The Lot is Cast

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

This verse popped into my mind as I was thinking about the year that lays in front of us. It is a fitting verse. I can make plans, I can try to schedule things, I can act, but ultimately it is God who will guide and direct this year. He controls what happens in and around my life. Sure, I have free will to make my own decisions. But I cannot control when the sunrises or sets, I cannot control what the driver in the car next to me does, I cannot even control my heart beating. There are many details that surround my life over which I have no control, God controls them. I can try to plan out my year but God is ultimately in control. In a sense the lot is cast as I make my decisions for how this year should go, but the whole disposing is of the Lord. He will control this year and whether it is good or evil I wish to praise Him because He is in control and He is worthy of praise.
