God is always good. God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. So why do people ask the question, "If God is so good, why does he allow evil to happen to people?" Of course, most people ask this question rhetorically. The answer is quite simple. We are free We have the freedom to do anything we want, even if and when consequences follow. So if we steal and we are caught, we reap the consequences of that action. Likewise, if we study God's rulebook and apply the principles and promises therein, we will reap the positive results of our freedom of choice. We are the most blessed people on Earth if we choose to be. God's forgiveness, health, and prosperity become ours when we believe God's Word.
