If you disobbey God then u are obbeying or allowing someone to control you. God can allow the devil to tempt you like the story of Job.the evil spirit is not of God but of devil . in John 7 God says He has plans for us plans to prosper us not to hurm us

1 Samuel 16:14 Talks about an evil spirit coming upon Saul. This "evil spirit" that is being spoken of is not of God. Notice that the word "spirit" is NOT capitalized. That is significant because all words that refer to God or His son or the Holy Spirit are capitalized. So therefore the evil spirit was not really from God, but from Saul choosing not to do what he wanted and not what God wanted. So basically God stepped back like Saul wanted Him to do and God let him go his own way which led to an evil spirit harassing him. It is easy to slip in our Christian walk with God and just get off track, but God will always be right there to pick you up when you ask Him to. He is always waiting for you to run into His arms, but until then He will faithfully love you and wait until you realize that you need Him again. God wants to be our strength. We just have to allow Him to be that strength.

"an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him"...this sentence makes me confuse....would the evil spirit come from God? Thanks Jesus bless
