In whom we have received an inheritance, having been predestined according to the foreknowledge of the One who works out everything according to the purpose of His will.
And so it comes to this: the impossibility of being outside of God’s will for us. I truly know nothing yet as I ought to know it (1 Cor. 8:1-3).
We scurry around full of our own importance only to discover that being part of a bigger picture is the only reality and that picture is being drawn by Someone Else. Thankfully that Person is Love (1 John 4:8,16).
There is encouragement in knowing that I am being caught up in the purposes of God. My constant change of moods or sense of what is important matters much less in that context.
In fact they don’t matter at all.
There are 3 ways of looking at everything. But this one – predestination – trumps the rest.
