The Lord KNOWS everything. Like the seeds that were known before man kind knew what they were God knew what they were. He knows what they will grow into, he knows that here are many seeds that look alike but serve different purposes. He knows the conditions in which a seed must need in order to grow. He knows the different fields, the type of soil needed, the amount of sunlight, the amount of rain. He knows the seeds lifespan and the purpose it will serve. The seed is planted, then it grows in its place. It doesn’t know why its there, its purpose, but God does. We are seeds, He knows our purpose before we do. He knows what we are capable of growing into if we just try and let Him guide our footsteps. We all look alike in the womb, because we’re a seed that’s starting to grow, but eventually we will get genders and serve a purpose. God knows that two seeds were identical in size and shape, until they grew (the oak tree and the pine tree) they serve different purposes. He knows the strength of which these seeds can bear. He designs your outcome based on the type of purpose you shall have. The bark of the tree is strong yet gentle in producing leaves. Meanwhile another seed grew into a soft stock of corn. So God knows what you can withstand, he knows your strength , whether you are that bark of strong wood 50ft tall and strong limbs withstanding seasons and bad weather or that corn crop that reproduces and feeds people. What I’m saying is like God has these seeds on earth to serve a purpose, we are seeds ourselves, he knows our purpose. No bad seed can bear a good seed. A rotten seed in dry soil and conditions can not produce anything but another rotten bad seed. Ask God to order your footsteps, but unlike plants, we all have a choice, to be the GOOD seed or the BAD seed. Be that tree, that still stands in the midst of Bad weather. If others fall around you, that means GOD placed you in an area where you are protected by his GRACE.
