But that's a question God classifies "Need to Know Only," and He's the only One Who needs to know.
I believe God will answer our questions when we see Him face to face (1 Corinthians 13:12), but we must trust God without the answers here on earth (Hebrews 11:1-2).
Hebrews 11 talks about people of faith in the past who "did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting they were foreigners and strangers on earth" (v. 13).
There is some mystery in our present life, but God gave us this "Need to Know" promise: He will work all things for good for those of us who love Him (Romans 8:28).
That promise allows us to trust Him with the things we don't understand.
