Have You Ever Said These Words, “But Why God?”

But why God? NeedEncouragement.comPlease contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.

At some point, each of us has said to ourselves or out loud to someone else, “But why God…” It’s a natural response when we find ourselves facing difficulties or challenges that seem overwhelming. We question why certain things happen in our lives, whether it’s the result of our own mistakes or circumstances beyond our control. But amidst all these uncertainties, we must remember one fundamental truth – God is in control. He allows both good and not-so-good things to happen according to His divine will. Sometimes, the consequences we face are a direct result of our ignorance, disobedience or sin. Other times, they occur purely by accident or due to someone else’s actions.

In moments like these when doubt creeps in and we wonder about life’s injustices and hardships, we often hear people ask: “Why do bad things happen to good people?” However, let us also remember another profound statement: “We are all sinners.” None of us can claim absolute righteousness because from the beginning of time itself, humanity has been marked by original sin inherited from Adam and Eve. Therefore, this notion of so-called “good people” doesn’t truly exist. It is important though for us not to shy away from asking God that very question – “But why God?” It is part of our human nature to seek understanding and clarity during difficult times. Yet even as we pose this question with sincerity and vulnerability before Him, let us also keep in mind that ultimately God is God and we are not.  ~ Bill Greguska


Psalm 42:5  Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet, praise him, my Savior, and my God.


Learn Why Bad Things Happen To “Good People?”

Here Is A Powerful Prayer That Will Offer You Some Peace Of Mind.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen.

Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)




But Why God?Why does God allow certain things to happen against our plans? NeedEncouragement.com

People have heard people say, “If the Lord is so good, why doesn’t he stop murder, rape, disease, hunger, poverty, and other bad things?”  You will find out the answers to this question in the video below. I have asked the Lord this question and other issues like it in my personal life before. I realize that the Lord is in control, even though it may not look like it the way our society is.

The main reason for this problem is that the Lord has given us free will because He wants us to love Him instead of like robots. So when God created us, He had to provide us with free will. Ultimately, we choose what we do but can not determine the consequences or benefits. ~ Bill Greguska
