God never promised us a problem-free life. He did promise that He could use our pain and turn it into goodness. Know that every moment of stretching, discomfort, or pain will be used to develop you.
You might have felt like you would succumb to the rain. You might even have felt like the heat would never cease. In spite of it all, despite of what your senses said, you have grown stronger and more resilient.
God always presents us with the choice to listen or the results of addressing matters from our perspective. He uses both options to show the rewards for our obedience in listening (victory) or the consequences in our inattention (defeat).
