If everything happens for a reason and our fate and destiny are already determined, how can we have free will?
Are our lives predetermined by destiny or do we have the free will to map our own experience? The answer is Yes. Both are true.
Free will and destiny are not opposites. We tend to think of them as opposites because of our linear perception of time.
God and our inner soul or spirit view the universe outside of the influence of time and space. This is how God can be everywhere at every moment. This is why any one of us at any time can be given God’s full, undivided attention through prayer and meditation.
God is everywhere at every time. He is experiencing the decisions you will make tomorrow, the path you traveled yesterday and the thoughts you are having in this moment.
