Paul has no clue what his future holds, but Paul does know Him who holds his future.

Paul wrote this letter Philippians from prison

His future was up in the air. His life was hanging in the balance. He's waiting to stand trial before Caesar the king who was the most powerful man in the known world. He has no idea what's going to happen to him.

Is he going to live or is he going to die?

Paul has no clue what his future holds, but Paul does know Him who holds his future.

May 2 Philippians 3:7-14

But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
