Yes we most certainly do! Why the skepticism?

Also, what does God’s omniscient ability have to do with one’s free will, please?

Let me clarify the way i see this question.

Omniscient = All knowing
Freewill = To make choices free from certain kinds of constraints

To sum up, if God already knows what my next action would be, how can i possibly change that? In other words, if God already knows what we shall become, how can we change or alter the course of our destiny? Does God's omniscience in a way connotes that every single event or action has been fore-ordained from eternity (Predestined)?

So how can we have free will?

Please enlighten me.

Is the free will, choose my way, believe in me or you will burn in hell? what is free about that will?
