The Lots Of Prophecy

4 May

The Lots Of Prophecy…

When Jesus was dying on the cross, the Roman soldiers cast lots for His clothing. Why was there gambling at this holy scene? Lots and gambling depend on random events, chance.

People often wonder if that’s what life is, the casting of the lot with no particular purpose or meaning. And with Jesus dying, the disciples must have wondered in the same way.

In the twenty-second Psalm, David had prophesied of the entire event, the Son of God being pierced and dying before his enemies. Even the casting of the lots was prophesied.

In your own life, there are things that happen that don’t make sense, even tragedies. There are times when it looks as if God’s purposes have failed and hope is gone. There are times when you say, ‘Why God?’

But whenever it looks that way, remember the crucifixion and the lots. It looked worse then. It was not out of control, not random, and not by chance.

For even the lots fulfilled God’s prophecy. In the end, it’s God’s will, God’s purpose, and God’s word, that prevails. For your life is sealed not by the roll of the dice; but by the blood of Jesus.

So Pilate decided that their demand should be granted. Luke 23:24

Is there something in your life that doesn’t make sense or you’re not at peace with? Today cast it, and any burden upon the Lord.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
