It is natural to question “why” bad things occur to those who are trying to live a good and godly life. How can a good, holy, and righteous God who is fully sovereign suffer or allow such bad things to occur in this world? This is a very challenging question. To reach the proper answer, we must approach the question from the proper perspective – that the reality is that man is not good by nature, we are sinful and corrupt, and that this world is broken and sinful and any good in this world comes down from above from God. When we have that understanding, we can approach trial with the proper perspective, to not wonder “why” things happen but focus on the “Who” (Jesus Christ) that will sustain us in the midst of it.
