Day 104 – Strength in Times of Adversity
‘If you are weak in a crisis, you are weak indeed.’ Proverbs 24:10 (GNV)
‘If you fall to pieces in a crisis, there wasn’t much to you in the first place.’ Proverbs 24:10 (MSG)
The mark of the strength or commitment of a relationship is not how well they are doing when times are good, but rather how well they are doing when times are bad. It is in the time of crisis that the measure of your real strength will show. If you lose control of your emotions and begin to talk negatively like someone without hope, and even begin to ‘curse God’ during your trying times, it shows you never had faith to begin with.
‘If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.’ (KJV). Those who cave in, give up, and quit when faced with adversity were never strong to begin with. But if in such challenging times you do not quit but pray to God for strength while exercising patience, God will surely give you the wisdom to overcome your adversity.
This is one reason why you must endeavour to know your God – walk with Him on a daily basis; spend time to meditate on the Word and build up your faith. Then you will be able to firmly resist the devil and do great things for the Lord, even in times of crisis (Daniel 11:32). I pray that your strength will not fail you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
