Natural Disasters – Is God Mad at us?

Natural disasters

Why have there been so many horrific natural disasters? It seems so inconceivable that these events have taken place and have uprooted and changed so many lives.  These events are heartbreaking and yet it continues.  Why is this happening?  Is God mad at us?  Looking at all these disasters, there has to be a reason for so much devastation!

When God created the world, He wanted it to be perfect and for the people to follow His will.  But when there was rebellion against Him, God had to step aside.  He never wanted this to happen, He loves us and wants the best for all of us. One example was the flooding of the earth.  Noah and his family alone were found to live righteously.

The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.  So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
Genesis 6:5-8

In present time today, these disasters are still occurring. God gave us free will but God’s will involves having the Holy Spirit guide us to do God’s will. A lot of people live their lives the way they want without Him and leave God out. But in the last days the Bible predicted these events occurring:

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 2 Timothy 3:1-4

These natural disasters will happen until our Savior, Jesus Christ comes back.  Because of His death and resurrection, we have hope.  When we accept that he died for our sins and accept Him into our heart, then we have a great destination where there will be no more natural disasters, death, hate or sorrow.

While we are here, we can spread this good word.  We can pray and help others who have been stricken with these natural disasters. Trust God and expect blessings even through these present storms of life.
