You alone know the answer to that
Continue to meet with my friend every three months on the question of evil. It was a pretty bad day for my presentation, in fact, my friend mentioned that he was even more convinced than ever that Satan was the real ruler of the universe.
So you can imagine my disappointment.
Then the Lord gave me a word — one-dimensional.
I had him listening.
Then I said, I do not know the answer to that – I know I will have the opportunity of asking God when I meet Him – however, this is what I know. When evil falls upon the good and the bad alike, like it does and so it should, the bad walk through it alone – the good (followers of Christ) walk through it holding the hand of God and He walks with them through the evil. Whether He calls them home, or He spares them, or He sustains them through it – its His call and has nothing to do with how good I am.
I think I saw a tear.
He knew he could not respond to that – he said that I saved the best for last and gave him lots to think about until we meet again.
I breathed a thank you Lord.
