Proverbs in 365 Devotions
Proverbs 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.
The Dice Will Glorify God
Is life on earth a happenstance; an accident… a fluke… a coincidence what?… Did it evolve from a big bang that stemmed from nothingness? Were we born on the continents and in the nations and towns and households to parents all by accident or is there a Mater plan far above our ability to fully comprehend that comes from o good and just Creator?
Many in the world believe in a God… a Creator even… some think that after creation that he stepped back and just left us alone preceding to do whatever he does. Some may believe the earth was a failed experiment by God. Others believe the Creator just doesn’t care about the earth, others say he is dead.
The Bible teaches us that God loves us more than we can imagine… So much that he gave his only Son and whoever delights in him as good news with joy is given life.
We don't deserve it so we can't understand it right?
Gods plan is seen throughout the pages of his word.
In Acts 17:26 the Apostle Paul says: And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, 27 that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us,
Though at times it may seem like from our circumstances and limited knowledge that God rolled the dice with the world and mankind; the truth is that he determined beforehand how that every which way the dice would fall will bring him glory forever.
Philippians 2 talks about how God in human form willingly died on the cross being paid the wages for our sin… he loved us that much:
Philippians 2:9 says: Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Yes on that great day God will be glorified in some context by every person that has ever lived.
Even though the Bible tells us how God is slow to anger and is not willing that anyone should perish, He is still God… He is still a just Judge and he will be glorified.
Father God, I pray along with other believers that people from every Nation will kneel before you now and glorify you by having faith in Jesus instead of glorifying you in judgment when it is too late for them to delight in your mercy.
