Many comments have been made in many posts about randomness and how God works through it. As the Proverb says, we cast the lots but God determines the outcome. Here is an article I came upon today that was illuminating along those lines, and written in an understandable way for those of us who are math impaired:
Many of the stories we read in the Bible seem unpredictable, sometimes even contrary to God’s will yet all lead to Jesus. Lots are even cast in the process a couple of times before we reach the end of Acts.
Has God worked in a random fashion to achieve his purpose in your life? I can think of several examples in mine, ranging from how I met my spouse to which one of millions of sperm cells had to do its thing to just exist as who I am, and who my loved ones are. Whatever your thoughts, this article is a fun and thought provoking read.
