Proverbs of a 35 yr old man.
We need more private victories. Victories where you did the right thing and no one is looking but God alone. Victory like when your driving alone, and you resist the temptation to go way pass the speed limit. Or when your alone on your phone and you resist the temptation to look at things you shouldn't. Yes even when your alone in your thoughts and you resist temptation to slander your neighbor. These private victories are preparing you to persevere under more fiery trials. Blessed are those who endure temptation. For when their faith is proven to be genuine they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him. Each small victory is gaining strength for the Goliath's in you life.
