THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

Who was the greatest lawbreaker in the Bible?

Moses. He broke all ten commandments at once!

*********************************************************************************************

Prov 16:33
The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.
KJV

*********************************************************************************************

The "lot" was a manner of making a decision based upon God's divine direction. Small stones (probably colored) were used. They were tossed into the "lap," and the manner of their landing depended upon the Lord.

This view expresses total dependency upon God, and the fact that He controls ALL things. Just think: if God controls the toss of stones in one instance, how much more does He control the entirety of history?

This thought brings a peace of mind to every believer. Yes. We do have part in the decisions of life. And, yes. We can make wrong decisions - particularly when we make them without prayer for guidance. But God is in ultimate control of ALL things!

This brings more significance to the statement Jesus made, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;..." (Matt 6:33)

God IS in control, why not LET Him be in control of every part of our lives?

Let's just confess it: most of the time we want to lead, and we fail to give God the lead! When we are worried and anxious, we seldom pray in faith; and "..without faith it is impossible to please Him!" (Hebrews 11:6)

Let us remember that our Lord has a "storehouse" for His children that is inexhaustible! His wisdom is beyond comprehension. And His love toward us causes Him to want only the best for us. If He remembers sparrows, He will certainly not forget His children!

"Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: ..." (Ps 55:22)

Ponder today upon His omnipotence and omniscience.
Let this bring peace to your soul and strength to your prayers.

Love ya,
