God has been misrepresented as causing the tragedy in our world, and I believe that is the number one reason people are not seeking relationship with Him.  If you think God is causing the problems in your life, then you’ll want to keep Him at arm’s length–even if you are a Christian.  It’s a natural response to try to avoid people and situations that might hurt you.  But God isn’t causing the suffering in our world.  In fact, God has nothing to do with it.

    God loves you, and He desires good things for you, but experiencing the love of God passes mere knowledge about His love (Ephesians 3:19). Once you understand how good God is and begin having a real relationship with Him, you open yourself to receiving His love and being filled with all the fullness of God.  The blessings of God will come upon you and overtake you, and it will cause everything to work out for good in your life.

John 10:10  “The thief cometh not but for to steal, kill, and destroy.  But I am come, that ye might have life and have it more abundantly.”

Eph. 3:19-20 “…to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”
