Does tragegy bring us closer to God
September 25, 2017 3:55am CST
Good morning. I hope you had a beautiful Sunday and even as the weeks goes by hoping to have greater achievements. I have heard and experienced people say that hardships draw us closer to God. From your experience and all the hard times you have had in life, did you get closer to God? Just imagine wouldn't it be cruel for God to use something terrible to make us love him? I sincerely hope not. With earthquakes, Hurricanes, Floods and droughts. Do these draw us close to him.

I do not know why those bad things happen. I think a part of it is that we are given the gift of free will. We do not have to be close to God, it is a choice. I have heard both ways, sad things bring people close or drive people away. I hope everyone has a close relationship with God
God allows tragedies to happen to our lives to teach us lessons in life and most of all, for us to see that we need God more than anyone in circumstances beyond our control and so we need to believe and trust Him and have to depend and be close to Him for He is only our safe refuge and strength.
The problems we experience are not caused by God. He will allow them still for a short time, and it is all explained in the Bible. "We know that we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." God's Kingdom will soon end all the problems and bring a new world government - see Daniel 2:44. Isaiah 11, Psalm 37 Before it happens, we need to keep close to God and ask him for strength and wisdom, so that we can cope with this time of the end of this old world.
Yes tragedies bring us closer to God .We remember him mostly when we have problems in our life. Yes earthquakes,hurricanes,floods and droughts draw us close to him. Its human nature to call on God more when they face problems in life...
