The one you want to hear from most, is not the one who studied it, or heard about it, or even saw it, but the one who experienced it! You have often wondered why bad things happen to good people, please consider the prophets, who spoke in My name, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.  you should count them happy which endure. You have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen in the end what I did for him; that I am very pitiful, and full of tender mercy, James 5:10-11.
Now this is worthy of thanks, if a man for conscience toward Me, endure grief, suffering wrongfully.  For what glory is it, if, you are persecuted for your faults, you should take it patiently? But if, when you do good, and suffer for it, and you take it patiently, this is acceptable with Me.  This is what you have been called too: I suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow My steps, 1 Peter 2:19-21.
Bad things happen to good people because My Holy Spirit needs a platform to display My overcoming power in human beings. Satan never changes, he still things he can get you to curse Me to My face, by causing a few bad things to happen. You prove him wrong every time you climb into bed praising Me. But do not fear, every bad thing that happens to you is common to mankind: but I am faithful, and will not allow you to be tested above what you can take; but I will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you will be able to bear it and display My power,” 1 Corinthians 10:13.
The good thing is, every time you, prove the devil wrong, you are changed, changed more into My image, moving from glory to glory, each time My Spirit displays his power in you,” 2 Corinthians 3:18. That’s why I said, “count it all joy when you are tested;  Knowing this , that when bad things happen to good people, it’s just the testing of your faith, and it’s working patience into your soul.  And if you let patience finish her work, you will be completely satisfied and , want for nothing,” James 1:2-4. By the end of the day today, you will be able to speak from new experiences. “Be a good example of a believer in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, and in purity,” 1 Timothy 4:12.
