Hope in Crisis: Where is God When Tragedy Hits?

Ad Feedback

The book of Psalms tell us that the "ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, and the stormy winds do God's bidding."

God is sovereign. He's in control of all that He's created...even in disaster.

But the Bible also tell us that God is there to provide comfort when tragedy strikes.
