This issue have been discussed deeply by the religious persons. And many people are still confused about the whole thing.
Life being predestined is the belief that events of history, past, present and future have been already decided or are already known by God, fate or some other force including human action.
Your life is not predestined by God. Your future is not planned out before you and your own decisions determine what your everlasting future will be.
Yes! there is an amount of predetermination in each of our lives, we call it destiny and fate but there are greater amount of free will to make it productive. Like motivational speakers always press on self discovery (the highest discovery one can discover on earth).
Now if finally you discover that music is your thing, you are passionate about it,you find peace in yourself anytime you think about it. Will you now fold your hands for things to work out on it’s own. NOT AT ALL. If some forces has already determined your future, then trying to take care of yourself is useless. Statistics show that people who take precautions suffer fewer fatal consequences. Carelessness can result in tragedy.
“I returned and saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift,nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.” (Ecc 9: 11)
Our life responds to our understanding, the more you understand the ways of life, the more you understand the natural process of life. The choice you make today determine your tomorrow, your tomorrow determines your destiny, your destiny determines the eternity of life and that of a nation.
Taken to its logical conclusion, the idea that God fore knows all decisions would mean that God is responsible for all that happens – including wars, injustice, and suffering. Can this be possible? A clear answer is provided by what God says about Himself.
The Scripture state that “God is love” and that He is “a lover of justice”.
Never forget “go ye into the world and be fruitful “. The choice is yours. You are responsible on how your life turn out to be as long as you are not a deviant.
