moment in time

I like this statement by Rev. Derek Prince.

Romans 8:30, “Whom He predestined, these He also called.”
Now this is the point at which God’s plan comes out of eternity and into time. 
This is the point in our lives when we’re confronted with eternity.

Then he said ...

Romans 11:29, "For the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable."
God never changes His mind. 
He never withdraws His gifts. 
He never changes His calling. 
So you’re set in something that is totally secure. 

Occasionally, I look around and wonder what is it that causes people to choose each other.
And it gets scary when you see people unchoosing each other.
I suppose, as humans, we tend towards inconstant and indecisive minds.
But it's reassuring to know that God never changes His mind.

Romans 8:29-30
"And we know that all things work together 
For good to those who love God, 
To those who are the called according to His purpose. 
For whom He foreknew, 
He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, 
That He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 
Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; 
Whom He called, these He also justified; 
And whom He justified, these He also glorified."

Not only does He not change His mind, but He sees us through to the glorious end.
Yes, "dependable" makes itself heard once again.

Transcribing has its privileges. :)
