Not the least of which is the value of free will and the propensity for folks to request interventions that have unforeseen consequences. He does intervene when it is in His best interest to do so, but then, He has every right to, after all, it is His creation. He has also made promises to those who love Him that He will work things out for their good. Just as the Israelites helped out their servants, the Gibeonites, He does come to our aid miraculously at times. However, he weighs what is best for everyone involved in His decision. (In Contrast, every nation looks out for its own interests, often to the exclusion of not only the interests of other nations, but to the detriment of the citizen's rights as well.)
The national debt is one thing,as is the individual portion of that debt. Our national sin-debt is described, individually, as an insurmountable amount. (The Parable of the UnForgiving Servant) The fact is, we cannot hope to pay it on our own. So we either default on the debt and face the consequences: (debtor's prison for the rest of our lives) or Someone foots the bill. Jesus came to foot the bill, so to speak. His certificate of Payment of Debt is the Resurrection, and that event guarantees the resurrection of our loved ones who have gone before us in Him.
There is plenty of solid evidence for the Resurrection, a few of my favorite books on the topic include; Resurrection by Hank Hannegraaff, Did Jesus Rise From The Dead? by Antony Flew and Gary Habermas, The Resurrection of Jesus, Gary Habermas, and an oldie but goody, Simon Greenleaf's, The Testimony of The Evangelists, The Gospels Examined by the Rules of Evidence. Even for believers, they are a great read, they will confirm the faith of believers, and give skeptics some food for thought.
