God's Willing and Our Will

How does the Lord's willing affect our will?

God moves us to move ourselves freely. God's willing moves our will to freely desire what God wills for us. Because we are free, a wide range of responses are possible. Sometimes we experience our freedom with spontaneity and joy. At other times we find our freedom perplexing and painful. Yet, the lord works with each response drawing us, transforming us.
When we say "yes", the Lord incites us to deeper commitment.
When we insist on "no" God works towards conversion.
When we persist with "maybe", the Lord prods us out of indecision.
