Why Did God Let Me Be Sexually Assaulted?: What Did I Do to Deserve It?

God does not desire for you to suffer from being sexually assaulted, but He has allowed it. He does not intervene in most cases when the innocent suffer, nor did He stop the one who violated you. So why didn’t He? Why doesn’t He just intercede and stop the perpetrators of violence?

The answer begins with the understanding that the suffering in this world is the result of sin. Much of that suffering is inflicted on others by humans who are violating God’s laws. For a while, God must allow this to continue so that all people will see just how dreadful sin really is.

God has a plan to finally get rid of sin for all eternity. That will take a change in the heart of all people. This is where the evil that happened to you came from. For Jesus said, “From within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder” (Mark 7:21 Mark 7:21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

).

God’s plan is to fix the heart of mankind. After Jesus Christ returns to Earth, that process will be complete when all who are willing accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. When all people finally stop sinning, there will be no more pain and suffering. This is the kind of world that is coming.

Until then, even while you suffer from the pain of being violated, Christ offers you comfort. He said that His Father “sent Me to heal the brokenhearted” (Luke 4:18 Luke 4:18The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

). He says, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28 Matthew 11:28Come to me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

). You can cast “all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7 1 Peter 5:7Casting all your care on him; for he cares for you.

).

God knows what happened to you. He offers you comfort now to be healed from your pain. And He has a plan to never let sexual assault happen again.
