(Proverbs 24:10 KJV) If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
If we knew when the crazy driver was going to pull out in front of us we would have no worries about accidents. If we knew when someone was going to break into our home we could have the police waiting for them. Unfortunately, life doesn’t work that way. We are often taken by surprise.
What can we do about it? Develop habits that reduce risk. It is not a bad habit to look both ways after a light turns green because someone may be running the red. It is a positive thing to wash your hands on a regular basis. It is also a bit of insurance to spend focused time each day with the Lord and in the word. We all get distracted but we tend to go with our training and habits.
So? Bad days will happen. With a little preparation we can make them less bad, or even glorious.
