Is God’s will Automatic?

“…the Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance…” 2 Peter 3:9 KJV [italics & emphasis mine]

We have all heard from time and again that what God wants will happen regardless. As a result of this line of thinking and belief, we live and leave our destiny to prayer and belief in God alone. We think and believe that somehow what God has planned and destined for us will happen no matter what, after all He is God, He can do anything including overriding my Will (right of choice)…right? WRONG completely very WRONG!

Whilst it remains true that God’s plan will stand regardless, your destiny relies 100% on you. The scripture above tells us that God is not willing for anyone to perish, and so He extends ‘the Grace period’ however, many will perish—why? they choose to ignore Jesus and his sacrifice. God never intended to take Israelites from Egypt and kill them in the wilderness, but their continued disobedience gave them just that. As believers, we have the duty to ‘discover’ God’s will for our lives-destiny (calling/assignment) and act accordingly in order to realize our purpose and destiny in life.
