Evil exists. Our world wants to deny it exists. You as a child of God cannot be naïve about that. If we want to overcome evil in our lives, we need to set our mind on victory! Be alert, be humble and be confident. Know your enemy and have strategies against those things set against you, the world, the flesh, and the devil. We overcome evil in our lives by repenting of sin, rejoicing in trials, and rejecting and reacting to temptation.
The world is evil not because of God’s creation but because of mankind’s choice. God cares about those who suffer, and it is God’s proclaimed purpose to one day do away with evil. He waits so more might come to Him for salvation. In the end the only solution to the problem of evil is trust. When you trust God you can ask Him hard questions. When you trust Him, you begin to see things in the light of eternity.
