How Does God Accomplish His Will?

How does God accomplish “His Will” in the world?  We are told that nothing can stand in the way of God’s will and that nothing will prevent God from bringing about his will.  When you think about God being this all powerful and all wise God, it seems like something that makes sense.  Of course, […]
