We live in a fallen world. Those who are faithful to God distinguish themselves by how they face or handle the problems that come their way. It's a matter of trust. While we at times need help (we cannot live in isolation), it's not the outside sources that provide true peace and happiness. It comes from within - from letting Christ be at home in our hearts. "And the peace of God which transcends all understanding shall guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:7).
