No, I don't understand why some things are the way they are. You can just watch the news and see we have 'trials dark on every hand.' Some people don't watch the news because they think it is too depressing and/or upsetting. We must remember that 'we cannot understand all the ways God leads us to that blessed promised land.' He uses examples of sin and consequence, obedience and blessings, and His faithfulness all around us. Do we see it or turn a blind eye? 'He will guide us with His eye and we will follow till we die' should be our answer. Yes, we are tested by temptations and the cruelty of the world and ask 'why Lord, why?' I can't answer that for you but if you look back on your by-gone days, you may understand your past struggles 'better by and by.'
'God’s nature is not affected by time, place, people, or circumstances. He never makes a mistake in what He says or does, because His knowledge is perfect, His sovereignty is complete, and all is within His sight. Every promise is guaranteed in Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 1:20). For all our days, He’s the One we can count on.' [intouch.org]
