Why do bad things happen to good people?

There are a lot of bad things that happen to good people.  Satan wants us to think that God let it happen.  However, God does not control everything here on earth.  It is Satan who prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone he may devour.  God wants everyone saved.  He doesn’t want anyone to perish.  So, if he controlled everything then everyone would be saved.  However,  we have “free will” to do as we want.  People have free will to be evil to other people.   We also have free will to destroy our own bodies.  For instance,  I have a friend named Frances, when her husband died of lung cancer, she was angry at God because she felt God took her husband.  However,  her husband smoked a lot and because of his smoking he got lung cancer and died.  Satan is the author of cancer.  However,  God tells us that my people perish for lack of knowledge.  By His stripes we are healed, that means He took all our sickness and disease on the cross.  It says anyone who hangs on a tree is cursed.  Jesus took our curse on the tree so we wouldn’t be cursed.  We receive our healing as we believe.  So,  God can take the bad things that Satan meant for evil and turn them around for good.  Just recently we had a mass shooting in Las Vegas.  Some people are saying, “Why did God let this happen?”  However,  God does not control everything that happens on this earth.  The shooter had free will to shoot who he wanted.  Also, in Ephesians 6:12 it says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Some people give Satan an inroad into their lives and Satan works evil through them.  Satan wants us to doubt God’s love for us, he wants us to think God wasn’t there for us, he wants us to be angry at God so we stop going to church, we stop reading the Bible and are bound by anger and bitterness, so we can’t work for the Kingdom.  Bottom line:  If it is good, it is from God.  If it is bad, it is from Satan.  Please don’t stop loving God because of your circumstance.  He will never leave you nor forsake you.  He loves you!  You are his child!  You will come out the victor in the end!  Don’t be deceived by the deceiver!  Get mad at Satan and stomp on his head!  Do something for the kingdom in spite of your circumstance.  Love and worship God just to piss Satan off, He will flee!
