First Verse by Believin Stephen

Where was God on nine eleven?

The same place He was on nine ten!

Sovereignly rulin the sky and heaven (Psalm 115:3; Psalm 135:6)

On His throne, is where you’ll find Him! (Psalm 47:8; Revelation 20:11)

Why do “bad things” happen to good people?

But…there’s no good people, we’re all evil (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:10-11; Romans 3:23)

God created the sea, flip to Genesis (Genesis 1:10)

It was great as could be, but sins the nemesis

In the garden, Adam was naked wit Eve (Genesis 2:25)

God gave dominion, made em both free (Genesis 2:19-20)

But Satan deceived; they ate from the tree (Genesis 3:1-6)

Disobeyed wit this greed, in guilt takin some leaves (Genesis 3:7)

Shameful indeed, now we’re depraved in our deeds (Genesis 3:8-19; Romans 5:12)

God cursed the ground now pain is conceived (Genesis 3:17-19)

We’re fallen…feeble all are evil (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:10-11; Romans 3:23)

Satan bruised His heel but God is diesel!! (Genesis 3:15)

We know death is the wages of sin (Romans 6:23)

God arranges the win, it’s displayed in the end (1 Corinthians 15:54-55; Rev. 20:7-15; Rev. 21:1-7)

Due to the fall we favor iniquity (Jeremiah 17:9)

This explains all of our pain and our misery (Genesis 3:17-19)

We’d never suffer if it weren’t for the fall

We’re all to blame..every person’s involved! (Romans 3:23)

But God made a plan, He’s sure to resolve (The Gospel)

Reversin the curse for those purchased and called! (Ephesians 1:9-11)

We all suffer, no one’s exempt (Romans 8:22-23)

Every single day we get closer to death (Romans 6:23)

But if you’re not you Christian suffer in vain! (1 Peter 4:15)

Cuz your sin which is disgustin remains!

But if you’re saved you certainly should

Know that all things work for your good! (Genesis 50:20, Romans 8:28)

From the mouth of God, good and bad come (Lam 3:37-38; Amos 3:6)

No one can question, what He has done (Dan. 4:35)

If you’re not saved, you got to be nervous

His plans stand, He’ll accomplish His purpose (Isaiah 46:10)

He rules and reigns, I’m droppin these verses (Daniel 4:35)

Controls all thangs , come to God with our worship (Acts 17:26)

God ordains, He’s not limited my friends

Sovereignly declares the beginning and the end (Isaiah 46:10; Acts 17:26)

Only incidents, no accidents, just imagine it (Isaiah 45:6-7)

No coincidence, He’s intimate, yet immaculate (Jeremiah 24:7)

He writes history, He is not bluffin (Acts 17:26)

My God is sovereign over suffering (Lamentations 3:37-38; Isaiah 45:7; Amos 3:6)

Plus sovereign over Satan, this is demonstratin (Job 1; Revelation 20:7-10)

His omnipotence, my God is amazing (Psalm 139:7-10)

God’s sovereign, His plan’s phenomenal (Acts 2:23)

He’s not the author of evil, man’s responsible (James 1:13-15)

Sometimes God brings suffering as punishment

Like David’s woes for breakin the covenant (2 Samuel 12:10-14)

But we don’t always suffer in direct proportion (Job; John 9; Luke 13:1-5)

To how much we sin, but it is according

To God’s wisdom, His greatness shown

He uses our pain as His megaphone (2 Corinthians 4:7-12)

As a wake-up call, so we’ll cry for help

And get our faith up yall, not rely on self! (2 Corinthians 12:7-10)

And seek His face, cause we need His grace (Hebrews 4:16)

Third Verse by Believin Stephen

God does whatever He pleases (Psalm 135:6)

Like save some to be forever with Jesus (Romans 8:29-32; Romans 9:24-26)

All the pain that we presently feel

Can’t compare to the glory in heaven revealed (Romans 8:18)

We have this treasure in jars of clay (2 Corinthians 4:7)

Struck down, not destroyed by scars and pain (2 Corinthians 4:8-10)

We share in the pain and afflictions of Christ (2 Corinthians 1:5; 2 Timothy 1:8)

He’s aware of the strain; in our pits He will fight (Psalm 88; Isaiah 43:2; 2 Corinthians 1:3)

He is with us despite, our addictions and plights (2 Corinthians 12:9)

In our dark tunnels, He’s the flickerin light (John 1:5; John 12:35-36)

And with infinite might, our pain He’s allevin it (2 Corinthians 1: 3-7)

Relieving it, but it might not be immediate (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

The whole universe exists to display

The greatness of the glory of God in full array

The glory of God shines fully (or surely) in our face

The most in the presence of the glory of His grace (Romans 5:2)

 This glory of grace is seen the best

Displayed at the cross, at Jesus’ death

The only Good one, sinless and perfect (1 Peter 2:22)

He died for millions (of sinners) who didn’t deserve it (Romans 5:6-11)

(so) Suffrin exists to display God’s grace

At the cross of Christ, where we’re saved through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5)

God ordained Christ’s death in His perfect plan (Acts 2:23)

He’s called the slain Lamb before the earth began!! (Isaiah 53:7; Revelation 5:12)


He’s Sovereign…..over suffering

He’s Sovereign over suffering (Repeated 2x)


BRIDGE (Repeated 2x) by Believin Stephen

God allows evil call it mystery

Christ on the cross, balled in misery (Matthew 27:46; Hebrews 5:7)

No greater pain in all of history (2 Corinthians 5:21)

He died for sins, our falls, iniquities (Romans 8:2-3; 1 Corinthians 15:3)
