The Will of God
Hebrews 10:5-7
Why when he comes into the world, he said, Sacrifice and offering you would not, but a body have you prepared me:…

Socrates, when the tyrant did threaten death to him, told him he was willing. "Nay, then," said the tyrant, "you shall live against your will." "Nay, but," said Socrates," whatever you do with me it shall be my will." And a certain Stoic, speaking of God, said, "What God will, I will; what God nills, I will not; if He will that I live, I will live; if it be His pleasure that I die, I will die." Ah, how should the will of Christians stoop and lie down at the foot of God's will; not my will, but Thine be done.

(J. Venning.)
