Things Fortuitous And Casual

images-134.  Of things fortuitous and casual it is said, “And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hands, then I will appoint you a place where he shall flee.” “Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” “The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord.” “The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from the Lord.” (Exodus 21:13; Matthew 10:29, 30; Job 1:21; Proverbs 16:33)
