If every one has a role or purpose that god has planned for you?
Then How will I know that my role isnt to betray or cause suffering in Believers and non believers to bring them closer to god through suffering. Just as Judas had his role in betraying the son of God. Even Judas loved jesus at the start and had an evil influence for christianity. So how do I know or you wich path you take and where does free will come into play if god knows your plan already hence alpha and omega???????????

God planned for me to be a plant psychic. I rebelled and now I'm a health care worker.

God gives man free will to choose.Because He knows the ending, doesn't mean He took away your choice. God does not cause man to sin. We need no help to do that on our own.So, He doesn't need you to cause suffering either, satan has that covered.
I believe everyone's purpose in life is to be a vessel of Light to a dark dying world. One little Light can dispel great darkness.Look at Jesus's life, Gandhi's life..Mother Theresa,Oprah,Bill Gates, your own life, have you made a difference for better to someone less fortunate? Will the Light shine in you?
PS For all the poor & hungry children, God sees & cares. He wants us to see & care also and do something about it, instead of complaining. Each of us must ask ourselves, why do we allow the children of this world to suffer? What can I do to make a difference, what have I done to make a difference? Let God's Love & Light dwell within us & the world will never be the same!
PPS To one who much is given, much is required. When it is in your hand to do good,do good! Not just to family & friends, anybody can do that, but the less fortunate, the hungry, the sick, the widow, anybody in your sphere of influnence. That is our purpose in life. Shine!

God will force no one to sin. God can not sin. He has no sin so how could He force someone to sin? That would mean He is forcing someone to do things that He says are wrong, that He finds unacceptable, and that He is totally against. Would any sane person want to force his own kid to do things that are wrong? God knows right from wrong. He gives us options, He lets us make up our own mind...freedom of choice. If he forced us to do things, we'd be little more than puppets He might know ahead of time what choice we're going to make but He lets us make that choice. He doesn't force the choice upon us A teacher might know that a smart junior high kid will answer 10 when asked what 5 + 5 is. But the teacher didn't force the kid to give that answer. It's the same way with God concerning our choices in life. He knows what our answer will be but He doesn't force us to make the answer.

If you watch a movie for a second time you know what is going to happen but you are not influencing it. Since God is not constricted to our timeline He has seen the end and the choices you made while still allowing you to make them. What you speak of is called Calvinism and it is the theory that all is pre-ordained and we are just acting out our part. This is not what God says though - we are all free to choose our path and He is there to help if we ask. His plan is merely to point out what gifts He gave you so you can maximise your happiness and fulfilment.

Earlier today, someone else made the point that 40 thousand children die each day of starvation and aids. Yet, somehow, god has 'plans' for all the comfortable middle class bible-thumpers on this side of the globe. What arrogant, self-delusional idiots you all are. No offense.

God has written good and bad both but it is you who decides to choose the good or the bad.

Pretty cool question. Ask God himself and he will answer for you. He answers lots of my questions.
