“FAINTNESS OF HEART is a common infirmity”- Charles Spurgeon. If you look around you at the wickedness and evil, men’s hearts failing them for fear and unrestrained sin, watching Revelation events unfold before our very eyes, wondering when the next seal is going to be broken; then you can easily become faint and lose heart.
Even king David, the great giant slayer uttered the same sentiment, “I had fainted unless I believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living”. Yet, where is your faith? Is not faith believing without seeing? Is not hope unseen? “For we hope for things we do not see”. These are the days that produce greatness. Light shines the brightest in darkness. Faith by definition is a tested and tried thing. It endures affliction and persecution. It holds fast to that which it does not see, but knows to be true. “Blessed are those who have not seen, yet still believe.”
One day, Jesus is coming back for me. One day, I will be with Him forever in eternity. One day, all will be made right and He will rule and reign. This world is not my home. My circumstances are temporary. Any affliction I endure is fleeting. His Word remains sure. On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. I will not be moved. “For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. My heart faints within me!” Job 19:25-27 ESV#runyourrace
