Fate is something decided at birth and that no matter what one does, people cannot escape their destiny.

Do you think everything that happens is"the will of God”?

2 Pet. 3:9: “Jehovah . . . is patient with you because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance.” (But not all respond to his patience. Clearly, it is not “the will of God” when some fail to repent. Compare Revelation 9:20, 21.)

Jer. 7:23-26: “This word I did express in command upon them [Israel], saying: ‘Obey my voice, and I will become your God, and you yourselves will become my people; and you must walk in all the way that I shall command you, in order that it may go well with you.’ But they did not listen . . . I kept sending to you all my servants the prophets, daily getting up early and sending them. But they did not listen to me, and they did not incline their ear, but they kept hardening their neck.” (Obviously, the badness taking place in Israel was not “the will of God.”)

Mark 3:35: “Whoever does the will of God, this one is my brother and sister and mother.” (If whatever anyone did was “the will of God,” then everyone would have enjoyed the kind of relationship with Jesus that he there described. But he said to some: “You are from your father the Devil.”—John 8:44.

When God created man he have them free will( or the freedom to choose.) So sometimes the things that happen to us are a result of the choices that we make. And because we are imperfect we are imperfect that influences some of the choices we make. Rom. 5:12: “Through one man [Adam] sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned.” (Imperfections, including inclinations toward wrongdoing, are inherited from Adam by all of us.)

Also sometimes events that occur are a result of Eccl. 9:11: “Time and unforeseen occurrence [“chance,” NE, RS] befall them all.” (Thus, not due to any foreseeing of a person’s life, but due to chance he may become a victim of unfortunate circumstances.)

And according to God's word the Bible this world is under the influence of Satan the Devil."We know that we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one."-(1John 5:19) Satan has the world under his control to a degree. That's why we see so many terrible things going on in the world today.

It's only by not knowing that our fate is deemed at birth that we can cope with life.
