Here is what I think; this is called FREE WILL. God has given each of us the freedom to choose. And the bad part of it is that our choices affect others, and we are affected by what others choose as well. Sometimes this is a good thing, and sometimes it is not a good thing. What a beautiful world it would be if we all made the right choice in every situation... but we don't.
There are some people who feel that everything is predestined (the choice is already made for you), I am sorry I am not so sure of that line of thinking… because if so, then we are merely puppets moved by strings … no freedoms. And honestly if this is how God “laid it out” (who else would have laid it out but God?) He did a bad job, in my opinion. I would think He would have laid it out to go a little bit better then this, don’t you think?
Now, I do feel there can be some overlapping of the two extremes (total free will vs. predestination) … a middle ground so to speak… where both may be working at different times.
I think God can and does from time to time step in (in response to prayers and our faith) to our world, especially when we ask Him. “Ask and it will be given you, seek and ye shall find…” … you don’t want to hear this anymore than I do BUT … many times we ask God at the moment we need something … “emergency prayers” I call them, when we should be having regular visits with Him because we love Him, not because we need something from Him.
If you want to live God’s plan, then become a God fan.
