Nobody, neither spiritual or earthly powers, can determine the inner desire, and man is given according to the inner desire. Read more:

Right will. Truthful knowledge.

8. August 1955. B.D. NR. 6328.

Accepting of faith teachings without thinking can never develop a soul upwards, for such a knowledge cannot be assessed as spiritual thought material, but it always just remains a world knowledge, although it concerns spiritual questions. Only what is accepted by the heart, brings about an advantage to the soul and a mental explaining of the content of a teaching is absolutely necessary for that purpose. And such a one will also give information to a man demanding truth, whether the teaching is in accordance with the truth or is erroneous. And for that reason every man can come into the possession of truth, when he desires it, for then he will think about everything, what is presented to him, and his spirit will direct him. But a thoughtless accepting also shows indifference towards truth - and the heart will remain empty, the soul will not benefit from such teachings. This explanation therefore proves to you, why the one penetrates deeper into a spiritual knowledge, while the other remains ignorant. And this explanation also proves to you, that the will must first become active. If the will for truth does not exist, then man remains in spiritual darkness, because nothing can be given to him, so he desires nothing. But the will is free. And the great spiritual darkness on earth therefore just proves, that men do not use their free will or use it wrongly, for they could truly stand on a higher spiritual level, because everything is given to them for their spiritual progress, so they just strive for it themselves, so their most inner thoughts and stirrings would like to be directed at the most important - to hear the truth. Nobody, neither spiritual or earthly powers, can determine the inner desire, and man is given according to the inner desire. Just as good as the desire can be turned towards worldly goods, it can also be directed at spiritual aims. Man himself determines this in free will, and the supply of truthful knowledge will not be guaranteed for him from the outside, but from the inside. But truthful knowledge will also lead to real faith. Therefore real faith is also the result of a rightly directed will. The opponent of God indeed does everything to direct exactly this will wrongly and by this means to eradicate faith. But favours on the part of God will always flow towards men in excess, so that they are not defencelessly at the mercy of the opponent of God. But to let the favours become effective, the free will of man must, on the other hand, become active. Man does not need to fail, for he is always helped on the part of God, to direct his will right, but for that reason he must also take responsibility for his free will. For in the end it is about the passing of his test of will in earth life, and God demands nothing of men, what they could not fulfil - but their will decides.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6328.
