    Your question has been asked for thousands of years, and probably the basis for many religions not working out. depending in what you believe you have 2 choices:
    a) he does not exist (I can see qoutes from the bible coming my way)
    b) he does not want to (and here I expect even more quotes).
    Fact is, no matter how you see it, you are going to have to die to find out ( or not, if answer a)

    I have a child (she's an adult NOW - off to college in 2weeks - proud mom here!) but during her toddler years - I figured she'd probably have teething pain as her adult teeth grew in - I would NEVER take her prematurely to the dentist - pay for surgery to remove ALL her teeth so she wouldn't experience the pain Why? Because when she goes through it all - it will eventually be for her benefit. Pain is fleeting it won't last long - death is inevitable BUT it will pay off in the end too...

    - the most loving thing I could do as an EXCELLENT PARENT (if I do say so myself)? plan ahead and have 'ambusol' & kiddie 'tylenol' ready & waiting for the day the pain came - the same with falling down while learning to walk, relationship problems as a teen, & even marital issues as an adult ... Mom will be here to help see her thru -  that's a parents duty - ALL that to say - God's an EXCELLENT DAD!!!

    Of course God is powerful enough to stop injustices. I believe He does not do it is because he created mankind with choice (free will) in all things. God wants us to choose Him, and among other things that means we would choose justice over injustice. I believe that at times God does intervene, always for the greater good, but for the most part it is up to us. God puts emphasis on "forever" , not this relatively short 70 years plus.

    It is matter of communication skill

    God is powerful enough to create each and every thing of the universe as well as destroy each and everything created by him or created by his children.
    God is very very rich, powerful and loving father who pamper his children by providing them every thing they wish.
    He gave them wisdom to desire, strength to create, this beautiful body to experience and enjoy and created this beutiful world to live for his children.
    It seems he still does not stop injustice because he loves every child and let them make free choices nothing is good and nothing is bad for him. It is the matter of choice of the child how to use the gifts of God and how to communicate his or her demands to the God.
    All is needed to understand and learn the language in which God communicate with his children.

    Your question is a result of your projection, "GOD", or THE DEVINE, or whatever name you give it, being a reality outside yourself.

    God is in deed kind and “[His] anger is shown from heaven against all the evil and wrong things people do.” Romans 1:18, 21, 26-28

    God gave all of us free will and the ability to choose our actions; as evidenced through Adam and Eve in the garden.

    Because of their disobedience, sin was ushered into the world and “the world has been groaning ever since.”

    We are living in the consequences of their original sin.

    But God is available and waiting for us to choose Him. He is waiting for us to live a path of righteousness.

    He allows injustices and “bad” things to happen for a number of reasons:
        To help build our trust in Him.
        To help us understand His sufficiency for all of our needs.
        To help build our reliance on Him.
        To draw us closer into a personal relationship with Him.
        To help us build a stronger testimony and walk through Him.
        To use as an example of His love, grace, mercy and power.
        To show His workings of modern-day miracles.
        To show that He will bless us in spite of.
        To give people time to choose a path of righteousness and right living before he wipes “it” all out! But we have to choose Him!

        And no worries, because in the end, we win!
