We will encounter problems, hardships and difficulties, according to God's will, to test our faith. God wants to grow us through these tough situations, and to improve our responses and attitudes. If we complain and criticize in times of hardship and persecution, we have in fact complained to God. But the good news is that the real Judge, Jesus Christ, is coming again. He hears our complaints and protests. He will soon return to judge this world. He will judge everyone—believers and unbelievers.
