Pleasant Outcomes and God’s Decree – Ezekiel Hopkins

Though changes may surprise us, yet they do not surprise God: but, as it is a great pleasure to us, to see our designs and forecasts accomplished; so, Infinite Wisdom delights itself to look on, and see all things start up into their place and order, as soon as called forth by his efficacious decree and foreknowledge. – Ezekiel Hopkins, “The Vanity of the World,” in Works, Vol. 1, 34.
