What is the difference? Well, it depends on which view we take. The world's view or God's view. The world's view says anything that hurts us or makes us feel bad or even hurts others is evil. The world's view also says good is whatever makes us feel good or happy or lets us get our way, and so on.
Let's look at what God calls good and evil. We must start at the beginning when man was created. God created male and female and called them Adam. They were one! And then he pulled woman out of man by taking a rib and creating woman. That is when He separated them. We all remember the fall -- when they eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. They did not know the difference but once their eyes were opened they saw everything differently and they started feeling things they never felt before -- like fear and shame. If you remember, Adam heard God coming and hid himself because he was naked. The Lord asked where he was and why he was hiding. Adam said he was afraid because he was naked. Before this, they did not know they were naked and there was no problem.
After knowing this, when we look at life we should look at it through the eyes of the Spirit and not of the world. Let's look at what the Lord said to Moses when He sent him to set His people free. He said Pharaoh was created to show the Glory “Hand” of God. God allows everything to take place for His glory to be seen on earth; to bring all men/women to Himself, to the knowledge of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
So if a child dies in any form -- I mean any, too -- that child is with the Father in heaven with no care in the world. That child will never hunger or thirst again; never be in want. If He allows things to happen to draw all men unto Him, how can that be bad? Everything is created for a reason and purpose. We cannot see the whole picture and game plan the Father has.
Just imagine everything going on around you is the Lord trying to get your attention. He is trying to speak to you through what is going on in and around you right at this moment. Sit back and ask the Lord to speak to you and reveal Himself to you. Ask the Lord to open your eyes to see and to open your ears to hear what the Spirit is saying and doing. Can you imagine that the Lord cares that much for you?
He gave up his Godly throne and came to earth in human form just for you. He walked on earth as a human being for 33 years and was tempted just like us, but sinned not. He was perfect and then, to top it all off, He went to the Cross -- was tortured and beaten and then was crucified for your sins. He paid the price for the sins of the world.
Look at what the Lord suffered for our sins. Do you think it was good or evil? It is good the Lord loves you and me so much that He would die for us and bring us back into the relationship He created us for in the beginning. Let’s change our mindset and start looking at every situation as a God-ordained opportunity to bring us into a closer relationship with Him. Let’s let God be God and allow him to do whatever he wants in us, to us and through us. God says; “I AM THE GREAT I AM. I WILL HAVE MERCY ON WHO I HAVE MERCY.”
