Have you ever wondered why God lets bad things happen?
The world is full of tragedy. A child develops cancer. A storm destroys the homes of thousands. Hard-working people become victims of corporate cutbacks. A good plan falls apart.
Things like this can cause us to question the goodness of God. And when they do happen, it provides Satan with a perfect opportunity to keep us wondering:
God, why are you doing this to me?
Do you struggle with confidence? Perhaps you have endured one failure after another. Maybe you have developed an insecurity that hinders relationships with others and even keeps you from having peace.
Millions of people battle depression behind closed doors and are on the brink of ending their lives. However, this goes unnoticed by those around them.
Marriages and homes are collapsing because couples can’t commit to one another. Anger and hate run rampant. It seems human beings have no concern for one another.
These are the battles of life. Inevitably, we all have at least one to fight that is much bigger and more powerful than we are. It seems no matter what we do, we can’t overcome the problem. Even when we ask God to help us, we don’t get the response from Him we want. As we struggle to survive, we can become cynical, cold-hearted, and hopeless.
We may even turn against God.
