Morning Thought: Your journey is not a walk through a theme park where everything is planned for your pleasure. Instead, it’s a walk in the wild. The walk’s beauty surpasses the artificial, but danger is also immanent. Jesus walks with you and his Word is your compass, leading you to higher ground. This is why Paul and Barnabas were “strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, ‘Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God'” (Acts 14:22 NASB).
