God is justice to forgive us when we repent from our sins

God cause us to suffer so that we know how greatful he is at the end for all to know Him and worship Him just as how Job suffered in the Bible by loosing al his properties and even his wife just to see his faith in God

Yes,he does to test our faith. He is the creator of everything,,I mean both evil and good. Isaiah 45:7

It's God who punished man for his sins,,,his punishment to man is suffering like sickness,broken marriages,unproductive businesses, unemployment,childlessness,untimely deaths etc are the few things that fall under suffering. He was the same God who made Satan to be evil.

Job's suffering was from satan not God

Yes is true that Job's suffering was from satan but let us go through our Bibles again, we wil see that Job was a very weathy man and a servant of God so one day satan said to God that Job worships Him the Lord because of his possessions so God should allow him take all from him. The Bible says God agreed but warned satan not to touch the heart /soul of Job, satan destroyed every thing Job had and even Job's own wife left him, people adviced him to curse the God he serves but Job never did so. Now back to the question and to my answer you will see that God allowed satan to make Job suffer so that they see his faith in Him the Most High. So when we go into some situation of hardship which is suffering is from God just to see our faith in Him. He alone knows our begining and our end so He said in every thing give thanks to the Lord

what will almight gain from making us suffer? Jesus said in revealation that he chasten who he loves. Just as mother punishes her ward when he errs, so as God punishes us when we sin against him. He does that for our own sake. But the suffering that righteous people go through is not from God either. Jesus again said in the book of John, "the world will hate you even as they hated me". Peter said count it a pleasing if you suffer for the sake of Christ but dont suffer for sake of a sin. Pray
