Embracing Divine Will: The Power of Willingness

While we are assured that God's will for us is always absolute good, the true challenge with embracing this concept emerges when we are charged with putting it into practical application. Consider this scenario: you've committed to fasting, praying, and seeking God's guidance in a specific situation – such as a job opportunity that perfectly aligns with your desires and aspirations. A job opening appears that seems to be custom-made for you, with exceptional pay, enticing benefits, and an ideal location – essentially everything you've placed on your vision board. You've invested considerable effort to will this job into your reality. Despite your steadfast dedication the situation doesn’t seem to change. Your patience is running low. The feelings of self-doubt and fear are growing larger. In these times, how can you proceed? How do you cultivate unshakable trust in God's will especially when you remember the times of “instant manifestation”?

This phenomenon of “instant manifestation” seemed to bring about swift results, particularly in the initial stages of engaging with these transformative teachings. Yet, with deepened understanding, you've discerned a crucial distinction: the difference between willfulness and willingness. Willfulness tends to adopt a rigid and transactional stance, whereas willingness embodies a pliable, relational attitude. Embracing willingness not only opens the door to the miraculous but also allows for graceful adaptability. Your current job is to simply remain open to allowing God's divine work to unfold in your life. It’s not about the job or any other situation. You are being called to remember these words, "not my will but yours be done" (Luke 22:42). These words serve as a reminder that surrendering our personal desires to the wisdom of the Divine can lead us to outcomes that greatly exceed our immediate understanding. By nurturing a spirit of receptivity and embracing the unfolding of God's plan, we create space for remarkable transformation and growth. In essence, being willing extends beyond mere wishful thinking; it represents an active practice of faith and surrender that moves in us toward the realization of our highest good.
