 Divine Providence (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
In any case, most discussions of the seeming conflict between creaturely freedom and divine perfection have concentrated on the task of reconciling as far as possible the assertion that we have free will with the claim that God is all-knowing.
On the usual understanding, a subjunctive of freedom counts as true provided that, among worlds in which its antecedent is satisfied, there is at least one in which the consequent is satisfied as well, and which is more similar to our world than any in which the consequent is not satisfied.
On the present view, divine governance is a hit or miss affair, in which we can only wait to see whether a somewhat poorly informed God will manage to bootstrap his way to his objectives.

 Divine Providence and Chance  in Swedenborg Glossary by Leon James
They said that relatively to the Divine Providence man's own sagacity is like that speck of dust in comparison with the universal atmosphere, and which is relatively nothing and falls to the ground.
Divine providence works thus invisibly and incomprehensibly in order that man may in freedom ascribe an event either to providence or to chance; for if providence acted visibly and comprehensibly, there would be danger of man's believing, from what he sees and comprehends, that it is of providence, and afterward changing into the contrary.

 Providence and Divine Mercy in Kant’s Cosmopolitanism
and divine mercy are an antidote to moral despair, an assurance that “higher wisdom will provide the fulfillment of one’s well-intentioned effort” (6:101).
Philosophers, such as Kant, may need to posit some sort of divine mercy to make sense of how ethical cosmopolitanism could be possible, but ordinary people need not have any beliefs about this at all, as long as they are willing actively to promote ethical community.
As Kant insists in his discussion of the postulates of practical reason, this “moral necessity to assume the existence of God” or of divine mercy should not be confused with a “duty to assume the existence of anything” (5:125).
