In light of recent events such as hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, famines and terror attacks, this is a question that is frequently asked. On one level, it is easy to answer. Sin entered the world when Adam and Eve disobeyed God, and since then his perfect creation has been corrupted and is in a state of decay.
On another level, the question asks why doesn't God intervene and save us from this trouble? Romans 11:34 says, For who can know the Lord's thoughts? Who knows enough to give him advice? The answer is no one. God sees everything from before creation to infinity. He created the heavens and the earth and everything in it, including us. Sometimes we can't understand, we just have to trust that God is in control and knows what he is doing. What we do know is, what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later Romans 8:18.
