God wants excellence, but often we are all too willing to settle for "good" or "fine".

Because we are so stubborn, so pigheaded, so blinded, so petty and so small, because we lack the ability to know what we truly need and what's best for us, He often has to mold us through suffering. If we hold on to God through the rough times he can transform us from "good" to "great", from "eh", to "excellence".
Romans 5:3-5

And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
