Revelation 4:11—“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, for You have created all things, and because of Your will they were, and were created.”
Note 2 on will says: “God is a God of purpose, having a will of His own pleasure. He created all things for His will that He might accomplish and fulfill His purpose. This book, which unveils God’s universal administration, shows us the purpose of God. Hence, in the twenty-four elders’ praise to God concerning His creation, His creation is related to His will.”
Cross-reference “d” on will directs us to the following verse:
Ephesians 1:11: “In whom also we were designated as an inheritance, having been predestinated according to the purpose of the One who works all things according to the counsel of His will.”
