If you do not know about life ask nature
Job 12:7-10 - But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.
People think things in this world just happen and many of those who believe in God think Him to be a spectator to this world.
Nothing in the world just happens. If that was so, that we should not believe in God, nor the Bible.
Everything that is living or not living has been made by God, and all living things live because of God. Even Satan lives because of God.
Living beings like man and Angels posses a soul / heart, over which God has given them control over. They can make decisions and direct their lives towards good or bad. Which means to accept God's plan in their lives or go by their own plan rejecting / going against God's plan. This decision will decide their destination.
In the start Satan who was a great Heavenly being went against God's plan and became the father of evil. He then convinced others and led others against God's plan. When he came to know that God made man to destroy him, he put his nature into man but tempting man to sin for he wanted man too to be destroyed with him.
God has allowed sin into man like a doctor allows mild doses of virus (vaccination) into a child to help it build immunity against it. Sin angers God and attracts His wrath and on the other hand our fighting sin pleases God and attracts His blessings.
Around this fight of man against sin and his sinful nature the whole stage (this world) is set. Whatever happens in this world is with God knowledge for nothing can happen without Him. Problems comes both to test us and build us, or because our failure in fighting sin. Thus if problems exist and it is not building us we need to wake up and think where we are going wrong.

Father God, open our eyes and let us see that You are God and all things are for You and by You. You are Holy, Righteous, Merciful and your Wisdom is beyond compare. Father help us by your Spirit to fight this nature of Adam and live the nature of Jesus Christ which we received by believing in Him. Holy Spirit, strengthen us and build us to bring us to peace with the Father and with ourselves. This we ask in Jesus' Name, Amen
