Does God, in His omnipotence, cause all suffering?

This is something I have been thinking about and studying in a book we received at work. What do you think?

I think God allows suffering to make us and our walk with God stronger.

Of course, I'd rather not suffer...

Hmmm...very thought provoking question.
Like Elizabeth said, I think God allows us to go through trials to make us stronger.
But I also think that we bring a lot of things on ourselves by going our own way rather than God's way.
There are times when we don't understand the suffering that we face, but we must trust that God is with us, and He cares for us no matter what!

Sometimes God "allows" things to happen to us but he doesn't "cause" them to happen. We have free will, Satan is active in the world, etc.
