What you're describing isn't a paradox, but you're right that there's no guarantee. However:
JGL had listened to the mum saying she hoped he could control it and do good with it. And he saw that at the end, she was able to talk him down. And he also realised (as I'd predicted quite early in the film) that it was actually he who created the Rainmaker in the first place, by shooting Sarah in front of the boy.
