LIFE WAS GIVEN TO ENJOY.
Let’s get one thing straight: God did not create this universe and give us life because He hates us and wants us to be poor and miserable. He gave us life out of His great love for us. He gave us life to enjoy life, but with life, He has also given us a choice. “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days …” (Deut. 30:19–20). Everything we do is governed by the choices we make; we have been given power and authority over our thoughts, deeds, and actions. Choose wisely!
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Heavenly Father, the choice is ours to make: we either choose to believe You gave us life in order to be miserable, or because You love us. You have called Heaven and earth as witnesses of what You set before us, and then asked us to make a decision on how we would respond. We need to get it into our hearts how much You love us and how much You want us to succeed.

The choice is ours!
