Definitions: (1) the personal exercise of the Divine free will; self-willed; (2) the all-wise choosing made manifest; self-disclosing; (3) self-determinative; the free interpretation of the original thought

Comment: The Creator respects his own decisions. God is the one Person with free will who completely understands the value of free will. Since he knows its value, he decided to gift us with free will as well. He will not stray from his own perfect decisions. He will never violate our free will. He will respect our free will even if we choose foolishly. Neither will he coerce or compel us to submit to his bidding. Instead, he has given us the opportunity to affectionately dedicate our will as a precious gift to him. We can decide to be in harmony with his all-wise volition.
