The wisdom of God

"The wisdom of God tells us that God will bring about the best possible results, by the best possible means, for the most possible people for the longest possible time." (from God: As He Longs for You to See Him by Chip Ingram, p. 128) If I believe this, then I have to conclude that God is allowing/using my current circumstances to do something in me and/or through me and that it couldn't be done better any other way. If I really believe that God is all-wise, then I must trust Him, and I must remember that He has not promised that I will always be happy and comfortable. He is giving me what's best for me, from His wisdom, to make me more like HIs Son, Jesus Christ. He has promised to always be with me, and that I will have a home with Him eternally.
So, can I trust Him? Can I stop wanting my life to be different, and spend more time seeking His wisdom? How can I not trust Him?
