When You Do Not at First Gain Victory, Still Believe!

In preparation of a discussion on Psalm 22, I read the following quote in John Calvin’s commentary on the Psalm:

Faith does not gain the victory at the first encounter, but after receiving many blows, and after being exercised with many tossings, she at length comes forth victorious. ~J.C.

May you, when faced in rigorous struggles of faith, continue to cling to your God, and in the end, rise victorious.
