Roll the Dice

Proverbs 16:33 (New Living Translation)

We may throw the dice, but the LORD determines how they fall.

You only throw dice to make a decision when the options seem equally good. Chance comes into play when people are torn between two or more favorable choices. We can worry about which road to take when God is more concerned about how we take the road and what we do when we are on it. You are so concerned about making the right decision that you choose to not act at all. Indecision can paralyze you. Fear rushes in your heart. You feel defeated before you even start.

These thoughts are from the devil. God is big enough to get us to the final destination even if you take a few wrong turns in the journey. The Lord’s mercies are new every morning. Today has enough worries for you to encounter. Leave the long-term planning up to God. He’s better at it anyway.
