God Never Gives Us More Than We Can Bear

As Christians, our steps are ordered by the Lord, and nothing ever happens to us that is not either by His direct action or by His permission.
   
      "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he
       delighteth in his way." (Psalms 37:23 KJV)
       
      "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ
       Jesus concerning you." (1 Thessalonians 5:18 KJV)
Most of the time, our life in Christ is filled with joy and peace.
           "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but
            righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy
            Ghost." (Romans 14:17 KJV)
           "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence
            is fulness of joy: at thy right hand there are
            pleasures for evermore." (Psalms 16:11 KJV)
However, very bad things sometimes happen to very good people. For instance, Jesus Himself was nailed by His hands and feet to a cross to die; Peter and Paul were both executed by Emperor Nero. Many early Christians were eaten alive by lions or burned to death.

Why is that? We don't know. It is not God's intention that we understand everything at this time.

       
      "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now
       I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known."
       (1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV)
What we do know, however is this: God is with us all the time, giving us whatever strength we may need for the situation.
   
         "Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD
          upholdeth him with his hand." (Psalms 37:24 KJV)
And after all the troubles are over, we will be with Him forever in paradise.
         "And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, to day
          shalt thou be with me in paradise." (Luke 23:43 KJV)
         "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and
          there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
          neither shall there be any more pain: for the former
          things are passed away." (Revelation 21:4 KJV)
         "and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever."
          (Psalms 23:6b KJV)
