This is a good question to ask whenever some kind of trouble enters your life.

In fact, it is the best way to find the answer to your problems. Of course you could adopt the attitude of bold defiance, and grimly determine to fight against your trials. Or you could just give up with the fatalistic attitude that your troubles are unavoidable anyway. But the best policy is to ask yourself quietly and calmly, “Why did God allow this to come into my life?”

Your first temptation might be to reason that God is punishing you for some sin that you have committed. While this could very possibly be true, it is obviously not the main reason for your distress. If God’s main purpose were punishment, He could have taken your life away altogether. Instead of that, He has purposely extended your life so that your question might be answered.

You ask, “Why did this happen to me?”

The answer is that God wants to speak to you. Maybe He has tried to speak to you before, but as long as things were going well with you, you weren’t interested in listening. Possibly the only way to get your attention was to allow hard times to come into your life. The truth is, God is so interested in your eternal happiness that He is even willing to permit you to suffer for a short time to get you to listen to what He has to say.

God wants four things for you in these trials.

First of all, He wants you to feel your need for help. Second, He wants you to realize your inability to help yourself. Third, He wants you to abandon all hope of obtaining relief from other people. Finally, He wants you to cast yourself on Him and ask Him to save you.

You see, if you had died before now without having Jesus as your Savior, you would have been lost throughout all eternity. Your sins would have never been forgiven, and because of this, you would have been barred from Heaven forever.

But God does not want you to perish. In order that He might have a just and righteous way of forgiving your sins, He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die on the Cross of Calvary. Christ died for ungodly sinners like you and me so that we might be forgiven. Three days after His burial, the Savior rose again. Then forty days later, He went back to heaven where, at this very moment, He is waiting to save you.

Now here is the message which God is trying to make you understand: “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). If you will acknowledge your sins and accept the Son of God as your Lord and Savior, you will receive forgiveness of your sins, eternal life, and an inheritance in Heaven. He has definitely promised this in His Word, the Holy Bible, and He will not and cannot go back on His promise.

God has done His part. Your part is to take God at His word—to acknowledge and admit your sin and guilt to God—and then to receive Jesus Christ as your own personal Savior. Here is what the Word of God states: “But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name” (John 1:12). Why not take the Lord Jesus Christ as your own Savior now, for remember—

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:36).

Life is short, Death is sure;
Sin the cause, Christ the cure.
