Somethings, God has pre-appointed for us and somethings He leaves for us to seek, discover and manifest ourselves.
From this passage, which has it roots in the book of Genesis, we can learn a few foundational topics the Spirit of God wanted us to know.
Things beyond our control include:
- Our family / ancestors which all go back to Adam and Eve
- When we born (thus why abortion is wrong by playing God and why following His rules are important…like a man married to one women as Adam and Eve were both created and commanded)
- Our boundaries for habitation. (I understand this limits of our free will. We are free to make many choice but not their consequences).
