God created us to want life and He has provided life through faith in Jesus Christ. The devil would much rather we miss out on life, especially eternal life. John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” How might you intentionally remind yourself that true life is only found in a relationship with Jesus Christ this week? How might you remind your family or some friends? Make a plan today for the week to come.

Take a few moments in prayer this morning and each day this week to thank the Lord for protecting you from getting some of the things you may have wanted that He knew would bring you harm and misery. God is a great protector and knows better than we do. In His mercy, He sometimes withholds from us the things that we desire that will not bring us the life He has promised.

Ask a friend or accountability partner to help you remember that following Christ is actually better than treasuring other things more than Jesus. Provide a few specific ways that your friend could remind you and invite them to help. Perhaps consider setting up a time to call each other over your lunch break to share with each other some words of truth, encouragement and prayer.
