Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny.

Ecclesiastes‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

So God will do to me whatever He has planned. He controls my destiny.

Job‬ ‭23:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

For God knew His people in advance, and He chose them to become like his Son.

Romans‬ ‭8:29‬ ‭NLT‬‬

We were claimed by God as His own], having been predestined (chosen, appointed beforehand) according to the purpose of Him who works everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His will.

EPHESIANS‬ ‭1:11‬ ‭AMP‬‬

In other words,

God chose us in advance, and He makes everything work out according to His plan.

Ephesians‬ ‭1:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Yes,

God decided in advance to adopt me into His own family by bringing me to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure. (See Ephesians‬ ‭1:5‬)
