Have you ever thought or even said, “Why did God let that happen?” Well, first of all, God only let’s happen what we let happen. What I mean by this is that we are the ones who really control how much God can actually move in our lives. Yes, He is the do-all, end-all but He won’t override our free wills. Therefore, He is not controlling everything that happens ion planet earth or in our lives. And everything that happens is not necessarily God’s will.
So, when someone asks why God let that happen, it’s wrong question because He was not the one who let it happen. We are!
Too many times, actually most of the time, people want to blame someone else for their misfortunes and a lot of the time they blame God, He is not the One who let or stopped something from happening.
Remember Genesis 1:26 where God gave Adam and Eve dominion over the entire planet? Well, things haven’t changed. Jesus bought back that lost authority and dominion and now it’s time for us to take our rightful stand in the Lord and take dominion over planet earth and everything that has to do with us.
Genesis 1:26 (KJV) 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
If bad things happen, we need to look at where we opened the door for the enemy to get access to us.
2 Timothy 1:12 (KJV) 12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
This verse tells us that God will keep those things that we have committed to Him. What have you committed to Him? What haven’t you committed to Him? These are serious questions that we need to ask ourselves.
1 Peter 1:5 (KJV) 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Ephesians 3:20 (KJV) 20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Notice that God keeps us by His power but it’s according to the power that works in us. And that means according to the amount of Word that’s in you because that’s where the power is – in His Word. Most people wouldn’t be able to fill a thimble with the amount of Word that’s in them. How on earth can they expect the power of God to work on their behalf if there’s no power working in them?
If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time, you should know that it’s the Word that you have to stand on to get results because the Word is where faith is and that’s how we please God and get results.
Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
By standing on God’s Word, we are protected, provided for, empowered, healed, delivered, and experience the victorious life that He has provided for us!
Psalm 138:8 (KJV) 8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me:
Philemon 1:6 (KJV) 6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 2:1 (KJV) 1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 2:4 (KJV) 4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
