Ecclesiastes 8: 12-13(NIV)
12 Although a wicked person who commits a hundred crimes may live a long time, I know that it will go better with those who fear God, who are reverent before him. 13 Yet because the wicked do not fear God, it will not go well with them, and their days will not lengthen like a shadow.
As humans, we naturally wonder "why" all of the time. As Christians, we probably ask "why" more! You have some trial or issue and you ask, "God, why me?" "Why must I go through this?!" It's natural, but everything is going to be alright. Remember Job? God tested him because he knew he could take it and hold on to his faith. Going through his tests, Job remembered to give God praise through the bad times. It's the same for us. God sees our faith and he has a blessing for us. Being a Christian doesn't make you immune from trouble, but, good news, it you keep your faith and love God, it's gonna be alright. Be blessed!
