Proverbs 16:33The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.”

Every problem is not up for us to solve! We ought to be looking to God who is the true determinant of our affairs. Yes, the lot is in our laps but we are not its rightful owners. Surely, the Lord is a better judge of His will.

  1. I interpreted this proverb in my novel about King Solomon to also mean that ancient Israelite judges when faced with long drawn out issues would decide to use the lot to obtain closure about the matter. They believed that since no one was capable to determine the outcome of the toss of a lot, that the out come was the decision of their God, Yahweh.

    Regards and good will blogging.
