Word of Faith preacher, Bishop T.D. Jakes, of the Potter’s House in Dallas, TX, proclaims that God is at the mercy of our appetite, and our hearts, to do his will. In opposition to Romans 9:15-16 where it says
for he says to Moses, ‘I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.’ So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy.
He goes on to say “you can’t teach someone who ain’t looking, you can’t draw an illustration for somebody who won’t watch, and “that we are at the mercy of the appetite of the people….and so is God.” He goes on to proclaim that “as strong and as powerful as God is, he is at the mercy of our hunger.
