Krishna and pure devotees see through the substance, not the maya the world sees through.
God controls the material as well as the spiritual, which means that everything directly or indirectly happens through the sanction of the Lord. If we can just accept that our circumstances are meant to benefit us, we will be able to connect with the loving aspect of the Lord and learn to grow from a seemingly negative situation.
You have to be a complete fool to not accept the existence of God.
