Ephesians 2: 1-2

Don’t blame God.

As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the way of the world, and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. NIV

People don’t believe you are near when things are so bleak and dark. It’s hard for them to understand that if you are in control, and always with us, why do you allow the pain and suffering? They are wondering why you are letting these disasters, wars, tragedies, and all the evil happen. They feel deserted especially when it happens to them.

People do not understand that it is not your choice. God, you did not initiate these traumatic situations. It is about the free will that you gave each and every one of us at the beginning of time. You gave free will to Adam and Eve, and when you commanded them not to eat the fruit of the tree of good and evil, they chose to sin. The choice is ours. You, God, gave us standards to live by–statutes, laws, and commandments: it is our choice to follow them or not.

Satan is the ruler of the air: he is responsible for all evil and sin in this world. Always remember, Jesus defeated Satan when He died and rose again. Choose God– don’t blame Him.
