Was just reading Acts, in particular chapter1 verse 23. Perhaps everybody already knows this, but it just occurred to me.
They cast lots to choose who would take Judas’ place, and it’s the last time they cast lots – it was obviously a way that they sought to receive God’s leading on an issue. So why is this the last time? Well, following this they receive the Holy Spirit, so they don’t need to cast lots anymore because they have leading from within, instead of without.
Something to keep in mind if you are waiting for God to give you an outward sign. If you are a Christian you’ve got the Holy Spirit, so start looking for it from the inside.
