God Gives Us Life AND Free Will.

God gives us life:
Zechariah 12:1
 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

God gives us life at conception and has a plan for us:
Jeremiah 1:4-5
 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5  Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

God defines for us what real success is in life:
Joshua 1:8-9
8  This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
9  Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

God expects more of us than our self-centered lusts, entertainments, or motives:
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
13  Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14  For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

God has given us all those things, to every human being, and He has simplified all the eternal questions we might ask by providing One Way, and only one way, for us to have a right relationship with Him. Our choice and destination are up to us, for all eternity.
