Actually, I believe it to be the opposite. I believe your view that we are at the mercy of random acts to be the view that is easy to fathom (even the non-believers adopt this view), and the view of Divine Providence to be hard to fathom.
I believe the view of Divine Providence to be the correct one, that nothing happens for no reason. I also believe that when it comes to Jesus’ Passion, this view will become more clear and more easy to fathom for those struggling with it.
Jesus to St. Faustina
Why are you afraid? Do you think that I will not have enough omnipotence to support you? (Diary, 527)
Do not fear anything; nothing will happen to you against My will. (Diary, 541)
Fear nothing; all difficulties will serve for the fulfillment of My will. (Diary, 624)
My child, make the resolution never to rely on people. Entrust yourself completely to My will saying, “Not as I want, but according to Your will, O God, let it be done unto me.” These words, spoken from the depths of one‟s heart, can raise a soul to the summit of sanctity in a short time. In such a soul I delight. Such a soul gives Me glory. Such a soul fills heaven with the fragrance of her virtue. But understand that the strength by which you bear sufferings comes from frequent Communions. So approach this fountain of mercy often, to draw with the vessel of trust whatever you need. (Diary, 1487)
I believe the difficulty for people with the view of ‘Divine Providence’ is that we cannot understand it and we never will until we are on the other side (thus we need faith ‘Jesus I Trust In You’). It’s like one of those sewing patterns where from the back it looks like a jumbled mess of random colored strings with no rhyme or reason, but from the front it all comes together to form a beautiful picture. As the strings, all we see is the jumbled mess, whereas God sees the picture.
It’s like the Matrix I believe, the blue pill and the red pill, if you take the blue pill, you can wake up and just go back to living as if you at the mercy of chance or random acts with no rhyme or reason, whereas, take the red pill and u’ll see just how deep the rabbit hole goes.
I hope this has helped.
