“One of the commonest causes of weakness in man’s pursuit of the good life is the plaguing doubt, “perhaps it’s not God’s will”. The term “God’s will” has so long been considered in the light of a capricious and whimsical God of the skies who pulls strings to direct our lives like robots. We might be immeasurably blessed if we could eliminate the term from our vocabulary. Even a person who has gained a new vision of Truth may well be following an old concept by saying or inferring in his/her prayers, “if it be God’s will”.
There is absolutely no place in this picture for a hell of everlasting torment or for a person or force that would or could attempt to put you there. Nor is there any place for the thought that sickness or deformity or death or poverty or limitation of any kind is the will of God. The will of God is the ceaseless longing of the Spirit in you to completely fulfill in the outer the potential within you.”
Eric Butterworth, in “Discover the Power Within You”
