Actually, the title I prefer because of its greater accuracy is this: Even Those Who Should Be Strong and Resilient Shall Faint. Now you see why I didn’t use it!
But that’s what this next verse says to me.
“In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst” (Amos 8:13).
This fainting results from not having the Word of God.
Historically, the Jews went through that. And it needn’t have been.
But never mind them. What about me?
When I deprive myself of God’s Word, I shall faint spiritually.
No matter how strong I am now. No matter how healthy I have been. No matter how seasoned in the faith I am.
That verse reminds me of Isaiah 40:30. I’ll put down 31, though.
“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.”
