The idea that one can decide all of the circumstances of one's life well in advance is fallacy. Life is forever changing, and being ahead of the game requires an ability to think on your feet. When you are faced with new and challenging circumstances, you have to be creative in how you respond to them, and how you view them.
Circumstances that ordinarily might demand a certain methodology, now require much more in order to be resolved. They also require the intervention of either a cross section of society, or the Supreme Holy Spirit Of God. The obviously more practical choice is the Supreme Holy Spirit Of God whose only motivation is to see you succeed.
