Q&R: 2 Chronicles 7 – When is God the Cause?

Question: It's that time again when everyone brandishes 2 Chronicles 7:12-14! In Bible Study, a questioner honestly admitted NOT quite seeing how God would prevent rain, command locusts to devour the land or send pestilence among the people: "Why is God so mean and controlling, etc?"
