If god exists why do we have control over our own life to the point of ruining god's plan?
Just enough one or two crazy rulers with nuclear weapons to end the human race, and bye god plan

i think people just make up what "god's plan" is and then use it as an excuse when things go wrong and get chaotic. in reality, i think the people are the ones who have all the control and god's plan is an illusion. (don't attack me guys it's just my belief)

God has to let us do good so he can bless and reward us. He can't be arbitrary about these things, because he is as bound by eternal laws as we are by natural laws. With me so far? He has to let us do good.
The problem is that the ability to do good is also the ability to do evil. God can't stop evil without also stopping good, and that would destroy his plan for our salvation and happiness. He has to let us do evil if that is what we insist on doing. God can normally step in only when entire societies become irredeemably corrupt.
God knew from the beginning that not all of us would cooperate, but he created us all with eternal life in mind in spite of that. At every stage of our existence, some of us rebel and lose the opportunity to progress.

Who Really Controls the World? Do you think it is...God?, humankind?, someone else? What the Bible says: "The Evil One controls the whole world."-1 John 5:19. "The Son of God came...to destroy the devil's work." - 1 John 3:8. What that can mean for you? Logical explanations for the world's problems. - Revelation 12:12. Reason to believe that our world will change for the better. - 1 John 2:17. Can we really believe what the Bible says? Yes, for at least three reasons: (1) Satan's rulership is doomed. Jehovah is determined to bring Satan's control over mankind to an end. He promises to "bring to nothing...the Devil" and undo all the damage that Satan has caused.-Hebrews 2:14. (2) God has chosen Jesus Christ to rule the world. Jesus is the complete opposite of this world's present cruel, selfish ruler. Concerning Jesus' kingship, God promises: "He will have pity on the lowly and the poor...From oppression and from violence he will rescue them." - Psalm 72:13, 14. (3) God cannot lie. The Bible plainly states: "It is impossible for God to lie." (Hebrews 6:18) When Jehovah promises to do something, it is as good as done! (Isaiah 55:10, 11) "The ruler of this world WILL be cast out." - John 12:31. TO THINK ABOUT: What will the world be like after its ruler is removed? The Bible answers that question at Psalm 37:10, 11 and Revelation 21:3, 4.Source(s): jw.org

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

The tragedy of billions of people thinking they have control over their own lives is that they are controlled by sinful desires and by unseen spirit forces out to deceive mankind, to turn humanity away from their Creator. The demonic forces play on the sinful nature we all have, being cunning enough not to let slip that they are pulling the strings. But God has told us about this, and how He acted in history to cut the strings for all who will turn to Him repentantly, and put their faith in what Jesus did to free us from our slavery to sin.
As for crazy rulers with nuclear weapons... just read what God had recorded about the future in the last book of the Bible, nearly 2,000 years ago and then rethink what God's plan actually is, for you don't know what it is, until you study His plan as set forth in the Bible. Revelation 16 speaks of various God-sent plagues on Earth followed by kings coming from the east, then 3 evil spirits that look like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon (Satan) and the false prophet. "They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty... Armageddon." Also:
"For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God's words are fulfilled. The woman you saw is that great city that rules over the kings of the earth." (Rev. 17:17) Think twice about whether you have control over your life, or not, for God is Sovereign and He will not be thwarted by puny humans or evil demons.

We can't ruin God's plan at all. We can only ruin how we fit into it.

Evil one is the ruler of this world.

Because God gave us the incredible gift of free will. Unlike animals, which can do only what they are programmed to do, and have no sense of morality, humans have the right and ability to freely choose whether to follow God's will, and receive the gift of everlasting happiness, or to reject His will, do our own thing, and thereby freely choose an eternity of absolute pain and horror.

Perhaps God's plan is for humans to kill themselves off when their earth changing job is done. A single species in a universe is a minuscule spec of God's supposed domain, right?.
