God’s general will is birthed from His inherent and indomitable Word. Understanding the divine wisdom of God’s knowledge reveals who He is and what He desires from each of us.
It’s no mystery why we have been taught, abandoning our will to God is not an option for those who seek to be an overcomer for His glory.
Jesus who was and is 100% God and man said prior his arrest and brutal persecution in Luke 22:42, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine be done.”
There’s no doubt that the human will being surrendered to God is the foundation of the Christian life and yet there has never been a more unpopular subject.
In my opinion, the contradiction of wills starts and ends with power of the wills. God’s will is premised on infinite wisdom whereas the human will is prefaced on finite knowledge and with that being said, it’s obvious the former would be greater than the latter.
I could go on, but there’s really no need to pontificate this subject because whatever God set in motion before the foundations of this world will always come to pass. The major prophet Isaiah confirmed this truth in chapter 14 verse 27 and he said, “Nothing can stop God’s plan [will] for your life.”
My beloved brothers and sisters, God does not need our help to be responsible, but by saying ‘But thy will not mine be done’ we express that God is responsible and we declare to God in praise that God is responsible.
Undoubtedly, the most powerful prayers you can ever pray is, “God not my will, but let Your will be done.”
