>But I haven’t at anytime been hindered in my will
But I haven't at anytime been hindered in my will, nor forced against it. And how is this possible? I have bound up my choice to act with the will of God. God wills that I be sick, such is my will. He wills that I should choose something, so do I. He wills that I reach for something, or something be given to me — I wish for the same. What God doesn't will, I do not wish for.
