Whatever is has already been,
and what will be has been before;
and God will call the past to account.
The mystery of God’s foresight lies in the fact that He has already determined every single event in our lives and that He has done it with utmost consideration of the fact that because He has given us free will, we will either be obeying or disobeying His commands. To every act of obedience, He releases blessing: to disobedience, he administers discipline enveloped by mercy and love.
