We may throw the dice,
but the Lord determines how they fall.
On January 27, 2011, a young single mother of three boys won $21.5 million in the New York lottery. Here was the story of a hard-working single mom and some good luck finally falling her way; it warms the heart.
Now don’t take the fact that I mention a lottery story in today’s devotional as encouragement to go out and buy a lottery ticket or two. On the contrary, I believe spending money on lottery tickets is like flushing money down the toilet. So why do I mention the story? It is because this passage from Proverbs tells us that God already knows the outcome, no matter what choice we have before us. All God asks of us is to be wise in our decision-making. Whether it’s what classes to take next school year, what pediatrician to choose for our child, or what career path we should follow, we need to wisely think and faithfully pray through each decision that we make.
Whatever decisions you need to make today, think through the options carefully and ask God for His wisdom.
