Fortunate means favoured because of good luck. The word “fortunate” is derived from the pagan goddess of fortune in Roman, called “Fortuna”. However, she might not just bring good luck, she might also bring bad luck. She was sometimes being depicted as blind folded, in charge of turning a wheel of fortune. People who believe in her will sit on her wheel and surrender to luck, sometimes staying above and sometimes at bottom. Hence, through her wheel of fortune, whether a man gain or suffer losses depends on his turn of fortune; while fortune is blind, hence there is no say when will men encounter good or bad – all is left to chances!
When you turn your life over to God, you are no more living in chances of luck. Instead, you are living in His divine plan.
Psalms 37:23 “The steps of a man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way.” (NKJV) Your life is no more spinning around randomly, Jesus has you, and God is in control.
You can always expects good because God is good. Even in dire situation, know and trust in the goodness of Abba who has given us His only Son who has overcome the world for us.
Therefore, Walk in agreement with what God says about you, our hope is the bible hope, which is a certain and confident expectation of good:
Proverbs 23:18 “Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.” (ESV)
Romans 5:5 “Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” (NKJV)
Friends, this means when you know and believe that God loves you, be careful in what you hope for! Because what you hope for will always come true, it will always come to pass, and it will never disappoint you!
