“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
John 16:33 NIV
With all that is occurring in this world right now, we need some comfort. We need something to hold firm to.
As believers, we are assured of the Lord’s sovereignty and His understanding of our troubles. We must cling to this assurance right now.
We are also challenged to:
- Remember His faithfulness
- Be guided by His love and compassion
- Acknowledge these are momentary troubles
- Live each day in radical gratitude
- Lean into His perfect peace
- Stand on His promises
- Find strength in His overcoming!
As we commit to following guidelines of physical distancing and working from home as much as possible, commit also to growing and finding peace in Him during this season of our faith journeys.
“I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”
John 16:33 MSG
