There are only few men to whom suffering can be spared because they consciously work on themselves. Read more:

The question Is suffering necessary? is a basic one and today I read a message from Bertha Dudde about it and bring it here:

 

Necessity of suffering.

20. January 1942. B.D. NR. 2217.

Suffering is to have you men come to your senses that you still walk wrong ways on earth, that you are still not purified in your thinking or that you are still a long way from God. When you do not work on yourselves, when you believe to no longer need upbringing, you stop in your spiritual development, and then God must send suffering to you, so that you become conscious of your faults and you join him intimately in prayer. Only then a small measure of suffering will be necessary that you seek the closeness with God, and he can take it again away from you when your thinking is straightened out. But mostly mankind stands in furthest God distance, and then it also does not find back to him through suffering. Then men rise up against the power which they powerlessly stand facing, and then the more they have to bear greatest suffering. Because if God takes suffering from them, then they fall back into their old faults and their arrogance; they neither recognize God nor their imperfection, and so they do not strive towards God by trying to shape themselves to perfection. There are only few men to whom suffering can be spared because they consciously work on themselves, and there are only few who God can approach, that he helps them bearing the suffering when such also cannot pass them for the sake of mankind. And that is why earth will be afflicted in a way that one sorrowful event takes over from another, and a great distress will come over men whose earth walk does not correspond to divine will. Because hard misery will change man when it appears unbearable to him, and that is the purpose of suffering. God is always prepared with his help when men call upon him, and they can soon make the greatest suffering ineffective themselves through intimate prayer. But how seldom find men the way to him; how seldom a deep, childlike prayer rises up to the father in heaven that he can lean towards the petitioner and fulfil his request. Men become hard and reserved where they trustingly asking can achieve everything. And that is why they increase the measure of their sufferings; they drive themselves so to speak deeper and deeper into trouble and misery, and they do not recognize with this the love of God, which wants to help them. Amen. B.D. NR. 2217.

In John 5:14 we read: Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.

God can take suffering away from us when our thinking is straightened out. It is our thinking. We have to straighten it out.
