Accidents don’t always happen.

As I was driving down to work a number of years ago,  I suddenly realised that for over a period of about 18 months l had not witnessed one accident on my journey to work. It then dawned on me that accidents only happen very rarely, and thank God that they are rare.

An accident can be defined as an event happening by chance – in other words, accidents are not planned.

If you are expectant for something to happen such as getting a new job, moving to a new home, whatever it is; the only guarantee that it will happen is if it is planned.

This may explain why some people have not won the lottery yet. The lottery is based on chance, a chance that may never happen.

We need to seek out the scriptures, and look for God’s way and His wisdom in the affairs of life. For example, if you desire to know God more, and you don’t take time out to spend in His presence and in His word, you are very likely to stay wishing for a very long time.

Let us do what we know how to do, and let us leave the rest to God – for nothing just happens.

We need to get up and do what is required to make that thing happen, if not we may stay wishing for a long time.

Write down what you want to achieve and have a plan of how you will achieve it. Then act on your plan.
