Because you have a free will you can choose to disobey Me, but your continuous disobedience will lead you outside My hedge of protection, however you are never without ample warning. This has been so from the beginning and never changes, remember; “the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, I said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.  And the serpent said unto the woman, You shall not surely die:” Genesis 3:3-4 Her willful disobedience started all bad things happening to all people!
You are at war from the cradle to the grave, and your enemy as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8 If you play games in the middle of a battle you are definitely going to be hurt bad! Take life serious, because your enemy is!
I use the bad things as guard rails to keep you from going off My path for you, for example remember when “Joseph said to his brothers, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?  But as for you, you thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, TO SAVE MANY PEOPLES LIVES.  Now do not fear: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.  And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father’s house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years” Genesis 50:19-22.
