Why evil exists
By Bill Afthim
But for now, don’t ignore the evil – put it at God’s feet in prayer, use your free will to invite Him to intervene, & focus on the good.
The god of this age would love for you to focus on the evil, not only to distract you from the things God wants you to think about & do, but to feed a spirit of negativity; to depress you, cause you to be harshly critical, to cause you to repay evil for evil.
Almighty God wants you to respond to evil with love, grace & mercy, even as He responds to you. Forgive, bless, pray for those who do evil, as well as the victims.
When Satan brings up something you’ve given to Jesus, say “Not my concern anymore. I gave that to Jesus. If you want to talk about that – go talk to Jesus.”
Also, I’ve encouraged people to read Philippians 4:4-9 because it helps us to accentuate the positive. (Now I would extend that through verse 13 – a verse that makes a different point in content than it is often used for.) http://ref.ly/Philippians4.4-
Be blessed, know you are; bless God, & be a blessing!
