Sure, when you adress my questions. I'm sensing a pattern here.
1)Has God determined to grant belief?
I'm surprised you are asking me that question but the answer of course is a resounding YES !
1 Corinthians 4:7
7 For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive
? If then you received it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?
3For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.
But the fruit of the Spirit
is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness
, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires
8For by grace you have been saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
9not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God
the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe
in Him, but also to suffer for Him
2 Peter 1:1
Simeon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have obtained a faith

1 Timothy 1:14
of our Lord was poured out on me
abundantly, along with the faith
and love that are in Christ Jesus.
(faith is given out by God along with his grace)
- When he arrived, he greatly helped those who through grace had believed
(it is through God's grace that people believe)
As the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of God. As many as were appointed to eternal life, believed
