5 SECRET TRUTHS: IF GOD’S SO GOOD WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN?
5 Secret Truths: If God is so Good why do bad things happen?
Negative Questions and Mindsets we ask and tell ourselves and others:
Why God why? Why me? Why did God allow this to happen to me?
Why is life so unfair?
Untrue Mindsets and Statements:
Everything happens for a reason
God will only give you as much as you can handle
God did this to you to build your faith
I guess it’s Gods will
God must have a big purpose for my life because He has put me through a lot of trials and tribulations

That’s just my lot in life
Truth 1: The enemy hates us he is not worthy, redeemed or forgiven and we are and he hates us for that. The enemy comes to steal, to kill and to destroy our lives and our faith. Anything that matches that description is of demonic origin.
The devil and demons have zero compassion for us.
John 10:10 The enemy comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. The enemy sends storms God sends rain storms destroy, rain causes growth.
Mark 4:13-20 The Parable of the sower shows us that the enemy comes to destroy our faith and our lives. The enemy comes to steal the Word of God out of our hearts and places doubt in our minds.
Truth 2: God gave humans Authority, Dominion and Freewill Choice on this earth:
Genesis 1:28 God in His sovereignty made us managers. God is sovereign and He CAN control everything but by His own Word and divine plan for us He chooses not to. He chooses to give us freewill choices.
Could He take away our free will, He could be in full control but He chooses not to.
In Deuteronomy 30:19-20 and 28 God gives us the choices between life and death, good or evil and blessings and cursing. Because of the Freewill Choice God in an allowitive sense allows us to choose the thoughts we think, the words we speak and the actions we take. He is in a relentless pursuit of a relationship with us. Because of freewill people are allowed to make negative choices and thus those choices can hurt other people.
Truth 3: God enters into our experiences of life with us and is always present trying to guide us to life in Him. I asked God what makes Him sad? His Answer:
When My children use their Freewill choices to hurt one another with their words and actions. God enters into our lives no matter the circumstances with us everyday His heart hurts with ours when we experience pain and suffering as well as joy and peace. If you have had trauma or a times where you felt like God was not there for you ask Jesus to show you or tell you where He was in the room or during that time.
Truth 4: We have a part to play and an accountability for the choices we make. We have to subdue the earth and take dominion over our flesh and the enemy in our lives we have to do it through the power of God at work in us and His WORD.
Be careful not to give the enemy place in your life keep your heart clean and free of unforgivness, frustration, resentment, anger irritation and fear on a daily basis. Put your faith into action.
Ephesians 4:27 Give the devil no place

I also know people who use their phone to isolate and troll Facebook and social media 3 hours a day. Put The Word of God to work in your life!
Truth 5: Remember The Devil is a jerk and hates us he is an opportunist he will use anything he can to separate us relationally from one another and from God.
