Leah DiPascal made some valid points in The Secret Things*.
We don't know everything, because God keeps secrets from us. Now that I have learned more about God's character, I am sure that He does it for us. ["The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law." - Deut. 29:29]

There's been no one on this planet who knew it all (not since Jesus, that is). There are many who study, theorise, deduce, estimate, guess. Some have even been able to scientifically prove a multitude of facts & findings, but some answers continue to elude us.

There is such joy in searching for answers!

Think back to the last time you learned something new. Did it also leave you with a giddy sense of accomplishment? That joyous feeling is why I think He takes His time in revealing all His secrets to us.

Maybe you think this elaborate tactic seems like overkill - a lot of effort just to make us happier, but He sent His only son to die for our sins. He loved us enough to do that, so why wouldn't it be possible that He's doing this for us too?

If you could know everything there is to know right now. Today. What would there be left for you in this world? Would anything be new or exciting? What would there be to hope or dream for?
