Metaphysical free will: My actions are not necessitated by the past nor are they random. I think this is the kind of free will that Christians have in mind, not a compatibilist version.

He is help us more. You don't place faith in him so yioiu don;t recognize what is his help. Also It's about learning stuff.

First step is accept Jesus as savior.if you have done that then activley trust him to guide you and provide. Then you need to develop a relationship and the center of that must be prayer, Pray and study
bible each day make time, find a group of believers who you feel good with.
