I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.” (John 17:15–18, ESV)

As we start this week, and the midday hour approaches you may know of the challenges that you will face this week.  Some may be large, and others may be small and of course we often pray that God would deliver so that we do not face these challenges.  That is not God’s way.  God wants us to have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with Him.  We relate to God through faith and trust and God will not deny his grace he will deliver us through this week.

Jesus when he prayed this prayer knew what the disciples would face as they took His message to the world and all He asked was that God protect them from the evil one, Satan.  That is all that is needed this week from us is to believe, that God is near, that God will provide all that is needed, and that God can be trusted to bring us through this week.

Be blessed in the knowledge that God loves you not matter how challenging this week may be God is with you.  You are not of this world you are a child of God.
