Today is St. Patrick’s Day. Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!
What has luck got to do with your life? Let me burst your bubble and tell you, nothing. If you are into luck, lucky charms, or other superstitious practices to “bless” your life, you are wasting your time.
In my study of Isaiah so far, I keep seeing how God was so displeased with His people when they took on the practices of their neighboring countries adopting their idolatrous ways. These people were relying on the wisdom of sorcerers, psychics, and/or fortune-tellers in addition to worshiping idols of wood representing various gods.
God considered all of it evil. There was no shade of gray. A little time spent with a fortune-teller was the same as a lifetime of reliance on one. It’s kind of like being pregnant. You’re not a little pregnant. The pregnancy test confirms you either ARE or ARE NOT pregnant. You might be at the beginning of the pregnancy or nearing the end, but you’re pregnant. Get it?
Our days are no different than the days of Isaiah. So many are relying on luck, charms, gods, middle-eastern meditation, 8-balls, ouija boards, horoscopes, tarot cards, wican sorcery, wealth, prestige, good health, or just themselves to get them through life.
All the while, God Who reigns on high is frustrated in His righteousness with our feeble attempts to find satisfaction apart from Him.
Life is too short to be fooling around with your time here in preparation for eternity.
It’s time to get serious about your relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only way to God. Luck has nothing to do with it.
