Proverbs 15:29 (ESV)
29 The Lord is far from the wicked,
but he hears the prayer of the righteous.
*God is never a part of something that is bad. Therefore, when something bad happens and people claim it as the Father's will, that is not the case. There are consequences of sin, and sometimes it effects the lives of the innocent, but God is not near or orchestrating bad things...That is of the enemy, and due to the sinful nature of this world. This is why we have to consistently pray over ourselves, our families, and invite God into our lives for His will to be done. We also must develop and build upon our relationship with Him, and not abuse grace in order to understand who He is and how He operates in our lives. If we draw closer to Him through prayer and our actions, He automatically comes closer to us...This decision to be close to Him in doing the right thing effects what positive or negative elements effect our lives.
