"Yes" and "No" answers at the same time on the same issue questioned would be considered abnormal. However, we experience it daily. Saul allowed anyone to remove the reproach which Goliath constituted with some promises to whoever does, but when it was time to fulfill the promise, he backed because of the benefiting individual. Abraham loved the excellent services which Eliezer, native of Damascus who was born in his household rendered, but would not accept that it was enough reason for him to become his successor.

Some say survival, actually personal survival is the first law of life. It is natural to strive for survival under any circumstance and God have nothing against it. Jesus commended the acclaimed shrewd manager whose story He told in Luke 16:1-9. God expects that we use our earthly life to secure eternal bliss through living by unwavering faith in Him. The mention of Tamar, Judah’s daughter-in-law, Rahab the Jericho harlot turned member of the commonwealth of God’s chosen people, Israel and Ruth, a Moabitess among the matriarchs of mankind’s Messiah, teaches that adopting personal survival strategies is acceptable as long as they are done with faith in God.
The belief that every physical experience has a spiritual undertone reveals that everything is stage-managed in life. Long before Josiah was born, God sent a young prophet from Judah to make it know to King Jeroboam of Israel. And indeed, Josiah lived nearly 257 years later to accomplish the purpose of God. This means that God stage-managed to ensure that Josiah lived to accomplish His assigned purpose. Queen Esther stage-managed her husband, the Emperor, to get rid of Haman the Amalekite, the preserved the lives of her fellow Jews as well as made Mordecai the Prime Minister of the Persian Empire at the expense of Haman. Naomi and Ruth stage-managed Boaz to marry Ruth so that Boaz would continually provide for them. God stage-managed to ensure the Israelites left the Egyptian captivity with enormous wealth. Check out the desirability or otherwise of stage-management of events of life.
Much as Joseph’s older siblings must have been happy that God used him to save them and their families from dying of starvation during the famine of their generation, there is no doubt that they lived the rest of their lives with regret that they had made attempt on Joseph’s life earlier. No one is usually happy to have to depend on his or her enemy for survival at any point in time. Many of us are merely enduring the help and support we live on because we lack the preferred alternative. Most of man’s sources of joy have their allied regrets that he has to endure in order to enjoy the benefits in a sane manner.

What is your perspective in this regard?.... I did not ask for this life, or to live. Yet my life is being orchestrated. I had no say in my existence. Yet I'm being told what I must do. Why does my conscience trouble me so when I do wrong, and why does life keep making these demands on me, asking of me so many confounded questions? trying to beat me into a shape of a kind I know not; and do not want; punishing me when I refuse to be molded. Yet when I cry out there is only empty space, no one comes to my rescue.
