Q.

But the whole business of God sending Messengers with revelations surely indicates that humans are expected to listen, and then make choices, and then adjust their lives accordingly (Quran verse). God in fact revealed:
Truly, God does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. (Quran C13:V11)

This certainly seems to indicate that humans have the power to change through their own freewill, and these decisions alter their fates. PLEASE COMMENT ?

This is the program, the constitution and the law from Allah that leads to life without regrets, anxiety and confusion because in it is guidance for those who want to live a peaceful, progressive and prosperous life.

In this verse word KITAAB is used from root KAAF, TAA and BAA. The concrete root meaning of this root is mark, etch, engrave. Something that is written or as if embossed. The pages of written down laws that are put together or the laws that must be adhered to. The rule book. In the Quranic context, the Quran is a divine manifesto and a constitution with guidelines for legislations for people. The use of word AL-KITAAB in Quranic context shows that the Quran was put together by the messenger in form of a written book and its message was spread far and wide among people as a divine program for bringing people together so that a proper human community could be raised that was based upon divine constitution and regulated by laws based upon its guidelines.

This certainly seems to indicate that humans have the power to change through their own freewill, and these decisions alter their fates. It must be true that God does know everything and every possibility, but humans do not. Therefore, if a human chooses a particular thing, there will be a particular outcome leading to a particular conclusion. If the human chooses a different course of action, then the outcome and conclusion will be different. If you choose to swallow a whole bottle of painkilling tablets, you will die this afternoon; but if you choose to swallow only two, it may cure your migraine and you may live to be a hundred. God, knows all the possible outcomes but He leaves the choice to you. We cant understand it, but God can - His intelligence is millions of times greater and totally different from ours.

Yes. It becomes good business for the so called messengers.
People start revering them,
instead of God and their dictates are followed,
Not God's.
Poor God is left in behind.
