I’m fighting a migraine headache – and reading this quote is not helping it! LOL! So, we should be glad we have bad luck because it’s protecting us from something even worse? Hang on, Sloopy… let me read that upside-down because it could make more sense that way.
You know, there are days when a train makes you late for an appointment, or a little family of ducklings need to cross the road and you wait patiently in your car for them to get safely to the other side. Those are seemingly obstacles that make you late and feeling crazy… but wait – maybe those are God’s way of keeping you out of harm’s way.
People who do luck will say it’s just worse than bad luck. Here we go, not giving any credit to the Creator. If I’m detained along the way, I try to take time to thank God for it instead of get all angry about it. That is easier to do since I don’t have a job to show up for, by the way. Maybe if those “obstacles” had not been there, something awful would have happened, such as a wreck.
The LORD keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. – Psalm 121:7
Do we believe in God’s promises? If we do, then we must also believe that His method of carrying out those promises could include putting an inconvenience in our path once in a while to save us from harmful consequences. Yes, He loves us enough to do that.
Luck is too random and wrapped in chance to even fathom that it has varying degrees… good and bad – good and bad and worse than bad??? What??? Pass the Excedrin Migraine… yeah.
Let’s call it what it is… God’s supernatural protection over our lives. How about going a step further, and thanking Him for it when we recognize it? I’m not always great at recognizing it, but I’m trying to do a better job.
I love that God keeps me safe and protects me against harm! I claim His promises on my life and praise Him for them.
And guess what? That is that for me too! I think the Excedrin is starting to kick in – great! 🙂
