” I am one lucky guy!” How many times has this tumbled from our mouths? To what does this attest? That in the on-going chance of things, my day came up and I won, I was spared; or a dream was answered.

We can attribute things to being coincidental, or that we can some days be predictably unlucky.

In any case, there is an unpredictability that would be unsettling to one who feels that we live a planned existence; and most certainly it is not entirely ours to own. In the case of the believers who exclaim;” There, but for the grace of God go I” there is a recognition  of someone responsible for results.

This example of credit looks back to an occurrence and settles the source for an outcome. In it’s own way, this is an act of humility that attests to the fact that first, we are not in control; and second, “it” was not an accident. A humble man does not get lucky, he is the beneficiary of God’s promises, and that not only covers what happened, but what might happen in the future.

As we might gamble and “get lucky” on the first attempt, or after many investments in the “faith of chance”, we wait unpredictably for our number to come up. If it does not, we move on to another day when another ghost may smile upon us; “Fortune”. We can be fortunate, but the source is real; our living breathing, and provisionary  God.

Can we then say; “We are lucky to have God”? No, not unless we concede the fact that every being is equally lucky. And, it happens daily into eternity.

And, that takes the gamble out of the whole thing doesn’t it?

There, but for the grace of God, goes mankind.
