Let us muse again today from Luke 1:7-9 and the family who God fills with the Holy Ghost and their background. We’re interested in Zacharias’s office of priestly ministry. The Bible says in verse nine that the lot fell on him. The lot in the Bible was not a thing of chance but the ordained purposes of God being worked out in the life of the believer. There were 24 orders of the priestly office orchestrated by David. Zacharias was in the eighth of the 24 orders called Abia. In each order there were a number of priests for the lot to fall on. The text tells us in verse nine the custom was for him to go into the presence of God and offer incense and for the lot to fall on him was very unusual. Many priest would live a lifetime and die having never had the lot fall on them. You would almost believe God purposed for Zacharias to be in the holy place this day and this very hour.My what a God we have that controls all our steps this day.
