A question for both of you

How is prophetic fulfillment ever possible if God has to work around our "free will" decisions? Here is an example of what I mean.

In Genesis 3:15, we see the first promise of a Messiah. Speaking to Satan after the Fall of Man, God said: "I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel."

Thousands of years passed before Jesus was born. Consider the billions of human "free will" decisions that must have taken place over those years and yet Christ was born, lived, died and rose again, exactly as foretold by numerous (over 300) detailed prophecies throughout the OT.

I don't see how "free will" is possible. The only explanation that seems reasonable to me is that God is in absolute control of every particle and every decision made within this Universe and there can be no deviation from His sovereign will. Claiming the solution is His foreknowledge of our choices begs the question and makes a mockery of His sovereignty because that would mean He's forced to work around us.
