But He knows the way that I take; When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold (Job 23:10, NKJV)
Difficult times that are bitter to our souls put our belief in the loving sovereignty of God to the test.  They reveal our basic attitudes toward His perfect control.  If we see His hand in everything our complaints will be replaced with settled trust.  No one has said that when you accepted Christ as your Saviour you would have a trouble-free life.  

It is our responses to these problems that are important.  It is the tough times of life that can lead us into closer and sweeter fellowship with God and greater fruitfulness in His service. Men and women of God are fashioned on the anvil of affliction.  The pressures of life can be used of the Holy Spirit to mould us more and more into the image of Christ.  Everything depends on our responses
