• What is Chance? Devotional

    Romans 11:33

    Chance is a fine way of expressing certain mathematical probabilities, but in itself it cannot cause anything to happen. When we attribute an event to chance in science or elsewhere we are only revealing that we are unaware of every factor involved in producing the outcome. Instead of using chance to explain the unknown, we should instead confess our ignorance. When you are asked a question you cannot answer, humbly admit as much. View Resource

  • The Myth of Chance Devotional

    Proverbs 16:33

    As today’s passage indicates, even a random outcome in the casting of lots to make a decision is determined by the hand of God. Every seemingly “chance” event — a flat tire, running into a long-lost friend, a roll of the dice, the luck of the draw, and others — has a place in God’s good plan, even if we are unaware of His ultimate purposes. As you go about your day, remember God is using even “chance” events for your good and His glory. View Resource

  • God or Chance? Devotional

    Isaiah 45

    Read Amos 4:6–10; Hebrews 12:5–11; and 1 Peter 1:6–7. From these passages why might God cause “bad things” to happen? What should our response be when we are confronted with difficult circumstances? Work to recognize God’s hand in your affairs and praise Him that nothing is beyond His control. View Resource
