“All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely” (1 Corinthians 13:12b, NLT).

Many countries spend a lot of time and resources researching everything from how to grow better crops to curing diseases to providing new energy sources. It seems we have an insatiable need to know as much as we can about everything and to continue improving what we have. It’s slow going and probably gets frustrating when the answers are elusive or it comes to a dead end.

At one time or another, a lot of us have said we are going to ask God some questions when we see him. There are just so many unanswered questions and we know he has all the answers. We no doubt couldn’t handle knowing everything about God or the universe at this point, but it’s comforting to know that God understands us and will one day satisfy our hunger to know all about him and anything else we want to know. He won’t leave us in the dark.
