God could compensate for people’s evil actions through supernatural intervention 100 percent of the time. God would stop a drunk driver, stop a father who has addictions from abusing his family, stop robberies, or stop terrorist attacks. While this solution sounds great, it would lose its appeal as soon as God’s intervention infringed on something we wanted to do. We want God to prevent horribly evil actions, but we are willing to let “lesser-evil” actions slide – not realizing that those “lesser-evil” actions are what usually lead to the “greater-evil” actions. For example: there is pornography that leads to affairs and cheating on taxes that leads to theft. Ultimately, all evil causes harm to others. We live in a real world where our good and evil actions have direct and indirect consequences upon us and those around us. God’s desire is that we would obey Him. Jesus came to change men’s hearts through the power of the Holy Spirit, and He does this for those who will call on Him to save them from their sin and its consequences.

We can trust in God, even when life hurts, and when we don’t understand why bad things are happening to us. Discovery Series outlines 10 Reasons to Believe in a God Who Allows Suffering.

Look at some of these reasons as ways to deepen your faith and trust in God, even when there is pain and suffering in your life, and in the world around you.
