Frequently God wants only our will; He asks all, and if we were to refuse Him the least thing, He loves us too much to give in to us; however, as soon as our will is conformed to His, as soon as He sees we seek Him alone, then He conducts Himself with us as in the past He conducted Himself with Abraham who was willing to sacrifice his beloved son; when God saw Abraham willing to offer even his best beloved, God cancelled the request.
