I recommend this book and a study of the following sections of scripture.
Read the story of Joseph and how he was sold into Egypt. When he finally showed himself to his brothers he said, Gen 50:19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?
Gen 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
Joseph said he was in the place of God and that God meant this unto him for good!
In Job we learn that God allowed Satan to afflict him. God could have chosen not to allow Satan to do anything to Job. If God did not allow it, it would have never happened.
Study the life of Paul and see that he endured much physical suffering among other things.
2Co 11:24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.
2Co 11:25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;
2Co 11:26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
2Co 11:27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
Paul continues to talk about being hungry and suffering need.
Phi 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
The very next verse is the well known "I can do all things..."
Phi 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Phi 4:14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.
This book is a scriptural book.
