Not necessarily, though that could be the case. Or perhaps people just interpret [or perhaps misinterpret] it that way.
For example does water flowing downhill have a 'will' because it 'prefers' to flow in a certain direction or does it only SEEM to have that 'preference'? Before the discovery of gravity people understandably might have thought it had such a 'will'. Now we know that water flowing downhill isnt a sign of any will but there are other things that still seem mysteriously willful.
Does fire have a will? It certainly has behaviour, and quite complex behaviours at that; it can seem to 'metabolize', can seem to 'reproduce', certainly moves in ways sometimes counterintuitive and not entirely 'logical'. Does that make fire alive? If so is it sentient or even sapient? Can a fire have a will to burn? A will to grow? To spread? To devour/consume? To destroy? Or does it just SEEM to?
The apparent "Will of the Force" that some Force users describe in the GFFA might be a sign of a sentient sapient consciousness directing the 'action' of the Force as a personified entity, call it by whatever Name one wishes. Or it might be that certain Force users perceive/conceive of it that way, for convenience or easier comprehension of the INEFFABLE by sapient minds or other reasons of their own. Or maybe the Force might be Something Else entirely. Or even fictional - ;)
That imo is one of the interesting things that GL did with the Force from the beginning of the SW saga; he left much about the Force intentionally vague so that audiences could bring into/project onto it their own ideas of what it might be.
Maybe we'll get more answers in the upcoming season(s) or movies, or maybe we'll get more questions. I find either interesting. :)
