That I am the Creator and you the created beings is a necessity for both sides, and it is a fact that cannot possibly be changed, even not for Me. If I want created beings, I have to create them the way I want them, and no creature can be asked beforehand whether and under what conditions it wants to be created. It depends on Me alone how I want a creature to be.
9 Therefore, since the creature is a necessity of My will, and since, on the other hand, My will as the basis for a creature's coming into existence and being, also, a necessity for the creature – in this particular point, neither the Creator nor the creature have any special advantage one over the other. Just as I, the Creator, am a necessity for the created being, the latter is a necessity as a point of support of My will.
10 However, the situation changes considerably when the Creator wants His creatures to become free beings of independent strength and power similar to Himself. For then, the creature enters quite a different sphere of life. Through the free, living, powerful Word, the Creator provides the created being with a power of its own. By diligently and actively tending this, the created being can develop it to full maturity within itself and thus become a free being of independent power.
11 Only then does true meekness arise, being the sole means by which the created being can completely extricate itself from the compulsion exercised by the Creator. Then it is able to stand before Me, the Creator, as an independently living, mighty being, as if it were My second self. (Sunsets to Sunrises, chap. 183)
