Why does God allow evil to exist on earth? And for that matter, why does He allow evil governments like North Korea to exist?
What if I told you that God has no choice and that He has to allow evil to exist on earth?
It’s true that God is the sovereign King and Ruler of all creation, but there is one big exception for now: our world. Satan is the god of this world. We are stuck with this harsh reality because God made a covenant with man through Adam, which was declared null and void when Adam sinned. Earth then fell under an angelic form of government ruled by Satan.
But thank God, we believers now have a new covenant and a new kingdom that is not of this world. The Kingdom of God is not an external one for all to see, but lives inside each believer. It will never be shaken or overturned.
Our King, who lives within us, has all authority and power and has called us to be His ambassadors of change on earth.
So, if we want to see change on earth, let’s quit waiting for God to do something first. He has already supplied us with everything we need.
“God does nothing but in answer to prayer.” (John Wesley, 1703-1791)
Today I prayed:
Lord, help us to believe that You can do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Based on Ephesians 3:19)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you?
Join with me on Fridays to fast and pray for prisoners, according to Hebrews 13:3.
