Not By Chance


It Is Written, Isaiah 26:3, you will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
When we are children, we go through life without worrying about making any real decisions.  Most of us had parents that loved us, and wanted the best for us, and somehow we knew it.  As a result we were not aware of the world and its problems.
Years ago, when a child was in high school, they started questioning what they were told.  They didn't want someone making decisions for them.  As they drifted into young adulthood, they started making most of their own decisions, and learned the hard way that decisions had consequences. These consequences sometimes had mental or physical pain connected to them.
At some point they ended up being adults, with a family to take care of, and many other responsibilities in a world that was unforgiving, and downright cruel to the unprepared.
For most of us, life in general, seemed chaotic, sometimes disconnected, sometimes happy, sometimes sad, but always keeping you on guard.  It seems that most of the time, our best efforts ended in failure, while some other person succeeded with what looked like very little effort.  Life seemed unfair and cruel.
This is where the believer has an advantage.  If a believer looks back at his life, he can see were many things had to happen in order for something to work out.  At the time it was happening, many things didn't make sense. But when you look back you can see it in a different light.  Don't forget, God saw every single thing in your life before you were born.
Here's a little example I like to use to show you how the smallest thing can make a difference.  Let's use a lottery ticket as an example.  If you buy a lottery ticket let's say man number one wins.  If you don't buy a ticket then man number two wins.  This is how the smallest thing in life can affect every person.
There is a solid answer for a person to have a great life and it is a sure thing, even if something unpleasant happens now and then.  That answer is Jesus Christ.  Ask Him to take over your life.  If you sit back and trust Him, and ask Him to help you with your decisions, He will.  Just sit back and wait to hear His voice in your heart, and do it.  Trusting and following the Lord will cause you to have no regrets in later years, and your choices will bear fruit.  Have a blessed day.
Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
