We have never known for certain
What a future moment will hold.
Our estimates have been good.
Calculations fairly accurate.
But we have never known for sure.
The unborn child
The business plan
The video before it’s posted
We never know for sure the outcome.
If this year has done anything
It’s made it clear that our predictions have limits
That we are not sovereign.
And it’s scary.
This is, after all, the Information Age.
We are not supposed to be collectively caught off guard,
My father once said,
‘The number of things you do not know
Will always outnumber the things you do’.
It helps to remember that ratio
Of the unknown to the known.
Lest we imagine that we have somehow become
Predict, O man
To your hearts content
But we will never be Omniscient.
It is the LORD who directs your life
For each step you take is ordained by God
To bring you closer to your destiny.
So much of your life, then, remains a mystery!
-Proverbs 20:24 TPT
