When I hear that I have to wonder.
So, if God has plans for each of us then do we have free will?
It seems to me that you can't have both, IF you are part of a plan designed just for you. That would make you the equivalent of a board in a project. You fit a certain place and you go there whether you want to or not. You are cut and shaped to fit a specific job, that's not free will.
We have a corrupt free will. We do not do God’s will for us. God’s will is revealed in the Ten Commandments, or can be summed up very simply as is recorded in the New Testament “Love God above all and your neighbor as yourself.”
The Ten Commandments et al are part of the Will of God’s Command, in other words what we are supposed to do. What we actually do is comprehended in something called the Will of God’s Decree, God’s foreknowledge of what we, with our corrupted free will, will do.
