Evil has no existence of its own - it is really a lack in a good thing. For example, holes are real but they only exist in something else. We call the absence of dirt a hole - but it cannot be separated from the dirt. So when God created, it is true that all that existed was good. One of the good things that God made was creatures who had the freedom to choose good. In order to have a real choice, God had to allow there to be something besides good to choose. So God allowed these free angels and humans to choose good or non-good (evil). When a bad relationship exists between two good things we call that evil, but it does not become a "thing" that required God to create it.

Romans 1:28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;Here Romans says that God will give you over to a debased mind if you reject Him. Now does that mean that God is at fault for your debased mind? NO. He has sovergnly decreed your rebellion.
A good question would be why did God LET Adam bite the fruit? My simple response is FOR HIS GLORY.
God left the possiblity for sin to come forth and be originated by man. God did not make anybody sin against thier will. He only allowed them to do it while they chose to.
It would be correct to say that God uses all circumstances for His good, but God does not originate all circumstances to begin with, but man originates sin.
We can say that He desires first to be glorified, but the revelation points to His desire for man to love Him.
Reguardless if God "needs" it or not, He wants it.Jhn 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
