Sometimes God, in His sovereignty, allows things to happen to us that are hurtful and difficult to understand. Our fervent prayers go unanswered, our finances continue to dwindle to the point of ruin, our closest family relationships remain estranged and broken, and our sick loved ones grow weaker and die.
And when this all happens we often point the finger at God and accuse Him of being unloving. “God, I would never allow my son to go through what You’ve made me go through. Why? I feel like I’m more loving to my children than You are to me.”
But in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. Case in point: When Jesus waited for two day before coming to the aid of Lazarus (John 11:6).
To find out more about why sometimes God seems unloving, keep listening.
