God is truly sovereign and has a plan for all of history but he has also truly given us free will. It is not easy to understand but can easily lead us to question if what we do matters. God isn't limited to our temporal view. One of the most mind boggling things for me is that our almighty Creator actually let's us help in his creation. Our prayers and works will change history. But God has already planned everything hasn't he? Yep. God has already determined the end result but he has given us an option of how to get there. We also have the option to accept his grace and offer to be a co-heir with Christ. God will not override our free will. He doesn't need to. What we do matters. That comes with beauty and pressure. Let us take the advice of Andy Stanley and ask, "Is this wise". Let us do everything to the glory of the God.
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. - 1 Cor 10:13
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. - Col 3:17
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. - Eph 5:15-16
