Sometimes things just can't be explained

Sometimes, I wondered why God allows bad things to happen.  We may never know the answer to this question, but we do know that nothing happens without His approval, whether good or bad.  Proverbs 16:4 says, “The Lord has a reason for everything He does.  Just because we do not understand God’s mysterious ways does not mean He is unfair to us.  As the word says, in Proverbs 36:16, God’s decisions are always fair.  They are firm like mountains, deep like the sea, and all people and animals are under His care.  Job 34:11 says, “God always treats everyone the way they deserve, and He is never unfair.

The ruler of this world wants nothing but destruction for us.  We need to understand that God is always in full control of everything that happens in the entire universe, if He wasn't, things would be in complete chaos.  The scripture says, “From the very beginning, God has been in control of the world.”  He’s power is unlimited; and need no teacher to guide or correct Him, Job 35:12 & 36:12 respectively.”   We all know that God is not the creator of evil, but He is the Creator of everything that is good. In Genesis 1:31, God looked over all He had made, and He saw that it was very good!”  God knows we have limitations, and can’t do His will without Him.  Jeremiah 29:11 the Lord declares, “For I know the plans I have for you to prosper and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  
With all your heart and soul continue to trust in the Lord no matter what you are going through.  If you pursue Him diligently, He will help you climb high mountains.  When you pray, ask the Lord to increase your faith, and to help you grow, so you accomplish His will. 

Continue to Hope, for hope is what strengthens our faith, as faith gives us confidence and trust that God will bring things, what we hoped for, to pass.  Hebrew 11:1 says, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
