The Predestined Dice

The Predestined Dice…

The casting of lots in the Bible is a manifestation of the principle of chance, the rolling of the dice, randomness, as if everything is out of control.

Life often seems like that, out of control, happening by chance. And you wonder where God is in all of it. When Jesus was crucified, the Roman soldiers cast lots for His garments.

They cast lots, the principle of chance, everything out of control. And that is what it looked like. Jesus is being crucified, the Son of God is being killed, evil is triumphing and good is being crushed.

Where’s God in all this? The amazing thing is, even the casting of those lots was part of God’s plan. It had been prophesied a thousand years before in Psalm 22:18 “They cast lots for my garments.”

So too for your life. Even when things look out of control, and you can’t see any purpose, know that there’s nothing out of control. God will cause all things to work together for your good. For His hand of love is there, even in those problems, just as in the casting of the lots.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15

Take an area of your life where you don’t or have never seen the “why” or reason. Lift it up to God and thank Him for it, that He has a reason for good, even when you don’t see it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
