God is holding Himself back

Romans 11:26
Psalm 29
How much the Lord holds back His power to give us free will! With His voice alone, powerful enough to break cedars into pieces, He gives a command and nothing becomes a very big something (Gen 1:3). He could easily bring us all into submission to His will, yet He chooses not to. He chooses to hold Himself back to allow us to make our own decisions, including the decision to love and serve Him or not. Yet eventually His full glory will be revealed and everyone, even those who have rejected Him, will know Him for Who He Is, and will bow before Him (Phil 2:10).
Until that day comes you have a choice. Will you decide to submit to Him or will you decide to live for yourself? God is holding back His power, to not force you to serve Him as a slave, but to allow you to love Him as His child.
