God is sovereign over the lots

In Joshua 18-19 we read that Joshua called together the people of Israel to divide up the land, the land that “lay subdued before them.” What method did Joshua use?  He cast lots.  Rolled the dice. Really? Yes.

“Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the Lord. And there Joshua apportioned the land to the people of Israel, to each his portion.” (Joshua 18:10)

“The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord. Proverbs 16:33

God is sovereign over the lots and over the dice. Every decision is from the Lord.  Every decision. No exceptions.
