  • We can accomplish plenty on our own for sure. But if you asked of God in full faith, not doubting him (James 1:5,6) on a specific problem, you can be sure he will help you (even if it's not the response you wanted!). I thank Jehovah for all good in my life whether it's on my own steam or not, as he is the originator of life and "every good gift and every perfect present" is from Him. (James 1:17)

  • that's completely personal and depends on what you want to believe. if something goes your way, according to your prayer/wish/etc, you are free to claim it as God-given. its all on you, kid.

  • God does not always answer in the way you want...but he does always do what is best for you. There is a plan for everyone's life. We also make our own choices.

  • OOOOhhhhh, you didn't. God doesn't work from luck. Lucks a myth. God works through his own powers or, his children. When you are in the right place at the right time.....that's God Almighty!

  • what about when you are in the wrong place at the wrong time? Is that free will?
