To persuade someone to follow God's will can be really traumatic for the persuader, especially if he is of a sensitive temperament. It would be difficult for him to pray that suffering be allowed, when necessary, in order that God may awaken the other person to His truth and grace.
When God says to us,
“Come on, it’s time to move on…”
He takes us personally by our hands and provides everything that is necessary for that trip.
"...Come, follow Me...and I will make you fishers of men."
"'Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life... what you will eat or drink...or...wear...Your heavenly Father knows that you need them.'"
"And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus."
