  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Afflictions 
  common  to  all  (Job  5:7;  14:1;  Ps  34:19);  are  for  the  good  of 
  men  (James  1:2,  3,  12;  2  Cor.  12:7)  and  the  glory  of  God  (2  Cor. 
  12:7-10;  1  Pet.  4:14),  and  are  to  be  borne  with  patience  by  the 
  Lord's  people  (Ps.  94:12;  Prov.  3:12).  They  are  all  directed  by 
  God  (Lam.  3:33),  and  will  result  in  the  everlasting  good  of  his 
  people  (2  Cor.  4:16-18)  in  Christ  Jesus  (Rom.  8:35-39).
