Do You Gamble with God?

Also put the Urim and the Thummim in the breastpiece, so they may be over Aaron’s heart whenever he enters the presence of the LORD. Thus Aaron will always bear the means of making decisions for the Israelites over his heart before the LORD. Exodus 28:30

The Urim and the Thummim are of special interest. They were apparently two objects something like dice which were used in the casting of lots to determine the will of God.

Sometimes I ask God for a yes or no answer. I play solitaire on the computer. I say okay God if the answer is yes let me win three games in a row. After that I say okay God if the answer is yes let me lose three games in a row.
Sometimes I don’t like the answer, but in the long run it always develops that what He says is in my best interest. To have it work effectively you have to answer in sincerity and ALWAYS obey His decision and completely trust Him.

PRAY AND WAIT
I am not saying this is the only way to expect an answer from God, it is just one of the many I use.

I CERTAINLY do not use this method to promote gambling like:”Okay God, I’m going to gamble my wages at the casino. If you want me to be rich You will bless me with winning all the time.”That is a fools dream. You are not asking for direction in your life, you are asking your greed be satisfied, which with the gambling disease, it never will be.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God our shepard) please guide me in the proper use of the wise tools You have blessed me with to understand Your choices in my life. In the name of the Great Shepard Jesus Christ we pray. Amen

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
