The title of this blog post, “Roll the Dice” is a phrase that comes from gambling. A similar phrase is, “Let the chips fall where they may.” Both of these phrases were spoken to me today by a believer in God. I shared with my friend, who said them, “I don’t like either phrase.” He replied, “Why not?”
I know he meant well, but he was talking about a situation that he does have authority over, because God gave it to him. You see, when you are walking in the will of God, and He places you in a position that He wants you to have, and you pray giving the situation over to God, to be God in, then it is not up to “chance”!
Things will not fall where they may, or be decided by the roll of dice, or by any half hazard means of chance, but will work out for good for those who love God. This brings glory to God. His word says so.
“And we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose,” Rom. 8:28 (NET)
This verse is well known, so why don’t those who know it, believe it? And better yet, why don’t they live according to that knowledge? It’s powerful! Its life changing, and situation changing as well.
So the next time you are in a pickle, or dealing with a difficult situation, pray! Give it to God! Then walk with your head up, knowing, and trusting God has heard you and that it will work out just the way He wants it to in order to do a good and perfect work in the lives of all who are involved.
“Amen!” Now that’s good preaching if I do say so myself. Where’s the offering plate? This message is worthy of an offering!
