James 1:18
18And it was of His [God’s] own [free] will that He gave us birth [as sons] by [His] Word of Truth

2 Corinthians 6:18
18And I [God] will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

Colossians 1:16-17
16 For it was in Him [God] that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him. 17 And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (are held together).

Isaiah 42:5
5 Thus says God the Lord—He Who created the heavens and stretched them forth, He Who spread abroad the earth and that which comes out of it, He Who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it:

Ecclesiastes 11:5
5As you know not what is the way of the wind, or how the spirit comes to the bones in the body of a pregnant woman, even so you know not the work of God, Who does all.

Genesis 2:7
7 Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a living being.

Whose idea was it to position you as God’s child?

These verses from the Bible, especially James 1:18 and 2 Corinthians 6:18, make the answer clear. As God used His free will to create you, God gave Himself a gift ― you.

Take a moment to think about the status in which God positioned you as He breathed His life into you.

From God’s perspective, the position in which God placed you is the highest possible position [position in the context of relationship] ― far higher than “close friend” and most certainly higher than “servant” or “slave.”

Said another way, your Father God used His own free will to position you as His child.

Romans 11:33
33Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unfathomable (inscrutable, unsearchable) are His judgments (His decisions)! And how untraceable (mysterious, undiscoverable) are His ways (His methods, His paths)!
