The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.
In the Old Testament and up to the time of Pentecost, the casting of lots were a legitimate form of determining the will of God. The process seemed very much a matter of chance but God overruled to reveal His guidance. Today, the Word of God gives us a general outline of God’s will. When we need specific guidance in matters not covered in the Bible, we learn His will through waiting on Him in prayer.
