I'm reminded of a passage from the Book of Wisdom; “If you want to know God, prepare yourself for an ordeal.” According to Joel......"prepare yourself for the good times".

I don't know about the "Book of Wisdom," but I know the Bible says, "Looking unto Jesus...who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross..."Hebrews 12:2. Joel emphasizes that the hard times now are meant for our good and for a future blessing God has in store. Totally scriptural.
