Do not faint #2
Another demonstration nationwide was scheduled but it does not hurt the government. It hurts the people trying to get to work, school & appointments. The government made an offer so we will see what happens.
The college boys laid a sidewalk into the Estrelita's dorm so Onessy's wheelchair could pass. So kind!

We are told not to faint in prayer and not to faint in our confidence and finally not to faint in perseverance.
The fourth area is not to faint in our preparation. Galatians 6:9 says, “We will reap if we faint not”. Sowing is a difficult part of being a farmer. You have to discern the times as well as physically plant every acre. You must stay prepared in Bible study, prayer and worship if you are going to continue moving with God.
Fifth, Ephesians 3:13 says, “I desire that you faint not” and here Paul was referring to trusting God. Starting is not a problem with most Christians. It is continuing and keeping the trust level high even when things appear to be off track. I have to put everything in His hands and then trust He will make of it what He desires.
Sixth, we are not to faint in well doing. II Thessalonians 3:13 says, “Faint not in well doing”. It is easy to serve a church or pastor you like. But what about when you do not agree or you just do not like a certain personality? God says that is no excuse and you are to continue in well doing regardless of the person or object placed in in front of you.
Finally, it is necessary to be patient and wait on God and not faint. Hebrews 12:5 says, “Nor faint when you are rebuked”. It takes time to become whom God desires you to be. This means that you will make mistakes and correction by God or by elders is part of God’s plan. We cannot quit because we mess up or because we are rebuked. Hang in there and God will bring you through!
