Morning Thought: Stand firm through the stages of life. Every stage brings its own struggles. When you've overcome one area, a new set of challenges await. The temptations of a young man of God are different than an older one. Nonetheless, they are temptations. But always remember, God's joy and goodness will outshine the assaults. His people are a blessed people. “Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle…How blessed are the people who are so situated; how blessed are the people whose God is the LORD!” (Psalms 144:1, 15, NASB).
