If you faint

If you faint in the day of adversity, Your strength is small. – Proverbs 24v10

We read a lot in the word of God about facing hard times and dealing with difficulties. The reason is obvious. Life is tough and we can't afford to quit when we face opposition.

This is not real complicated. If we faint in the day of adversity our strength is indeed small. Our strength is small because we depend on the wrong strength. Our strength is small because, well our strength is small.

So what is the problem? We are depending on our strength instead of God's strength. God delights in using the weak and foolish and base things of this world to do His work. When we depend of God's strength instead of ours we never have to worry about fainting in the day of adversity.

We are only human. We are weak. We fail because there is always something bigger and stronger than we are. The battles of life not only seem insurmountable, sometimes they are when we try to handle them ourselves.

The Lord God is our strength. He is the All-mighty One. In the days of adversity His strength will never fail.
