The Whole Plan Of God Is Built On Free Will, Within Certain Limitations
The name of the game, this whole game of life, is choices, constant choices! God sets choices before us all the time & then lets us make our own decisions & operate within certain bounds.
God's Will is sort of like a tunnel. It confines us & restricts us to a certain area of movement & possibility. He keeps us within certain boundaries & limitations, but which way we go in the tunnel--left or right or up or down--depends a lot on us & our choice. There's a certain leeway & allowance for variations of choice in the Will of God as long as it stays within the bounds which He has set. And though we are allowed to find our way through the tunnel any way we wish, we should be making progress with each step & not going backward.
The tunnel always leads in the right direction! It always has a goal! And of course there's always the best even within the tunnel! When we yield to the Lord & let our choices be His choices, pleasing the Lord, delighting ourselves in Him, then we go His direction in the center of His Will, following that light at the other end of the tunnel! Thank You Jesus!
