DAILY READINGS: Numbers 11:4-35; Proverbs 9:1-18; 1 Peter 1:1-25

And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas…and Matthias… and the lot fell on Matthias. Acts 1:23, 26, NKJV

Matthias was chosen by lot to join with the eleven disciples. What happened to Joseph, called Barsabas? Did he let anger and bitterness at not being chosen consume him? Or did he continue to trust in the Lord Jesus? Be patient, dear one. In the Lord’s perfect timing, He will choose you for His purposes (Eccl. 3:11). —Annette Baal
