God Is the Primary Agent

So the biblical view is this: God has ordained or willed or planned everything that happens in our world from before creation, from before time began.  God is the primary agent — the primary cause, the final and ultimate explanation — of everything that happens, yet the causal relationship between God and His creatures is such that His having foreordained everything is compatible with — and indeed takes nothing away from — their creaturely power and efficacy.
