What is my WILL?

Alma 12:17 — Then is the time when their torments shall be as a lake of fire and brimstone, whose flame ascendeth up forever and ever; and then is the time that they shall be chained down to an everlasting destruction, according to the power and captivity of Satan, he having subjected them according to his will.
There's so much in the scriptures about exercising OUR will, MY will. Will I choose the right? Will I harden my heart? Will I follow the Savior? But in the end, when all is said and done, what it really comes down to is God's will or Satan's will. Am I aligning my will with God's will? God's WILL is to give us all that he has, making us joint-heirs with Christ. Satan's WILL is to chain me down to an everlasting destruction with torment like a lake of fire and brimstone. Who would WILL that for themselves? Nobody would. But often it's hard to see the TRUE end when we're at the beginning. So I WILL to be selfish and sin and seek for MY desires, when in reality it is just Satan subjecting me according to his will. Or I WILL to follow Christ, to repent, soften my heart, and be blessed by his will.

WILL I follow Christ? He WILL bless me.
WILL I follow Satan? He WILL destroy me.
