Why does God allow so much suffering if He’s so good? Why do good people sometimes have to endure so much pain and heartache if God supposedly loves them so much? These are the oldest questions in the book. Some folks have endured so much pain and have lived through so many problems in their life, that the idea of a loving God who watches over every moment like a tender Father is just a hard concept to get their heads around. Now, the only thing that’s worse than those unbelievably perplexing questions is a person who thinks they have the answers to those questions. You’ve met these folks, right? The situation goes like this: A person you know and love experiences some incredibly difficult tragedy or loss and then some other dude will come alongside them and tell them that “the reason this happened was so that God could use this situation to glorify Himself or bring people to the church.” Not cool. The truth is, no one has idea why God works the way He does. We don’t know what He’s up to, and that’s part of our faith. The only thing we know is that one day, when we’re in heaven, every single one of us will look at our lives and tell the Lord that everything He ordered or allowed was good and right and exactly what we needed. Once, Jesus said, “Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?” We don’t know why He’s doing what He does, but we know He’s good. The heart of faith says, “Lord Jesus, you’re good. Somehow, this is the best thing for me. I don’t know why it’s happening, but I know You and that’s enough.
