“Life aint no crystal stair…” Langston Hughes
It tends to hit us left and right. We can let the adversities of life beat us down or lift us up. The choice is ours. However, we don’t have to wonder about what to do. The Word of God gives us direction for every situation. Let’s consider what the Lord says:
“If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.” Proverbs 24:10 ESV
Seems like a choice is set before us, we can faint or not faint. “Fainting” can be synonymous with complaining, worrying, and stressing yourself out. According to the Word, fainting means our strength is small. Not with the God we serve!
Sis, we want to encourage you to faint not! Faint not when the struggles of life come up against you! Life must be encountered not in our own strength, but in the strength of our Creator! My friend, you are powered with the Holy Spirit!
Struggles, adversity, and suffering are promised to us as followers of Christ. And because we are children of God, we have been gifted with an adversary, but faint not! The battle has already been won! In Christ, you are victorious! In Christ, you are more than a conqueror. And in Christ, there is nothing small about you!
As you deal with the difficulties of life, be encouraged by this truth…
Life is amazing, complex, and tough, but faint not sis, you got this. Not by your might nor your power but by His Spirit.
Peace and Blessings
