Everyone wonders why God allows evil to exist. The truth is that God does permit trials and tribulations. The ultimate gift of freedom from God provides us with the opportunity to lean in on Jesus.
What is most divine-like about the human experience is our ability to choose. God respects this gift so much, He even allows for evil to exist.
Dear God, protect me from evil. I accept my tribulations and difficulties as chance to rely on the power of Jesus.
