There are many things that I am confident of, but what’s coming next… are you kidding? There are too many times to even count when I thought I knew how something was going to unfold, and it happened completely opposite. I don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow – that’s why I live today.
Oh, but I’m still forward thinking. I even still like to see if I can guess how tomorrow is going to turn out. But my confidence in the forthcoming has shifted from my ability to predict to the stability and peace of God’s unknown known.
What do I mean by that? We don’t know what God’s plans are for us (think about what you thought you would be doing right now five years ago… has it all happened like you imagined?) – that’s the unknown. However, we do know that His plans are for our good (Romans 8:28, 31) – that’s the known.
There are good things ahead…
