DISSOLVING THE ADAMANT OF SELF-WILL

With what joy do we come to see, as all eventually must, that God, our loving Father, does indeed have a purpose and plan for His creation that includes each one of us. Not one is left out, not one forgotten, not one is superfluous in this all-encompassing plan. Each idea of God, infinite Mind, is necessary to the unfolding and fulfillment of this divine order, and each idea is obedient to this Mind, the one creator. Each one of us may know of a surety that God's eternal will governs man's true and only being, and that God's purpose for him is therefore actually being fulfilled. Confirmation of this fact is given in the words of the prophet Isaiah (Isa. 14:24, 26, 27): "The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saving, Surely as I [Mind] have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand. ... This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?"

That which claims to be able to turn it back is self-will, the product of belief in a selfhood apart from God. Mortal mind claims to make a mortal man, capable of steering a course for himself and impelled by restricted, selfish motives.
