In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will
There is great joy and freedom when you realize that you didn’t choose God, but He first chose you! This great love is what every person faces when they come into the kingdom of heaven. God’s activity didn’t just happen at salvation, but this continues throughout our lives – God is working things out in ways that we don’t see. So take heart; God is actively involved in your life, both in ways that you can see and ways that are invisible to your view. Rejoice in that truth. Trust in His unending love.
