So I woke up thinking about whether God sees every evil happening in the world. The wars, killings, kidnapping, and more are all taking place every single day of our lives.
Where is God in all of this?
Does He has an idea of what is going on, and can He help?
The question is similar to a prophet called Habakkuk questioning God the same way about the evil in his days.
Sometimes, we need to wait for the right time.
Hab 2:3 EasyEnglish What I will show to you must wait for the proper time. But at that time, it will happen. It will happen as I have said. It may not happen for a long time but wait for it. It will certainly happen and it will not be late.
So, it’s likely that bad people will succeed in doing bad things such as kidnapping, killings, scams, fraud, etc., but those who trust God will survive, and God shall keep them.
Hab 2:4 EasyEnglish Look, the Babylonians are proud. The things that they want are not good. But righteous people will live by their faith in God.
God knows what is going on and sees every evil by the wicked.
God has a judgment day for all these evil people, and I’m sure He’ll bring them to due justice.
Hab 2:9-10 EasyEnglish 9 Some people get things for themselves by ways that are not fair. A sad time will come to those people. You build your homes high up so that nobody can take you to do bad things to you. 10 You decided to kill the people from many countries. Because of that, you will be ashamed. And you will pay with your own life.
Unfortunately, He doesn’t work according to our time and plan.
It seems like He allowed an evil man to kill or kidnap a little child.
God specifically told Habakkuk that the evil will not last long and that God will punish the wicked will surely in the end.
The reason God allowed the kidnapping and the wickedness and wars at the moment, I have no idea.
Bad things will happen, but I’m sure God will, and He can keep those who believe in Him safe through the time of trouble.
Hab 3:17-18 EasyEnglish 17 There may be: no flowers on the fig tree no fruit on the vines nothing on the trees that have fruits called olives no food in the fields no sheep in the hills no cows on the farms 18 but I will still sing praises to the LORD! I will be happy with the God that makes me safe.
He is God, and I’m sure He does what’s best and has given the earth to humans to rule.
Man chooses what to do with it and with the inhabitants of it.
