Why God Allows Hardships to Come to Humans

     In life, one will go through many difficult times and situations. Sometimes, the situation is so bad they will ask themselves, "Why do I have to go through this? What did I do that deserved this?" And some Christians will ask, "God. If you're real, why did you let your faithful believer go through this?"  Anyway, the reason people usually question God is because Satan is quietly blaming everything on God in their ear, causing them to think that God was the reason to this terrible time. Here's the answer: we are living in a chaotic world but God's love for us never changes. As mentioned many times in the Bible, we are constantly in a spiritual warfare (just like Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden) and Satan is doing everything he can to damage us, and to cause us to question God. Also, in the Bible, the consummation of the world (and the 'end time') has already been clearly foretold. It is very challenging, yet absolutely worthwhile, to discern what comes from God and what comes from the enemy. May we keep beholding Jesus, our wonderful Savior and Friend, as we pass through this amazing journey together.  "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
