We introduce to you our huge list containing some excellent good luck wishes for exams. We hope you can use these beautiful wishes to.

The word ‘luck’ is very much a part of our everyday conversation. 

Christian or not, we find ourselves wishing others and ourselves success in the future...

  • We wish 'good luck!’ before someone takes a test or a new job.
  • We make statements like ‘it was supposed to rain during our game today but we just got lucky’.
  • We wish ourselves luck when we roll a dice in a board game or spin a wheel in an arcade.
  • We hope for luck to save us from getting caught when we engage in some rule-breaking activity like speeding on the highway or skipping homework.  

Obviously, the concept of luck is applied in a wide spectrum of circumstances from trivial statements to life-altering events, but is wishing luck contrary to what we believe as Christians?

What is luck?  

Lets start by defining the word ‘luck’.  Dictionary.com defines it as ‘good fortune; advantage or success, considered as the result of chance’. 

There is nothing wrong with hoping for success in the future—after all, we're all uncertain about future events, good or bad. But when we believe in luck, we are implying that future successful events happen randomly as a result of chance. 

The problem for Christians is, we can't believe in a God who is in control of our future all the time, while also believing that events happen randomly or that God himself is subject to chance and gets lucky.

They simply can't both be true. So, let's see what the Bible says...

What does the Bible say about luck?

There are some Bible passages that seem to imply that chance plays a role in our lives. Here’s a small sample:

  • Casting lots was a common practice among the ancient Israelites. It was used when difficult decisions had to be made. The high priest carried with him, Urim and Thummim (two precious stones) that he would pick at random when it came time to decide on important matters. In 1 Samuel 14:40-42, a lot was cast to find Jonathan guilty. In the story of Jonah, lot was cast to again find who was at fault for the raging sea. The idea with casting lots is not to let chance decide people’s fate, but instead to discover God's purpose or plan in a particular situation. 
  • Ecclesiastes 9:11-12 alludes to randomness in life. It reads, “the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor richest to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all”.  This is a profound observation about the apparent unpredictability in life by a wise king. If we stop reading the book of Ecclesiastes at this verse, we would conclude that events in our lives are controlled by chance but thankfully that’s not how that book ends. 
  • Ruth 2:3 describes the story of Ruth who “happened to come to the part of the field belonging to Boaz”, giving the impression that Ruth met her husband Boaz by chance. But again, the rest of the book sees that event as being under God's direction.

God is in control

For every passage in the Bible that seems to imply that our lives are controlled by chance, there are numerous others that affirm that God is directly in control of the events of our lives.

  • Proverbs 16:33 reads, “The Lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.” Casting a lot may seem random but even that outcome is from the Lord.
  • Isaiah 46:10 describes a God who declares the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done.
  • Psalm 139:16 talks about a God who has a book with all the days of our lives written in it before any of them came to pass.

And so, according to the Bible, events in our lives don’t happen randomly. They are all part of God's plan. 

Even our negatives are used positively by God

I think, if we're honest, most of our worries for the future are not about the good things that are going to happen to us but about the bad things. 

But the good news for Christians is, the bad things work out to be good at the end! That’s exactly what Romans 8:28 says: “All things (good and bad) work together for good to those who love God”.

It’s not the worst thing in the world to wish someone luck, but perhaps we could wish him or her ‘all the best!’ next time and pray for them instead.

Why shouldn't we say, "Good luck" to others to wish them success?

Tim MaasRetired Quality Assurance Specialist with the U.S. ArmyI would say that the key verse with regard to this question is Romans 8:28. As I see it, this verse does not deny the influence of the fallen world, our sinful flesh, and the devil in causing events that may seem adverse to happen to us. (To me, Jesus also seems to be saying this in Luke 13:1-5.) However, God is in control, and even such "misfortunes" happen only with His permissive will (Matthew 10:29). And God is capable of making those events (as unpleasant or even disastrous as they may seem to us at the time) to work together for our ultimate good, as long as we remain faithful to Him. From that standpoint, it would be appropriate (in my opinion) to ask God's care and blessing on someone, but not to wish them good luck, since that (to me) would be implying that things happen that are outside of God's control.

Kenneth HeckThe notion or concept of "luck" (whether good or bad) seems to have originated with the Greeks and Romans. The Greeks had a popular goddess named Tyche (Roman equivalent to Fortuna) who was associated with luck, providence and fate. Today these goddesses could be no more than demonic spirits, if they still exist. Rather than believing in the favor or disfavor of past pagan entities (whether intentionally or not) we should as Christians instead believe in the Lord's Prayer where it says "and lead us not into temptation and deliver us from evil." If we are led by Christ we are not subject to the whims of luck since "we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Rom 8:28).

Jim TumlinsonOne beggar leading others to where the bread isI really don't like answering a question with a question but here goes; Who said we shouldn't say "Good luck" to people? Perhaps if they are not a Christian and by one saying "Bless you" or May God bless you" or whatever seem religiously appropriate may actually turn them off. Our talking to people in a language they understand may actually bring them to God in ways religious verbiage may never do. Jesus spoke to the people of His time in a manner of which they understood, Paul and James did the same so why should we be any different. I do not believe in luck but will say to people be they Christian or not "Good luck" because for me I'm not concerned with what people think and they do not know what is in my heart when I trust God for their good. In many cases it is only a matter of words and how one chooses to define them IE; I wish can = I hope. Don't we for the most part tell our children to make a wish and blow out the candle on their birthday cake. That is not using faith, it may raise another question if it is not already on here: Should Christians celebrate birthdays? We can find some places in scripture where luck was referred to or something close to luck; Ecclesiastes 9:11 Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all. (Time and luck happened to them all?) Luke 10:31 Now by chance (luck) a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. 2 Samuel 1:6, Acts 27:12 Genesis 30:11 And Leah said, "Good fortune (Good luck) has come!" so she called his name Gad. There are other references that can be found throughout scripture and the one thing that can be found in scripture that is consistent with God and that is relationship. I believe God is more concerned with our relationship with him and others that He is not focused on our verbiage. If I can gain and maintain a relationship with someone be they Christian or not and do my best to show them the love of God I have done more than just use appropriate "Christian verbiage". Paraphrased; Jesus did say that if you find someone hungry and say be blessed and send them on their way as you have done to them you have done to Him James indicates that you say you have faith but I will show you my faith by my works, so perhaps God is more concerned with what we do more than what we say or how we say it. We can tell people how much we love them but they don't believe us until they see how much we love them. I would consider being more concerned with how much we love people and show them the love of God over what is "Correct or appropriate Christian" verbiage in order to make a difference in their life. Many times I have been told "Bless you brother" and then get a knife in the back but would prefer "Hey good luck man, I'm praying for you" Some phrases one may consider using are; Good luck, I'm praying for you I trust all will go well I wish you the best I'm sure it will be fine There are other ways of expressing our desire for good results or good things in the lives of others that communicates sincerity which in my opinion is what people are looking for. 1 Cor 12:31 But earnestly desire the higher gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way. Desire the HIGHER gifts 1 Cor 13:13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

100 Exam Success Wishes & Good Luck Text Messages to Loved Ones

christian good luck wishes

Want a present to wish good luck at hospital or for an operation? We have some great Get Well Soon gifts to send your message or prayers to a friend and loved one who is unwell and to wish them a speedy recovery from surgery

Did you know that, at one time, it was believed that if someone had some sort of illness, they could be cured by placing them on the beach when the tide was coming in? When the water receded, it was thought that the waves would carry away their sickness.

Speedy recovery wishes – get well soon!

Nowadays, this might sound strange, but lots of the “old cures” had some sort of logic behind them – even if that logic was simply a strong BELIEF that the designated cure would work. A lot of people have faith in their religion, and religious-based gifts wishes and prayers are as strong today as they’ve ever been.

Sending you all my thoughts and prayers

We have a range of such gifts in our shop to pass on your prayers and Get Well Soon wishes including a lot of  CHRISTIAN GIFTS OF FAITH  that are frequently given to wish a speedy recovery from illness, before surgery or after an operation in hospital.

The presents in our shop are gifts with real meaning, so whether you are looking for a small Get Well gift or one of a more religious nature like the Guardian Angel necklace above, for example, we can help.

Wish good luck on your surgery – the old way

Ancient beliefs (some religious, others not) and lucky charms and talismans still form a part of our lives – even for people who are not very superstitious or religious. For example, how many people still say “Bless You” when someone sneezes. According to an article in Britain’s Guardian Newspaper, this custom goes back to more superstitious times when a sneeze was believed to separate the soul from the body. To prevent the devil stealing the soul, Bless You was said to release the soul from Satan’s clutches and return it to its rightful owner. More concretely, it is said to come from the time of the Great Plague: As sneezing was one of the first symptoms and it was thought likely that person would die, “God bless you” was a suitable thing to say . . possibly in the hope that God’s intervention could save them.

But whatever someone’s beliefs, little gifts to friends and loved ones can pass on feelings and sentiments and encourage people to get well. The power of the mind (and of love) to heal the body is well-known, and what better way to express your love and concern for a friend or loved-one than with a small Get Well Gift to lift their mood.

Send a message to a friend before her surgery

See some  INSPIRATIONAL JEWELLERY  to pass on good luck wishes before surgery in our store.

Do you know someone who could benefit from a special little gift to encourage them to get well?

It is believed that a Get Well Soon gift for a friend or loved-one to pass on Good Luck wishes for an Operation / Surgery at the Hospital, really CAN help, and aid speedy recovery from illness too
