If God Exists, Why is there so much Evil and Suffering in the World?

download (16)

You need to appropriate what God has already provided for you!

When people have a wrong understanding of God, and then something bad happens, they get mad at God and blame Him, or they question His existence at all.  I hear words like, “Why would a good God or any God allow these terrible things to happen?”

An ongoing question I hear Christians and non believers discussing, is the sovereignty of God and if He exists, why is there so much suffering and tragedy? Many Christians and other religions have explained this misconception by saying: “God is a mysterious God and you never know what He has planned in allowing suffering and evil, or there is a reason He has for this evil, sickness or disease and we may not understand yet.”  Or  “There are good reasons for God to allow evil and suffering, maybe it’s to let someone else know about Him, to build your faith and grow you! You never know who will get saved because of this evil and suffering!”  NOT!  atheists say:  “There are reasons why things happen!”  

God says: I have come to give life and life abundant.   Jesus came to save (Sozo= healed, prospered, forgiven, set free) You. “You Shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” His truth is all found in His Word, The Bible. There is ONLY ONE GOD and only one way to God and that is through His Son Jesus Christ.

Though there have been instances where people were saved because of some tragedy, God has a better, best, way to save people. It is through HIS TRUTH, HIS WORD and sharing the GOOD NEWS that saves. He came to save. The TRUTH sets you free. Not sickness, diseases and tragedies.  As far as building your ‘faith’? God says He has already provided all the faith we need, It is His gift to us as believers, you just need to appropriate what God has already provided. He has provided, faith, grace, salvation, health, prosperity, joy, forgiveness, freedom, power, love, authority and so much more, if you only BELIEVE.

There has already been the ultimate sacrifice and suffering. It was through Jesus Christ. We are living in a time of Grace. All who live after the time of Jesus Christ on this earth are living in GRACE.

Grace=“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” Ephesians 2:8-10

“For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ” John 1:17

God is NOT the one ALLOWING evil or suffering, nor is HE causing it, creating it or letting it happen! 

God came to bring life and life abundant. Jesus came to save us. There is an existence of an enemy, and evil exists  because of the existence of evil men, who have a free will to listen to God or listen to the devil. God has given us all a free will to love or not to love Him and man, to sin or not, to choose life or death, yet He leads us in His Word through His direction as to how to live an exceedingly abundant life in HIM. To Choose Christ is to have a greater power living in you to help you in this world. The Holy Spirit is our guide here on earth to help us choose right. Even though we may not always listen to the Holy Spirit and we still sin. Because of our life in Christ we have forgiveness and an inner conviction to try to sin no more. If we do not Have Christ IN us, we tend to listen to Satan, the world and our flesh.  The enemies voice can become very loud, and our hearts are evil without Christ.


“For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!” Romans 5:17

God is not the author of sickness, disease, or tragedies. 

Satan came to steal, kill and destroy.  What a great way to make that possible, by getting people to believe that God is the one who causes or allows all the tragedies and  junk in this world. God destroyed the works of the enemy, so don’t start giving satan power by believing his lies and deception. Really that is all the enemy has…Lies and deception.  God came to bring life, and life more abundantly. Disease is not life. 


There is so much tragedy in the world because ‘PEOPLE ALLOW’ it. NOT GOD. You give power to Satan by believing the lies, by not following Christ. God has given us a free will to do as we like. But He tells us what life here will be like when you follow after your own lusts and desires, and the lies of the enemy. He tells us also what our lives will be like when we follow and love HIM. 

HE tells us we have power and authority over sickness, disease, and we can calm the storms, heal the sick, and raise the dead. We have HIS power living inside of us as a believer, not for evil but for amazingly awesome things…. LIFE!

Life and death are the power of our tongues.  Our Words can bring life, or they can bring death. I hear people speak death over themselves and their families and friends way too often. It just grieves me. Start using Words of life. 


Begin to use your inheritance of power and of authority by commanding the mountains in your life to MOVE. Command sickness to leave, blind eyes to open. Command in Jesus Name the tragedies to NOT come near you and your household. We have this amazing Inheritance that Jesus paid for us to have and to take here and now.

STOP ‘allowing’ the evil and tragedies.  Start MOVING the MOUNTAINS  in your life through the power of the Word of God.

    Hi Connie: I wrote to you on facebook as well. I have always been confused about this, and the truth is maybe I still am. Am I to believe that because I am a follower of Jesus, I will never get sick? Or am I to believe as a follow of Jesus that if I do get sick, I shoudl just cast it off. I don’t understand this. Christians get sick, real sick sometimes. They have the church pray for them and I am sure they know to try to “cast it off”??? Another confusion I have is that as a christian and having a personal relationship with Jesus, he is in control of me now……isn’t that correct? So if bad things happen to me, whether it came from satan or my fooishness…………God did allow it? How is that explained? I have been going around this for years Connie and don’t know. I’m the one with the fear of “doctors and getting sick”…….so I am not free and still in bondage. This can’t be the abundant life Jesus promises me. I don’t know my part and God’s part. Also, what about babies who have cancer???? Why don’t christians go to St. Jude and heal all those babies. Forgive my bluntness but I must ask to know the truth. I love Andrews’ books and I read yours yet I am left with questions…..thanks again Connoe………Lillian

      Hi Lillian,
      Your questions are very typical and I will try to answer them for your. Thank you for contacting me!
      God is NOT the author and or controlling everything anymore. He sent His Son and when Jesus asended into Heaven He said He was going away, to sit at the the right hand of the Father and He left us as BELIEVERS the power and authority to heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out devils and open blind eyes!It is with HIS power living inside us as believers we have this power, we cannot do it on our own, that is why it is for Believers. God’s sovereignty has been taught to mean HE Controls and allows everything. He is not controlling all the things in your life. It does NOT mean that. He is the great I AM, The Only God and is to be honored and loved above all. But He has given us the power and authority. I am often asked why someone has died or not been healed…they had everyone praying and they believed they would be healed, or that God was ‘going’ to heal them. God Never told us to pray for the sick, but for us to HEAL THE SICK….!
      When we start taking our authority over sickness and disease and get mad at satan (the author of sickness) we can start seeing the healings, the miracles. The fact that we do see sickness in believers lets me know that things can come against us, but God’s Word also tells us to come against these things. That no weapon (sickness, disease, tragedies, tornadoes…etc.) formed against us shall prosper. We need to take His authority living in us over these things instead of entertaining them, receiving them. Thoughts such as my grandma had these things, oh well… or listening to all the commercials on TV telling us about all the things we ‘will’ get the one in four or other negative DEATH words. Turn them off and stop feeding our unbelief as I say and start feeding your believer, by studying and reading God’s Truth. 1 Peter 2:24= By His stripes WE ARE healed. God has taught me over the years that the sooner I come against a pain, sickness etc. the easier it is to see it go. When I entertain a pain and let it manifest, it takes me longer to start using the Words of power over these things. I often see Christians give up when they do not see a healing manifest right away. And then they allow it overcome them, thinking God has allowed it for some reason. WRONG. This wrong belief has been USED to explain why people have not received healing. Praying “If it is God’s will” is a wrong prayer. God tells us HIS WILL is for us to be well and to prosper….above all else.
      As far as cancer in children…. I do not have the answer for all the sickness, maybe someone in the child’s life was walking in unbelief in some way and the door was open for satan to bring sickness. And just so you know, Christians have attempted to go into many hospitals and try to pray over the sick and heal everyone. As sad as it is… NOT everyone wants healing. For many reasons which I won’t go into. One major reason I hear is that GOD HAS ALLOWED (or caused) this for some great reason…. (ARGHHH… NO NO NO)
      God also tells us there is LIFE and Death in power of our tongue and words. I hear people speaking death over themselves (not purposefully) Speak LIFE. By His stripes I AM HEALED… With Long life will HE Satify me. (satisfy is not sick) I teach people how to pray in my book. To speak directly to the sickness commanding it to go. It may seem strange at first, but God tell us to use Life words, take our authority and command sickness to leave.
      But not all leave immediately, that is God’s best, but many reasons and things can interfere. UNBELIEF, wrong teaching, lack of knowledge. God says my people perish for lack of knowledge… NOT because He is killing them with cancer, etc.
      we see even Jesus had to pray for the blind man twice because of all the unbelief in Bethsaida the town in which he lived, He had to take him out of the town, away from the unbelief and prayed twice for him and then he was healed totally. He then told him not to go back to his town,(I believe because of all the unbelief) The towns people would most likely have spoken unbelief over him and cost him his healing. Many will do that!
      Get mad at the enemy, at sickness and disease, start using the power and authority God has given you over these things. Command, in Jesus’s Power sickness, heart disease what ever is there to GO.
      I Pray you will continue to ask God to give you understanding of His truth and Word as you study and ‘Feed your believer’ starve your unbelief. I still have many friends who go to the Dr. for healing and I will continue to stand with them. God can use Drs. for healing, but HE has a better (best way). And however people get healing is good. I pray I never have to use the Drs. way and instead continue to use God’s Best.
      Blessings to you Lillian and if you still have questions please keep seeking. I am happy to help in any way I can.
      In His grace and love and mine, Connie
