The first mistake ever made, the worst decision, the separation.
All because she couldn’t handle it. The hazy hidden glory. The secret unknown.
And she quivered, but admitted the truth of her heart. “Yes, it would be good to know.”
We all make decisions with all senses in good form. Or so we think.
We all want to know everything. We buy books, watch movies, travel anywhere our feet will take us, talk to everybody.
Because we want to know everything about everything. How exhausting!
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great thing to learn and to find out new things and to be curious!
But you can’t possibly know everything and that’s the truth. If you know everything, where is the wonder? Where is the surprise?
Our God loves the look on our face when we receive an unexpected blessing, the tingle of a surprise visit, the joy of a gift.
God has a plan for you. This is the thing you must know. A vital ingredient in the delicious Good News. He came for you because He wanted to save you.
He came to give you a good life, a full life.
That is ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW about the future.
This is your horoscope today, tomorrow, and will follow you to the ends of the earth.
He holds your future.
Forget your bank account, the unrequited love, the thankless job. That may be your past, perhaps your painful present. But you have a FUTURE.
I know you don’t know what exactly is ahead. Neither do I. And the human mind has kicked into survival mode and is preparing you for the worst.
Train your mind to focus on the promise of a good future. By the King.
I have struggled with deciphering the future, perhaps you have been afraid too along the way.
For the longest time, I sinned by stepping out of the spotlight because I didn’t know what I do now.
That God knows. I can love, adore, worship even sadden Him. But I can’t surprise Him. He already knows everything about me.
The falling hair, the half bitten nails, the stuffy nose.
The broken heart, the irritable lips, the hurried feet.
Can we leave the knowing to Him and the enjoy the growing?
That’s all He asks of us. A Mighty Glorious Perfect God. Who knows what is going to happen even before it happens.
You might be at a place where you don’t know how it’s even possible to move forward. Take heart because you don’t need to know. Someone who loves you has already planned every last detail.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
The unknown appears scary to our human minds. But if the One who made you already knows, isn’t that grace enough?
Your future is beautiful. Because the One who has planned it is exquisite.
So give up the worry, live a little and step into the unknown- It’s beautiful here!
