Most people think God is a dictator, or an autocrat. He does what he feels like. As if we have no control over what he does.
But the opposite is true.
Can you help a poor man in need without taking approval of God ? Can you get angry at someone without asking God ?
The answer is YES.
You can do both good and bad with total freedom. God has no role to play. So, God has given you full freedom. Because of this full freedom which you have in controlling your actions, we say that you are the master of your own destiny. You create it through your karma. God merely gives you credit, or debit (reward or punishment) in future based on your actions. He only implements. God reacts, you act.
God is a DEMOCRAT !
