Today's Photograph . . . . He Wants Us To Be Prepared For What Life May Throw At Us   (MQ) 
Bible Study Verse
James 1:12
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him. (NIV)

Scripture says that God doesn't tempt us; but this passage shows that He does want us to build strength through staying the course. Just like we use our compass or GPS in the outdoors to keep us on course to our destination.

God accepts and loves us as we are. And, like the good Father He is, wants us to be prepared for what life may throw at us.
(Brent B)

Action Point
God gives us a promise and His word to help us persevere. Be encouraged and stay steady on your way.

Sportsmen's Tip of the Day 
One of the hardest things for me to do is stay with a hunt plan when it isn't producing game. I have a hard time sitting still long enough for undisturbed game to pass my way. If you've made good preparation and scouting, staying with your plan is the best bet. The exception is when clear evidence indicates your prey is moving elsewhere.
