Proverbs Challenge (Day 24)

Welcome to Day 24 of the Proverbs Challenge, and today, we are reading through Chapter 24 of this incredible book of the Bible

Here’s the verse that I want to talk through, with you all:

“If you falter in a time of trouble, how small is your strength!”

Proverbs 24:10

My Thoughts: When I first read this, the exclamation mark really bugged me! Because I felt as if the reader was being scoffed at. But, when I looked at King James Version (which is as close as we can get to the original text), the exclamation mark isn’t there. So, this has been added for emphasis, to Solomon’s original point

My Reflection: Times of trouble can be a good thing by showing us who we really are and how our character has developed, from walking alongside the Holy Spirit

Thinking of Jeremiah – he questioned God because of the trouble he was facing, but then God asked Jeremiah how he ever expected to face significant challenges if little ones tired him out (Jeremiah 12:5)

Therefore, one thing in life is certain; challenges will come, so the question I ask is; what is the point of complaining?

Because of this, I have realised that what we face today is the training ground, for strength, to get us through difficulty in the future

Plus, the enemy isn’t going to put his demonic forces on God’s children, unless He thinks we are a threat

So, as the amazing Apostle Paul says (Romans 5:3-5) ”let’s rejoice” in the times of trouble because as a Christian, my strength comes from the Lord, and He is with me for all of my days!

What did Chapter 24 reveal to you?

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
