Is God Willing?

4 Apr

When we inject the proviso ‘if it be thy will,’ it is always an acknowledgement that we are not praying the prayer of faith, but that we have a doubt in our own heart… When you pray for the sick and insert the proviso ‘if it be thy will,’ you are placing all responsibility of that healing on God and assuming absolutely none yourself.

    Not much of a god if he’s unwilling. But he’s put us ion charge and given us all that we need.
    The real question is

    are WE willing?
