There are things we will never understand, and there are things we want to ask God when we see Him, like why do the wicked seem to prosper, why do people hurt people, why did my loved one die so young, why do I have cancer,? and the list could go on but why does it seem evil prospers, while good struggles?
In reality, I believe these questions will not matter once we are standing before God for we will be face to face with our Creator.
We are all born the same, we all live in the same world, we all feel the curse of sin on our lives, people die because of sins curse, people become sick because of sins curse, people hurt others, we lie, steal, cheat, live immorally, we act this way and these things happen because of sin, sin separates us from God, from perfection, from His righteousness, His perfect way and will for our lives, now does this ease the pain of life? No, not really, but when we turn back to God we have His promise that He is with us, and that brings us peace and gives us the strength to carry on.
I think we all have doubts and questions like Thomas did when Jesus was resurrected, and said he wouldn't believe until he touched Him, we fear what we do not know, we fear being made a fool of, we fear to be wrong. I have learned that no matter what even if my questions are not answered now, they will be.
I do not know your trials or fears but there are none that are new or far from God, He does care about what is going on, His way may not seem like the best but it is.
It's okay to have questions, it's okay to ask God these questions, but in the end, we should have the attitude Jesus did before He was crucified when He said. ”Father, if You are willing, take this cup away from Me — nevertheless, not My will, but Yours, be done.” Luke 22:42
Trusting God is a choice each of us must make, you may be saying that is easy for you to say, but you don't know what I am going through, and I would answer you this way; you're right, but you, in turn, do not know what I am going through.
I can say in complete confidence God will always take care of me and I can trust Him, He has delivered me from evil, saved me from death, provided in ways only He could, spiritually, physically, financially. He saved my family, kept me out of jail and gave me multiple opportunities to come to Him.
What we need to know and what we get to know are up to God who reveals truth and answers as He sees fit, this might not be the answers we want to hear but it is the truth.
Life is to short to dwell on the things we do not control, let's dwell on Christ, love others as we are loved by Him and help others break free from the curse of sin and death by living like Jesus with His help daily.
I think we will be like Thomas when we see God we will just fall down before Him and declare my Lord and God for He is worthy to be praised.
God’s word says:
“The wicked say, “How can God know? Does the Most High know everything?” Look at them — the wicked! They are always at ease, and they increase their wealth. Did I purify my heart and wash my hands in innocence for nothing? For I am afflicted all day long and punished every morning. If I had decided to say these things aloud, I would have betrayed your people. When I tried to understand all this, it seemed hopeless until I entered God’s sanctuary. Then I understood their destiny. Indeed, you put them in slippery places; you make them fall into ruin. How suddenly they become a desolation! They come to an end, swept away by terrors. Like one waking from a dream, Lord, when arising, you will despise their image.”Psalms 73:11-20 CSB
“You have heard that it was said, Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven. For he causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward will you have? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers and sisters, what are you doing out of the ordinary? Don’t even the Gentiles do the same? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”Matthew 5:43-48 CSB
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus, because the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2 CSB
“See what great love the Father has given us that we should be called God’s children — and we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it didn’t know him. Dear friends, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that when he appears, we will be like him because we will see him as he is. And everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself just as he is pure.”1 John 3:1-3 CSB
