Elder Joseph the Hesychast: Knowing God’s Will

“Knowing the will of God is one of the most delicate and complicated matter of our lives, especially for those who are trying to find it through prayer. For although His will is revealed according to thy words: “Ask, seek, knock, and it shall be given to you” yet it requires patience, trials, temptations and [ascetic] experience, to extinguish man’s own will and passions that cannot withstand the inexpressible tenderness and sensitivity of divine grace.” – Elder Joseph the Hesychast.
