. Imagine knowing something as
horrible as exactly how He would die and
living with that knowledge, as Christ did,
all the while watching His creation
continually rebel and grow farther removed
from Him with every passing day. “But God
commendeth his love toward us, in that,
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for
us.” Romans 5:8.
God knew His
creation would need a Savior so all mankind
could be reconciled to Him. Human beings
were at one time in a right and loving
relationship with their Creator, but mankind
rebelled against their Creator thus ending
the awesome relationship which began in the
Garden of Eden. Mankind could never expect
to get “lucky” and obtain a reconciled
relationship with God without God’s
intervention. Luck had nothing to do with
what Jesus did for us.
interesting how many words are associated
with luck, even a word like providence which
is usually associated with God, is a synonym
for luck in the dictionary. Divine
providence is not luck, but again we have
been programmed to associate luck with God.
Yet luck plays no part in God’s economy.
“When the boughs thereof are withered, they
shall be broken off: the women come, and set
them on fire: for it is a people of no
understanding: therefore he that made them
will not have mercy on them, and he that
formed them will shew them no favour.”
Isaiah 27:11. Believing in luck or
chance will play a very distinct role in the
lives of the lost and the consequences of
such belief will be severe.
Those of us
who are born again need to be mindful of
using the word “luck” or even the phrase “by
chance”. Anytime we use the word luck to
describe an emotion, or any other word that
relies on chance, we’ve just eliminated God.
When believers, in Christ, invoke the word
luck in their conversations instead of the
truth, God is quietly but instantaneously
relegated to a position not at all becoming
of who He is. Why do we do this? Our witness
becomes ineffectual each time we rely on the
word luck as a form of expression especially
if used during witnessing. Christians can’t
even bless one another when the word luck
materializes in their conversations.
you” is the response we who are “In Christ”
believers should practice and be unafraid to
proclaim. Even when speaking to unbelievers
“God bless you” is much more significant and
effectual than the phrase “good luck”.
Saying God bless you to a non-believer will
embed that phrase in their minds. We may get
laughed at or hear snickers behind our
backs, possibly even ridiculed, mocked and
scorned, but it may take nothing more than a
simple God bless you to jar those who do the
ridiculing into hearing the Holy Spirit.
fishing the other day and caught a big one;
man did I get lucky”. No you were blessed.
That fish was just another of God’s many
blessings which pagans refer to asluck.
How often do we take the honor and glory
from God when we insert the word luck into
our conversations? How often is God
marginalized by the vocabulary of His own
children? Think about it.
No, God blessed you. Why is that such a hard
statement to make? If there is no such thing
as luck, then there is no occasion to insert
that word into our vocabulary. Everyone
knows leprechauns are fictitious so how
would it sound if we gave leprechauns the
glory for all our blessings? “The
leprechauns gave me good fortune”. How would
God look upon His creation as they insult
Him with such a statement? Yet we do exactly
that with every utterance of “good luck”.
God that formed all things both rewardeth
the fool, and rewardeth transgressors. As a
dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool
returneth to his folly.”
Proverbs 26:10-11. People will travel
miles out of their way to reach a place
known as a gambling casino, they park their
cars and their brains outside, and as they
enter that establishment they are completely
reliant on the pagan idea of luck to win
money. Luck is what gambling is all about.
Yet, if luck is nonexistent then why do some
win at gambling? “...for he maketh his
sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and
sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”
Matthew 5:45. God’s ways are far
above man’s ways. Why He allows some to win
at gambling and others to lose is beyond me.
But I can tell you this, if you come out
ahead at gambling it’s because God blessed
you, God gets the glory, not luck.
Statistics prove beyond the shadow of a
doubt that losing is the order of the day
for the huge majority of those who submit to
such temptations. Why? Because God knows and
you know that there are much better ways to
use your funds than to throw them away at a
word luck wormed its way into the vocabulary
of the human race. I believe it is satanic
and should be avoided with extreme tenacity.
Satan wants us to believe in luck and by
doing so he’s eliminating God from our
lives. If everything that happens to us is
pure luck then God had nothing to do with
any part of our lives, thus He doesn’t
exist. This has been Satan’s plan from the
beginning. Get as many as possible to
believe that lie and they will forget all
about God, which is exactly what we see
being promoted around the world.
In its past, England once had a bustling Christian
culture. Currently though Christian’s make
up approximately 2 percent of
England’s total population (that
statistic can be found on numerous sits on
the internet). Why has this phenomenon
occurred in England? Because God’s enemy and ours
corrupted that island by convincing that
population that chance had occurred billions
of years ago and that God was not involved.
Sadly, every nation on earth is now headed
in that same direction, away from
Christianity and fully embracing luck and
Although America was founded on Christian
principles, that foundation has been eroded
through the teaching of evolution “chance”.
Everything we see happened by “chance” and
we are very “lucky” to even be here after
evolving out of pond scum. God? What God?
Chance and luck is our god.
The big bang
theory can be explained thusly: At first
there was nothing, and then it exploded. We
sure are lucky to have been in the path of
that explosion so earth could evolve and
life could appear on this meager planet, and
all because of an explosion out of nothing.
Never mind that scientists know that we live
on a knife edge; with the slightest
variation in atmosphere or temperatures life
could not have come about or currently
exist. But the Bible fully explains how this
all came about, and it could only have been
created by an all powerful God.
resources I’ve read lately, most secular
scientists don’t even believe in evolutionyet
they refuse to admit it in any public
setting because most scientists derive their
livelihoods from secular government funding.
Apparently they would rather remain in their
sins and not be accountable to God.
Evolutionary “chance” is now looked upon as
fact and taught as such in our public
schools, as well as in most schools around
the globe. Most people will attribute
evolution to the “luck of the draw” instead
of believing a loving and most merciful God
could have created everything just with the
power of His word.

try adding 0+0 any way you want, you will
still have nothing in the end. Life,
planets, or even the universe could not come
about without information, and only God can
supply information. Thus, only God creates.
God is responsible for life on this planet;
it was not luck stirring a pot of pond scum
that brought about life. “In the
beginning God created the heaven and the
earth.” Genesis 1:1. In the very
first verse of the Bible we see nothing left
to chance or luck. God gave Moses the words
to the first five books of the Bibleso
we who would follow would have the truth
about creation at our fingertips and nothing
would be left to chance.
I think by now
everyone can see that placing ones faith in
luck has had a devastating influence on
planet earth. Satan planned his strategy
prior to the fall of man and he has been
hard at promoting his agenda for the last
six thousand years. But God has His own
agenda, and of course it includes Satan and
all who follow him. They are those who will
one day be the recipients of God’s judgment.
Nothing lucky about that.

choose to believe in and follow Him will
have everlasting life. All who follow
Satan’s luck will have everlasting
damnation. So the question is, do you still
feel lucky or blessed?
God bless you
