The future is unknown. We can only trust and believe that the loving mind and heart behind it all is in total control. What a comfort.

But we must know the unknown. Not the future- knowing that is barred to us, but to know that loving mind and heart. When God walked the Earth, no one recognised who He is, and His person and purpose was unknown. Except for John, who wrote these words of Scripture. 

“among you stands one you do not know.”

John 1:26

We don’t need to remain unknown to Him, or He to us. He is revealed in the book of books, and if we read it with longing eyes we will see Him.
