Human Choice is Real
I'm reminded of how God dealt with faithless, adulterous Israel. Stubbornly, Israel cheated on God through its idolatries. Despite God's best efforts and stimulation, Israel remained sinful and disobedient to His will. God, the "betrayed spouse," let it be and removed His hand of blessing. "For all the adulteries of faithless Israel, I had sent her away ..." (Jeremiah 3:8). In time, such eventually led to Israel's destruction and suffering.
We're all free to choose. But someday, we must face God with our willingness or refusal to pursue His will and its accompanying consequences.
