I know.

I’m in a season of ‘I don’t know(s)..’.

I don’t know what my future holds.
I don’t know what to do next.
I don’t know if I’m doing the right thing right now.
I don’t know if I’m going to make it through this season.
I don’t know if I’m making the right decisions.
I don’t know how long these funds will last.
I don’t know what is going on.
I don’t know when this pandemic will end.
I don’t know or understand what God has planned for me.
I don’t know what I’m doing with my life…

That’s a lot of ‘I don’t know(s)’. But I’ve realized I’m not the only one saying these words.
Everyone I speak to says the same thing to me – ‘Neeba, I don’t know…’.
It was the middle of the day when I went to God and uttered those three words, ‘I don’t know…I need your help.’
That’s when I felt God asking me what I do know.

I know my God is good.
I know God has a good plan.
I know God sees me and He cares for me.
I know God gave up His life for me and He will do anything to help me.
I know my God is faithful.
I know He will help me, provide for me and heal me.
I know the Creator of the world, the King of Kings, Jehovah Jireh, the Almighty God and the One who is in control.
I know nothing can ever separate His love from me.
I know His mercies are new every morning.
I know He will always show up in time.
I know that He knows me fully and sees every detail of my life.
I know God fights for me and He wins every battle.
I know my Father is for me and nothing can stand against me.
I know that all things are working together for my good and for His glory.

What I know and who I know matters far more than everything I don’t know.
And the things I don’t know are known by the One who fully knows me and died for me.

I’ll never forget the trouble, the utter lostness,
the taste of ashes, the poison I’ve swallowed.
I remember it all—oh, how well I remember—
the feeling of hitting the bottom.
But there’s one other thing I remember,
and remembering, I keep a grip on hope:
God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,
his merciful love couldn’t have dried up.
They’re created new every morning.
How great your faithfulness!
I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).
He’s all I’ve got left.
Lamentations 3:19-24

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Romans 8:31-32

You shall not fear them, for it is the Lord your God who fights for you. Deut 3:22
