We would all love to be able to know what the future holds. It would presumedly make life less painful and probably more profitable. Face it, we would buy a lot more lottery tickets. But that is why God doesn't allow us to "see the future". We would be even more selfish than we already are and we would also feel more independent and less dependent on Him. However, God does want us to "see" that He knows the future and that fact should provide us with peace which is much better than a winning lottery ticket.
Lord, thank you for protecting me from myself and thank you that you know the future so I don't need to.
