Hi hey hello,
Happy Wednesday! As I was reading last night during my quiet time, I read Proverbs 16:33. In the NLT, this verse says, “We may throw the dice, but the Lord determines how they fall.” I LOVE how this translation puts it. We can go for something and have it all planned out, but in the end, God dictates the outcome.
With my college plans, I can plan and plan and keep planning, but God will ultimately put me where He wants me. If I am supposed to go to a specific college, God will open that door and close the other. Where God guides, God provides. God is in control, ultimately.
With my mission trip to Panama, it may seem like a big weight on my shoulders to act as a translator of sorts, but God is in control. He will give me the perfect opportunities. He isn’t going to give me something that is too much for me to handle. It may be more than I think I can handle, but God knows my real breaking point. He knows it all, so even though some decisions may seem like my own, they are in God’s hands.
We may throw the dice, but God determines how they fall.
