What Do We Think of the Day of Adversity?

Read Proverbs 22-24.
Solomon said,
10 If you faint in the day of adversity,
Your strength is small.
(Proverbs 24:10, NKJV).
Yet, from the time I became a Christian, I have heard many Christians declare that God should not let us suffer! They are already fainting before the day of adversity even arrives! If Jesus Christ our Lord, the only perfect and innocent one, was not exempt from suffering, why do we think we should be?
Tough times will come. Rather than wishing that they never would, we do better to prepare for them.
