Joshua 14:1-2 says the promised land was apportioned to each one by the lot of their inheritance. Joshua 18 describes Joshua casting the lots. Lots were used on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur. The Feast of Purim means the feast of lots. Lots are a picture of something happening by chance, as with the rolling of dice. Sometimes the way things happen in the world and in your life seems like it’s just happening by chance and you don’t see God’s purpose moving ahead. Remember the lots of the promised land. It was through the casting of lots they received their inheritance.
If you’re following God, everything in your life, even things that look like they don’t make any sense, will be moving and working together in God to bring about God’s promises in your life. You don’t have to understand everything. Just keep moving forward, loving God, being faithful and know that everything in your life, even like the casting of lots, in God’s love, as you follow, He will lead you to your inheritance as a child of God in the land of milk and honey.
