As I posted a few weeks ago, I’ve really been struggling with my faith.
1. Is there a divine plan, or do we have free will?
2.If the answer is both, how do we figure out what we’re supposed to? Do we just pick A or B and hope we’re right?
You might say to just pray about it…but He doesn’t talk to me. So that doesn’t really help.
Basically, do I just cross my fingers and hope I make the choice He wants, and if not- fail miserably?
3.Also, if God sees our future before we are born, why does He choose to send people to Earth that will go to Hell?
4.Why does God make people intersex? Does He find it funny?

I believe there is a divine plan for each one of us, but we can choose to follow it or not. It's a really good question, and I don't want to pretend I know everything about it because I don't, but that's what I gather from reading the Bible.
As for your second question, I DO have the answer for that! 🙂 In James 1:5, God promises to give us wisdom if we ask. The thing is, we must believe we've received it, otherwise we'll always be stuck between two decisions, double minded, unable to move forward with confidence. Will there be times when we make a mistake? Of course! But God is so gracious he's not going to withhold his wisdom or blessings from you when you make a mistake.
(3)I have no idea, honestly. 2 Peter 3:9 tells us: ~ The Lord is not slow about his promise, as some think of slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish, but all to come to repentance. ~
(4) I don't have a straight answer for this one either. But there's nothing in the Bible that really speaks of it, as far as I know, so I guess they can choose whichever one they want. It's certainly not a sin to be born intersex, nor would I imagine it to be a sin to choose a gender in that situation.

1) There is a divine plan, which plays out once you’ve given your life to God. The thing is that you have to be willing to undergo it.
3)What I know is that He loves each and every one of us, which is why He created us, wanting us to live. We make our own choices, regarding whether we follow Him or not. It was all His plan and you just have to trust Him. I myself recently learned this. Revelation 16:7- And I heard the altar respond: “Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments.
4) I’m no expert on this ‘intersex’ thing, but all I know is that deformities in the body from birth are the result of sin in this world. All disease came because of it. And also, many mental disabilities are greatly affected by the lifestyle of the parents themselves, not necessarily because the child did anything. But, I don’t think you should take my word on this one. I guess the person has to seek God on what they should take on and possibly even ask for healing where it can be done.

“You’re all just puppets. Tangled in… strings… There are no strings on me.”
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. 🙂
