    I have grappled with this issue before. God is sovereign and He alone is in control. His will is fixed yet He has given us free will. This would seem to be a contradiction. How can things be predestined by God yet “fluid” and subject to our free will and control? The answer to this question is a point of division between Protestant denominations. For me, both statements are true because both concepts are part of God’s Will. Our finite minds can not comprehend how this can be true, but that does not make it untrue. Jesus tells us that All things are possible with God. I can thwart God’s perfect will with my imperfect free will, but already knows the outcome. I believe our task is alignment not control. By faith we align our lives as best we can with His will and His ways and leave the outcomes to Him. Lord let it be so with me!
