There is the world’s way of doing business and the Kingdom’s way. The Kingdom’s way operates by laws that are diametrically opposed to the world’s way. One of the world’s laws is the Law of Probability.
The Law of Probability states that the more odds there are, the fewer your chances of achieving a particular result. For example, if you are one of seven hundred writers submitting a story to a specific publisher, your chances of acceptance decrease. On the other hand, if you are one of seven writers submitting a story to the same publisher, your chances of acceptance increase. A one-out-of-seven probability is far better than a one-out-of-700.
But in God’s Kingdom, things work differently. In God’s Kingdom, your chances of achieving a particular result have nothing to do with anyone else. They have only to do with God’s will and your faith.
Jesus said, “All things are possible for the one who believes” (Mark 9:23). In God’s Kingdom, the operative word is “possibility” not “probability”. In God’s Kingdom, the Law of Possibility trumps the world’s Law of Probability and works for anyone who believes what God has said.
So, it doesn’t matter if you are one out of seven or one out of seven hundred. In God’s Kingdom, your chances of success are 100% as long as you believe His promise that with Him, all things are possible.
And that includes being a successful writer.
