Faint Not

God has made so many provisions for strength. He has promised us that He will quicken us according to His Word (2), renew us when we wait upon Him, and quicken us in His righteousness (3); (4). There are many promises concerning God’s quickening power.

One thing that often steals our energy is looking at the temporal things. As our minds are preoccupied with the details of life, we not only become mentally tired, but physically tired as well. “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day: (II Corinthians 4:16). God will provide us with what strength we need as we are obedient to receive the Word of God. “For thy Word hath quickened me” (Psalm 119:50). As we keep our eyes fixed on the Word, we do not become distracted through weariness, rather we are constantly reminded of eternal values.

The eternal value system consists of living by every Word of God (5), walking on the narrow path that leads to life (6), and living from faith to faith (7). When we look at what is unseen, we will not faint, but will gladly allow ourselves to be spent for others (8). We can do this because we know that our strength comes from an eternal source that will never run dry.
