It Is God Who Chooses Our Destiny

“The Lord has made everything for His own purposes, even the wicked for a day of disaster!” Proverbs 16:4 NLT

For example, God told the hard-hearted evil king of Egypt, Pharaoh, who went after the Israelites to kill them, but instead ended up drowning with his whole army in the Red Sea, the following: “I have appointed you for the very purpose of displaying My power in you and to spread My fame throughout the earth!” (See Romans 9:17 NLT)

“This message shows that God chooses people according to His own purposes!” Romans 9:11 NLT

That’s why the Bible says that, “God chooses to show mercy to some, and He chooses to harden the hearts of others so they refuse to listen!” Romans 9:18 NLT

Now we understand why Jesus said: “You didn’t choose Me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit!” John 15:16 NLT

So, it is God who decides to show mercy to whom He chooses! You can neither choose it nor work for it! (See Romans 9:16)
