God is THE person; all personhood came from God, and as we are created in His image:
We know He has a plan, and He has a purpose for all of His creation. This is why we know, as witnessed by the Holy Spirit in us, the deep and great love of God, and Romans 8:28-30
28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first-born among many brethren; 30 and whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
This is why, therefore, we know our Lord and Savior cannot be manipulated, cajoled, or tricked out of His will.
We face victory and defeat with the same faith:
…I will exult in the LORD, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
"The consideration of these things has long engaged me to attend to this matter, with the utmost diligence and care, and exactness of search and inquiry, that I have been capable of. It is a subject on which my mind has been peculiarly intent, ever since I first entered on the study of divinity. But as to the success of my inquiries it must be left to the judgment of the reader of the following treatise." (Jonathan Edwards)
Glory to God in the highest!
