View Wesley's Notes for 1 Peter 4:12
4:12 Wonder not at the burning which is among you - This is the literal meaning of the expression. It seems to include both martyrdom itself, which so frequently was by fire, and all the other sufferings joined with, or previous to, it; which is permitted by the wisdom of God for your trial. Be not surprised at this.

1Pe 4:12 The fiery trial. Persecution. As though some strange thing happened unto you. Christians, with the world against them, must expect to endure such things.

When nothing seems to go right. You try and try, then you try again, then it comes to you this must be a test of my character. How will I respond.

We must have scriptural boundaries on our thinking when we are tried and tested to utmost, think of it only for what it is and do not associate it with anything or anyone else. It is victory in being tried by God, for your faith and trial are no mismatch.
