God and will

The difference God makes is not principally in being some power under our will, as if he were a technology we wield through prayer to accomplish goals, and whose success rate could be compared alongside medical interventions or science or whatever.  Were God this, we would have used him to destroy ourselves long ago.

God relates to will as measure and illumination without whom the exercise of power destroys us, and so much the quicker the more innocent, ennobling, wonderful and necessary it is to exercise the power.
