Why God “Allows” N’s To Wreak Havoc? – Foundations – God’s Plan For A Purpose of Love


Click here for the road map on this discussion about Why God Allows Narcissists* To Wreak Havoc


Ephesians 1:8-12

….. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He (God) purposed in Him (Jesus) ……..11 …… who (God) works all things after the counsel of His will, 12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory.


God’s will is based on a loving purpose (“kind intention”).  That loving purpose is based on His inherent nature (“God is love” – 1 John 4:8).  And He executes everything, down to the tiniest detail, according to the plan which he has created (“works all things after the counsel of His will”).

The end of all of it is that we will praise Him for his manifold excellence (“praise of His glory”) which He has shown in every possible way – and of which we have been made a prime beneficiary.

When we ask Why He is allowing a Narcissist to wreak havoc in our lives, we can be sure that it is not just some random thing going on – there is a much bigger plan in play, and the essence of that plan is love.

Narcissism and the Sovereignty of God – Intro

Psalm 103:19

The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, And His sovereignty rules over all.
Narcissists can be very, very harmful to others.  They can be harmful to “the work”, whatever work that may be – whether in an office, ministry, mission field, etc.  This harm results from their putting their needs above the needs of others.
There are ways to deal with narcissists to try to mitigate or reduce the damage.  But there are times – in the case of Haman in the book of Esther, for example – where the narcissist is in such a position of power over you that you have no choice but to trust God’s loving sovereignty in the situation.
This is a big subject.   And it has to do with the difficult question of why God allows,evil in the world.  And how He uses it for our good.
But, its something that has to be discussed in a biblical review of narcissism.  And that’s the subject of this section.
