Not Knowing Is A Part Of Gods Plan

imagine living life know exactly what will happen all the time, knowing how the story will end before it even starts. Would you want to read a book with a spoiled ending? I know it wouldnt be much fun or interesting for me. I dont know if I will fall in love or get my dream job but that is the beauty of it. Its like eating candy with a surprise middle. Once you get to the middle its filled with new flavors and exciting effect on you taste buds. I really wish sometimes that I knew everything that God is going to do in my life but I also know that it is part of his plan that we dont know what the plan is. Will we live happily ever after? or will life turn for the worst? We dont know because we are not supposed to know. We would not learn anything if we just had our eyes on the ending. We would ignore things that are important for us. God has a plan for us and the biggest part of that plan is not knowing what it is.

You have an interesting take on life and God's plan for us. I agree that we don't know how our lives are going to turn out because that mostly depends upon the decisions and choices we make. However, the bible does let us know what God's purpose is for mankind. If you are familiar with the account of creation of the first man and woman, think about where God placed them to live. It was called the garden of Eden. It contained everything the couple needed to live in a beautiful park-like garden with plenty of good food and plants and animals to add to the beauty and enjoyment. The couple was told to be fruitful and multiply, filling the earth with their offspring to spread the garden of Eden throughout the earth. Do you think God allowed the disobedient couple to thwart his purpose for the human family? The bible teaches us that God did not create the earth for nothing (Isaiah 45:18). His word cannot return to him without results (Isaiah 55: 8-11) and nothing will stop his purpose from fulfillment. The bible teaches that God's purpose is for the human family to live in peace and happiness forever on a paradise earth. If you are interested in learning how you and your family can have this be in your future, let me know if you want more information.

Well said. Totally agree with you!

One of the best stories I've read!

Gods plans are clearly outlined. Titus Chapter 2:11-15<br />
<br />
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. <br />
15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
