Have you ever gotten mad at God because events were going poorly in your life? Perhaps you’re struggling with disease, or facing dire lack, and wondering, “Where is God in all this?” And then find yourself getting mad at God because you’re not finding your way out of the suffering.
When people tell me that they are mad at God, I explain that the evil they are experiencing has nothing to do with God. God is not in evil, and evil has nothing in common with God. The way out of suffering is to move thought from believing one is subject to evil into understanding that God is all-powerful good.
Suffering is a darkened state of mortal mind. The one to blame for suffering is never divine Mind, but mortal mind.
Mortal mind is the belief that life is in matter and subject to woe. It’s a dream state that has no reality in God, yet does seem real to the mortal believing it.
God sent Christ to wake humanity from this dream state and enable people to realize their health and abundance in God.
The cure for suffering is to turn away from mortal mind to Christ and find the Mind of God filled with healing messages of truth and love. As we welcome these heavenly messages into consciousness, the sense of evil dissipates, suffering abates, and healing occurs.
Suffering is never God’s fault. It’s mortal mind error. We can mentally walk out of suffering by siding with Truth and claiming what is rightfully ours from the beginning—God-given strength, health and life without limit.
“It’s urgent that you listen carefully to this: Anyone here who believes what I am saying right now and aligns himself with the Father, who has in fact put me in charge, has at this very moment the real, lasting life and is no longer condemned to be an outsider. This person has taken a giant step from the world of the dead to the world of the living” Jesus Christ, John 5:24, The Message.
