Hi Spriggy.

The Bible is filled with people who faced great trials. I don't believe that the Lord "puts" these things in our paths, but I do believe that He can deliver us from anything that comes against us. I think you will like these verses:

Judges 6:12-16 "And the Angel of the LORD appeared to him, and said to him, "The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!" Gideon said to Him, "O my lord, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His miracles which our fathers told us about, saying, "Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt?' But now the LORD has forsaken us and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites." Then the LORD turned to him and said, "Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?" So he said to Him, "O my Lord, how can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house." And the LORD said to him, "Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man.""

Notice that the Lord said "I will be with you, and YOU shall defeat the Midianites..." Even still, things don't always go the way that seems most logical to us...

Judges 7:2 "And the LORD said to Gideon, "The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against Me, saying, "My own hand has saved me.'"

I hope you read the whole account. God bless.

Simus
