“Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.” ~ Psalm 147:5
I have a confession to make. I am a recovering know-it-all. I had the best of intentions. I wasn’t trying to be right; I just wanted to get the truth out there. So if somebody said something that wasn’t entirely accurate, I would correct them. Let me tell you – it doesn’t matter what your motivation is. People don’t like getting corrected.
So I’ve been working on it the last few years. And an interesting thing has happened in the process. The older I get, it feels like the less I know. And I’m completely OK with that. In fact it’s a very freeing place to live from.
We serve a God who knows everything. He knows how many stars are in the sky. He knows how many hairs are on your head. He knows the future. He knows me better than I know myself. And best of all? He knows what’s best for me.
So when he says not to worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will take care of itself, I trust him. When he says that no mind has conceived of the things he has prepared for those who love him, I believe it.
I’ve learned to let go of this idea of trying to know everything, and in that process I’ve learned to trust God with my future. Instead of trying to know everything, I’ve learned to focus on knowing God. The most amazing thing about our all-knowing God is that he wants to be known. We have the privilege of spending the rest of our lives – and all of eternity – getting to know him better. I can’t think of a better way to spend it.
