Have you ever wondered, "Where is God?" during painful times of your life? Matt Brown explains how we always have a friend in God, even in the tough times.


Matt Brown is the founder of Think Eternity, an organization that reaches millions with the gospel every year. In this video, he focuses on one of the most common questions that people ask: why is there pain in this world? Where is God in the midst of this pain?

Matt says, “The presence of pain in this world doesn’t prove that God isn’t there. It just proves how much we need to invite God into our world.”

It’s common for people to blame God for the pain we face in this world when the truth is just the opposite. Pain is most often a result of an absence of God in our lives. When you think about it, pain is nearly always caused by sin. Sometimes it may be our own sin, and other times it’s the sin of other people that is affecting us.

We can’t blame God for pain when He sets an example of holiness for us, a way to live without sin so that we don’t have to suffer. We can’t live a holy life alone, which is why He sent Jesus who came down in the middle of our pain and suffering to be a light to us, to show us the hope that is in Him.

As long as there is sin in the world there will be pain in the world but in the life beyond this one, in Heaven, we find a place where there is no sin and it’s in that eternal joy that we can place our hope.
