There are many things I do not know. There are many topics I lack enough knowledge about to comfortably join in when those topics are in conversation. Regretfully, I sometimes speak and show my ignorance. But there are some things I know and some things I think we can all know. Here are four:
1. As children of God we know that there is a permanent dwelling for us in heaven. 2Cor 5:1 For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2. As God’s sons and daughters, we know that God is able to bless us through the storms of life. Rom 8:28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
3. We know that we are no longer our own, but now belong to the One who died for us, so now e live for Him. Rom 6:6 We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin.
4. Although we do not know what exactly we will be like in heave, we do know that we will be like Him and with Him eternally. 1Jn 3:2 Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
These are only four of many things God says we will and can know. Take time today to look up “we know” in your Bible. What a blessing God gives in providing us confidence by knowing Him whom we believe, and knowing that He is able to keep His promise to us.
