Please consider, the best Architect decided to build the biggest and most beautiful building.
He designed every event down to its minutest details which need to take place to complete the building.
He gives his builders the building design, which contains every event down to its minutest details.
The architect causes every event/ act, which events/ acts tailor made to each of his builders to complete the building.
IN THE SAME WAY WE ARE GOD’S BUILDERS
God designed the universe and this world, He Designed, Decreed, Foreordained and He causes every event/ act according to His design down to its minutest details which need to take place to complete His creation.
As we are God’s builders, for every one of us, God Designed, Decreed, Foreordained and He causes every event/ act down to its minutest details what every one of us need to do to complete His creation.
Without even knowing, we are God’s builders, every act we perform Designed, Decreed, Foreordained by God from all eternity and He causes us to do in order to complete the work of creation.
CCC 308 The truth that God is at work in all the actions of his creatures is inseparable from faith in God the Creator.
God is the first cause who operates in and through secondary causes:
"For God is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
Far from diminishing the creature’s dignity, this truth enhances it.
CCC 307 God thus enables men to be intelligent and free, causes in order to complete the work of creation, … Though often unconscious collaborators with God’s will, they can also enter deliberately into the divine plan by their actions.
Aquinas said, "God changes the will without forcing it. But he can change the will from the fact that he himself operates in the will as he does in nature,” De Veritatis 22:9. 31. ST I-II:112:3. 32. Gaudium et Spes 22; "being …
St. Thomas teaches that God effects everything, the willing and the achievement. S. Th.II/II 4, 4 ad 3.
There is a supernatural intervention of God in the faculties of the soul, which precedes the free act of the will, (De fide).
The Divine will is cause of all things that happen, as Augustine says (De Trin. iii, 1 seqq.).
The same is true for events in our lives. Relative to us they often appear to be by chance.
But relative to God, who directs everything according to his divine plan, nothing occurs by chance.
Hence if this divine influence stopped, every operation would stop.
Every operation, therefore, of anything is traced back to Him as its cause.(Summa Contra Gentiles, Book III.)
God Designed every our acts, includes the acts of every our sins, Decreed and Preordained from all eternity. – CCC 310, CCC 314, etc.
Nothing that is outside of God’s creating, sustaining, and governing will.
We FREELY will what God wills us to will, and we FREELY do what God wills and causes us to do.
As God himself operates in our wills, we are freely cooperating with His graces, without even knowing it.
