Bring things of your past to the present in your mind and ask yourself, why is that not happening now? or, what should be happening now?, etc. We can now see life's circumstances in a way that something has been learned from them and set continuing guidelines that will keep negatives away, especially in these four critical areas

Life makes some people better and others bitter. The way the Creator comforts us.(2Corinthians 1:3).is to get us off our butts and to get us to take life by storm! In doing this, logic is a tool.

Is it worth it? God could make it so that you have a charmed life.(Psalms 105:13-15), but He knows.(Revelation 2:9 ".....I know your works and tribulation and poverty.....").severe trials are what gets you the highest ultimate reward. To that end, God will try you to the nth degree. It is part of the learning we are here for. But, God will one day make it all up to you. And even now you can relax a bit:.Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."

Often, as.Matthew Henry's Commentary.has said."Outward losses drive good people to their prayers, but bad people to their curses".

Many people think money would 'rescue' them and solve all their worries, not realizing that money brings a whole new set of things needing rescue from:.Ecclesiastes 5:10-20. The Creator's group wants to rescue you from this world of confusion, heartache, etc., designed to be that way so we could use our brains to find a rescuer:.Galatians 1:4. If you don't ask, you're on your own:.Matthew 7:7 "Ask and it shall be given you, seek and you find, knock and it is opened unto you."

The Creator could make it so you never have a problem, but what good is that for learning character? You learn character by coming to overstand.how your ego works and choosing the way of higher standards.

Look at Adam's example and at Solomon's, the richest man that ever was:.Psalms 66:9-12 "Which holds our soul in life and suffers not our feet to be moved. For you, O God, have proved us. You have tried us, as silver is tried. You brought us into the net. You laid affliction upon our loins. You have caused men to ride over our heads. We went through fire and through water.(this referring to ancient Israel's trek in the wilderness for forty years and then their entrance into the promised land). But you brought us out into a wealthy place." 1Corinthians 3:13 "Every man's work shall be made manifest, for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is." Jeremiah 17:10 "I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways and according to the fruit of his doings." Psalms 139:23 "Search me, O God and know my heart. Try me and know my thoughts."

1Corinthians 10:13 "There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man, but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able, but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it."

The Creator works now in this life with first the trials to form.character.(Proverbs 3:12-18; 1Peter 1:6,7), then a high position in His government on Earth that He wants us individually to obtain, as shown by the life of ancient Joseph and by the fact that when one seeks God, he or she is then on God's side.(Joshua chapter 24), that is, in alignment with God:.2Chronicles 7:14; 13:18; 14:10-13; 15:2

And because God is responsible for the natures humans have, there is no need to ask forgiveness from God for anything, as some religious people think they should do for sinning, sinning meaning 'missing the mark' of God's high standard and then repenting, etc., etc.

Some may not know through your soul as yet, though the soul knows each of us intimately:.Jeremiah 4:22 "For my people is foolish.(original is 'antagonistic'), they have not known me. They are sottish.(original is 'foolish').children and they have none understanding. They are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.(and why?)."

Thankfully evil is only temporary and goodness will be forever.

But even if it be so that you do not know Him.(still of the ego level bereft of higher consciousness), it is His will that you have trials.(*), as He has set up the law of reap/sow, so that even from the ego level one can learn lessons of life. Our Creatorknows what is going on and knows you, even if you're unaware of Him.

You too will one day.(maybe right now).be called by Him for further training in this time on Earth in this experience called life, our 'human processing factory':.Ephesians 2:10; Philippians 1:29; 1Peter 3:17;.Isaiah 13:12 "I will make a man more precious than fine gold....";.1Peter 1:7..Why?

Psalms 14:4 "Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge?....."

Psalms 77:19 "Your way is in the sea and your path in the great waters and your footsteps are not known." John 17:25 "O righteous Father, the world has not known you. But I.(Emmanuel).have known you and these have known that you have sent me."

Like an engineer has to understand the stress differentials of various metals and concretes that are being considered for perhaps a long and high suspended bridge, so the Creator too has to know what is in a person's heart under stress:.Deuteronomy 8:2,16; Psalms 10:17; Proverbs 15:3. This is when the true character comes out. We come to understand who and what we really are because of the way we deal with the circumstances of life. 

God has a great overall plan to save all and you are in it too:.2Timothy 2:13

He sends and/or allows trials to continue in our lives so the opportunity can exist for us to have specific character qualities which will eventually be used in His government.

Life.(society's pressures and temptations, people and in many cases our lack of learning in knowing how to get along, who to avoid, etc.; all these present us with the need for decisions).is to learn the art of living. Even a non decision can be consequential.

Creator uses evil for His ultimate good purposes:.Deuteronomy 13:3

Even non Christians have many tests and trials. They may not know the Creator yet.(Isaiah 45:4,5), but God is preparing them in character just the same, preparing them for the time He reveals Himself to them. How can a person accelerate this?.James 4:8.

In some cases, like in ancient Pharaoh's, Creator reveals Himself first and will at some time later awaken them to be part of His family relationship. He loves us all and He is going to save the whole group of us! Some now, some later. And His grace and concern for you is sometimes evident.

God is in control of evil circumstances occurring to us and the circumstances we may now be in which are bringing us somewhere He wants. 
   A trial you have already been subject to:.1Peter 5:8.

Everyone has trials they must face daily. Job had a bunch for a great reason! Just be sure that they are not of your own causing, for what good toward a spiritual reward would that give you?

Psalms 7:9 ".....for the righteous God tries.(original also 'examine', 'prove').the hearts.(where we decide).and reins.('emotions', the impetus, energy, action, where we act out what we believe, the result of what we've accepted)."

God wants us to be close to Him, to be just like Him. God is our father, knows His ways are best and waits for us to mature into that.

Psalms 94:19 "In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul."
