Why Do Good People Suffer Afflictions?

I am sure that most of us have said, life's not fair. We probably said hello because something happened to us that was not our fault but there was to suffer the effect of it. The good news is, we don't have to succumb on the unfairness of the world.Why Do Good People Suffer

Why do good people suffer afflictions? Since there is an adversary, the devil links to steal, kill and destroy. He does not favor anyone so that all of us are his target. However, we are not hopeless because he targets us. We could fight back and win by believing and speaking the word of God over our situation. Jesus declared we would have tribulation on the planet but be of good cheer because He has overcome the world. That statement should let us know that it is not over, we have a chance. Why Do Good People Suffer

We may never hurt anyone or do wrong intentionally but we are going to still suffer attacks with the devil because he is within the world and as long as he's here, he will make a panic attack. However, the Lord has told us to perform two things when these attacks come. He explained in Ephesians 6:10-11 be strong inside the Lord and in the strength of his might and hang on the whole armor of God we may be able to stand contrary to the wiles of the devil.

When something bad happen to us we generally will look at the person and obtain angry with him but it is not him, it's the devil working through him. Ephesians 6:12 reveal that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness on this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness inside the heavenly places. So people are not our problem so we should love them as God has commanded us but we have to do warfare using the one who has caused the challenge. Ephesians 6:14-17 tell us how you can do warfare with Satan. It said stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having placed on the breastplate of righteousness and having shod your feet with the preparation with the gospel of peace: above all, taking the shield of religion with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation along with the sword of the spirit, which is word of God. The complete armor of God is proof against the devil as well as the bible tell us when we resist him, he can flee from us.

Bad things can happen to good people but there exists a weapon that is available to all of us that will stop the attack with the devil however, it won't do us worthwhile if it is not used.
