Why did God give us problems?

In life we must often have problems, and honestly sometimes I personally often have problems from time to time. problems that could arise severe problems or minor problems. either in employment issues, business, romance, family, religion, individual problems or other problems. Once upon a time I asked myself "people say, God love me, then why is life always going from one problem to another problem"

The things that God give are all good things. You cannot be sure that God gave you problems. He may allow you problems, so that you may learn and be strengthened. God doesn't tempt anyone. If at all, it is either ourselves or the evil one who is causing the problems. We all live in a fallen world. Hope you can solve your problems. Talk to others, especially of which I am NOT one. Talk to friends too. I can be one here.

In fact usually we are given something when finally something we can live without it. This means that we have developed into a mature individual and know where to find happiness, that is on the inside.It is OK to pray in despair, but never pray with desperation.Pray with optimism and confidence.

GOD gives us problems so we can remember him. when we're on top, God will grant us the problem so that we can not forget the blessings which are given by God, well at the moment we're really fall we will continue to pray that God will soon provide good lives for our reply. and in fact God loves to hear the prayer of "servants. Therefore why God gave us problems.

The company-line is, "God doesn't make problems; Man HAS problems with the goodness God gives!" That's not entirely true (as all demons are just as much 'God' as all the angels are), but all problems are the result of the distance we put between ourselves and God.

Basically I think a problem that comes from God, there are three categories: 1. AS EXAM, meaning the test here is intended to test his servant who always obey Him worship, here God's test was aimed Could servant of a servant passing the exam is given, whether it is increasing or diminishing his faith. 2. AS A warning, in this warning is addressed to those who violate God's command so that the person is capable of correcting the mistakes he did. 3. AS punishment, namely: the punishment that is given directly to His servant who disbelieve, well, the punishment here is the final act when the creature does not heed the warning given earlier so that there is punishment.

maybe you should be grateful .. because you're still given a trial .. because only a man who loved God who is still given a trial ... only people who have no life that is free of problems ... I also may never think like you .. but rest assured God has always had beautiful plans behind all of that ...

As human beings we learn through out trials and tribulations and as a Zen practitioner who meditates every day, I can see what value I have had in my life due to the problems that I have overcome. They are character building and if there were no problems at all, life would be pretty meaningless - and that would be another problem Seriousy though, we can't understand the true meaning of life with our little earth brains but one day, it is open to us all to get a deeper understanding of life's mysteries. _Derek

Problems come to us for various reasons. It could be a result of our own mistakes, wrong decision, wrong association and many others. Problems do come also as a result of other people's misdoings. There are several reasons why problems happen and sometimes you don't even know how it comes to you. So we are tempted to question, why does God allows these problems. Well dear, God allows problems for various reasons, some are: 1. to teach us good lessons so the at we can learn from our mistakes and come up a better person. 2. to punish us so that we will not commit the same mistakes 3. for us to learn how to pray and depend on God instead of depending on our own selves so that we will realize that we need God in our life.

Greetings! For me the reason why God gives us problems its because God wants us to be strong. God wants us to learn so that in every situation, we know what action to do. Another reason is life is just balanced. We cannot feel joy if we didn't experienced pain. Like in eating, we cannot feel like to eat if we're not hungry. We don't want to drink if we're thirsty. Just like problems, we can't feel that joy if we didn't experienced problems. It feels good solving problems because we become better persons. :)

Certainly, everything has its reasons for existence. And for every problem, definitely there is a solution. We should also realized that not all problems were created by God. Some, if not all, are actually man-made problems. God was just above watching over our actions, and when things do happen, it's not mainly because God wanted it to happen. And don't worry, Our God is a BIG God. Just tell your problem," Hey problem, I have a BIG God!" Surely, God will be in your midst....

There are several reasons why God give us with a problem: 1. Measuring the level of our faith as servants, the more we patient, that's mean more higher the belief that we have. 2. Removal of our sins. God will wipe away our sins if we are able to receive and solve the problems we are facing. 3. Reminder. God gave the problem to be solved so that we always remember Him. 4. Substitute another pleasure. Sometimes in this life there are some blessings from God that might not again be enjoyed. Therefore God give pleasure others in form a problem to us

God did not give us problems. In fact, God has always been the solution. We are just born here in this world, and this world is occupied by sin and problems. Supposed to be, in the Garden of Eden, there was no problem, until man created the problem themselves. Here, like the global warming. It is man who has brought this upon themselves. We create the problems. At any rate, we are just here temporarily. We are here to learn to know and love God. Then, after a while, we shall be gone from here and be with Him. Therefore, God never gave us problems in the very first place. In fact, when we have so many problems, and while we focus our attention and blaming on the problems, it is then that while we are suffering, God is actually lifting us and helping us.

God allows us to have problems that we can solve or carry. we only have to call on Him for help. Those problems are allowed in order to test your faith in HIM. As a passage says, He is strongest, when you are at your weakest.

I think if we were not given problems to solve, we would gradually lose importance of everything that is good for us, lose faith and worse, lose the insight of our existence itself. Problems are just a way of keeping us on our toes and to appreciate the many big and small things that are given to us!

Not all problems are God given. Most of the time people think it that way but most of the time as well we are the one to blame with the problems that we have. God has given us the free will to choose from right or wrong. God may sometimes forbid problems to pass on us because He wanted us to learn something or in order for us to be strengthened. As He has said that he will never give us something far from our capabilities but other than that it is self inflicted.

God never gives us a problem that we can not handle. Our faith and belief is tested through the trials and challenges that we face each day. It makes our faith stronger as we overcome each obstacle of life.

Thank you for sharing, very useful for me ... Giving God the core issue for our test for the blessings God has given us, whether we are patient and sincere After God gave His favors his then taken it to test what we are a people-his people are patient, sincere and gratitude, if we include into the class of people who are good and patient and sincere gratitude for his exam will be in his favor plus we ... May we include the Group of his people are patient, thanks.

As some one else has said that God never give us more than we can handle. But usually when things are going well with us we tend to forget about God. He will allow troubles or problems to come into our live to remind us to turn to him.
