It is possible to be the author of one`s own fate and have that fate be foreknown by God.

God gave the right to choose one`s path, but that path is unchangeable once a choice has been made. If you choose to do something, you cannot go back and undo that choice, it is set. By making that choice, you have directed yourself down an alternate route, which has more choices to be made, which in turn make your path twist and turn, alternating and manipulating your end position. There are many options but you only get one shot at it, and your path is irreversible. Because this path is irreversible, a being which exists outside of time and space would be able to see the outcome before you could.

In a way, you are running a maze of possibilities, and once you make a turn, you can`t back up and try another route, like in the coloring book. The paths themselves are constant, but your choices directing the route you take are dynamic.

God is not bound by analytical analysis or the laws of logic. God exists non-corporeally, beyond space and time. He has the ability to see that which has not occurred as well as all the possibilities that will never occur, because you cannot turn your pencil around and erase your lines.
