There is often an answer to the “why” of Divine will in any given circumstance but you have to be willing to seek it. Some things we just can’t understand, not this side of heaven anyway, and some things are just too painful for us to understand, but for the most part, there really is a rhyme, a reason, a wise purpose behind God’s will. The reason why we seek it out and seek Him out is to better get to know Him, to know His nature and His voice, and in the process to also better know ourselves.

1 Kings 19:11-13 

And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
