Everything God willed and decreed He did in the beginning. How could it have been otherwise? He is not like us, who decide absolutely nothing at our beginning, who need a lifetime of knowing and growing to - hopefully - choose and do the good. His wisdom, power, goodness, love have always been perfect from the beginning. These - and all the rest of who God is - have always been the basis of all His acts, all of which were decreed before there was anyone else.
