“If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.” Proverbs 24:10 ESV
If we give up in adversity it reveals our weakness.
Perseverance is a quality that few possess but many need. When adversity comes our way we may look for the easier path. Like water that will find the path of least resistance, we too may live our life in a way to avoid the more difficult course. In so doing we miss the opportunity that will result in the greatest reward. If we give up when adversity comes it will reveal our weakness and we could miss the greatest blessings God has in store for us.
Lord, I ask for your strength to persevere in adversity. I know the path of least resistance is not always the path you have chosen for me. Give me wisdom to know the direction to travel and the power to press on through the challenges I may face.
