One really good description of this is the parable of the wedding feast. This king is putting on a wedding for his son and he invites all his friends, but they aren’t interested. Then he invites anyone who will come (even commoners) and he provides fancy food and fancy clothes for all of them. All he is asking is that people accept the fancy clothes he has provided for them. When one guy outright refuses them, he throws him out of the party. God is the king in thst story. Heaven is his party and the clothes are Jesus’ sacrifice to cover your sins. If you don’t accept the clothes, you don’t get into the party, which is a big deal. That is the reason for suffering. It reminds us that we don’t have it all figured out, selfishness comes at a cost, and we need God to make our hearts right again.

I think God’s Plan for us works on the principle of God’s own sovereign will. Not Machiavelli, the Italian official whom I think you reference. Good news for us is, that He loves us, and doesn’t treat us with whatever means towards us He feels is justified. “All have sinned, and fallen short of the Glory of God.” Romans 3.23. We all deserve the penalty of sin. Death. Romans 6.23. But the good news (which is the Gospel) is that “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5.8. Bible says Jesus Christ, “became sin for us, Who knew no sin, that we (you and I) might be made the righteousness of God in Him.”
