Free Will vs Predestination

Do we have free will or is everything predestined? The short answer is both. “Or does the potter not have a right over the clay, to make from the same lump one object for honorable use, and another for common use?” Romans 9:21

“So Joshua said to the people, “You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen for yourselves the Lord, to serve Him.” And they said, “We are witnesses.” Joshua 24:22

We chose and God choses, but God’s will is more powerful. Much like parent and child. A small child may crawl over to see an object, but her mother lift’s her up to keep her safe. The child has free will, but mom’s will has overpowered the child’s to keep her safe. So it is with us. God will keep us safe by bringing us back to life. We will have the ability to chose [everlasting] life or death.
