Dr. R.C. Sproul has often said that there is no such thing as a “maverick molecule,” and Proverbs 16:33 is one of many passages that show this to be the case. What might look random and unplanned to us does not lie outside of the Lord’s sovereign control. He directs all things, which is greatly comforting. It assures us that He has a plan and purpose for every event, demonstrating that He can indeed work all things together for our good (Rom. 8:28).
