In one way or another, we all have experience trials and tribulations if not persecution.
It is very easy for us to immediately think, it is not fair to us, and why would this thing happen to us....Yes, we all tend to think like this right away when problems occur or appear.
Trials and tribulations or even persecution would happen to us as the Bible indicated that and we need to go in agreement with God and be prepared as well for its coming. We need to realize it's the reality and it will happen to us, even believers of Jesus Christ.
It made no differences if we are believers or not, things that are bad would happen to us as well. If not then our God would look like an unfair judge, He cannot side with us believers and only allowing the bad things happen to those unbelievers. Good and Bad things are happening to both believers and unbelievers alike.
We can act and think different when bad things happen to us, we can remain calm, collected and still trusting God that He will help us to go through tough time. We can act and think different than the world. We can go against the current, and we can remain calm in the Lord by believing that God is good and He is still on the Throne.
Our attitude during tough time is very important, there were many times I have lost my temper, I have been very demanding to what I want from God...and I think....God just wanted to test our attitude during tough time, and see how we behave...whether we behave in a way that we did show we trust and love God, or we behave in a bad and negative way, thinking God did not love you, or treat you right, our attitude then shows a lot our spiritual maturity as well.
We all have acted badly at times....so we need to remind ourselves from time to time to get our attitude straighten out, and be thankful, and trust that God is good all the times.
