I have been seriously slacking with this new segment that I started and I am so so so sorry! I’m going to try to do better at it. So coming up with topics for this is a little difficult. I study God’s Word and I think… is this something that other people need to know? Well, of course! I want everyone to experience God’s Word and see just how amazing He is.
The topic I have today is… why does God let terrible things happen in the world? And this question is really difficult to answer because does He really ‘let’ it happen? I don’t think so. When God created Adam and Eve, He had this ideal world for us. But they were given one rule… not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And when she did, thus sin was created. Now, obviously we can say Eve, how could you? But as humans we are curious and the serpent tricked her BUT she should have listened and trusted God. So now sin is of this world and so many other things, like, sickness, disease and hunger. God didn’t plan for these things but they happened. So we ask why can’t God fix these things? Well He does. Prayer is a powerful tool and I have seen its power so many times. Does He plan for kids to go without food, water and shelter? No and that’s why He can send rain and we have mission trips. God has a plan for us and maybe that means going against our own plans but ultimately, His plan is best!
