In fact, all who want to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.

2 Timothy 3:12

He is our joy and our happiness, even as He is our peace. He is life, He is everything. So avoid the incitements and the temptations of Satan to give feelings this great prominence at the centre. Put at the centre the only One who has a right to be there, the Lord of Glory, Who so loved you that He went to the Cross and bore the punishment and the shame of your sins and died for you. Seek Him, seek His face, and all other things shall be added unto you.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Trials are to see if you believe what you say you believe.
