I Timothy 2:1-6

2:1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.

Let’s say I want to make a billion dollars. I can work, invest, and do everything in my power to make it, but that doesn’t mean that it will happen. In fact, its highly unlikely that I will meet many of the goals I set for myself. However, if God wants to do something does anyone doubt for a moment that He won’t. Of course not!

In this case, God wants to save all men and has already started the process this to be so. So, if God has a will to do something and we know that nothing in or outside of the universe can stop it, then it is inevitable.

Or, do we doubt that God has the will to do what He has set out to do?
