At least, being all-powerful, just, and loving, He ought to give everyone a fair chance of obtaining the good things of this world.

The Catholic Answers

Being all-powerful, there is no reason why He ought to do our bidding as if we were all-powerful. Being just, He is not going to give us a tin trumpet and let us think that to be our real good when it is not. Being loving, He will not usually allow man to have those riches which may cause difficulties in the way of salvation. I do not want Him to say to me, “Amen, I say to you, you have had your reward.” We are Christians, and Christians are disciples of a crucified Master. We have no right to complain if we also must tread the path of suffering.
