Unlike angels, which must do as they are commanded, G-d does all that He desires – in heaven and on earth, in the seas and in all the depths of the oceans.
Angels have no free will and obey G-d in everything they must do.
G-d has given us humans a free will to follow or disobey His commandments. How wonderful is this gift, for it is the way to establish a relationship with each other.
A relationship that is forced can never be a loving respectful relationship.
One of the things G-d desires is a relationship with us humans. When we enter into that relationship by loving Him and obeying His commandments out of love, we have a deeper relationship with Him than the angels.
