This morning…I was seeking God, as to what He would have me share with you today and He led me to a Bible verse in John 16:33 and we read… “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
I wonder how many times we find ourselves so deeply focused on what is taking place at the moment; that we completely bypass the thought that Jesus has already won the battles that can seem so fierce to us.
If we were to look intensely into the moments that are attempting to bring us low, I would think that we would not be able to see the hope we truly have in Jesus…but on the other hand…if we could just take a few moments and remind ourselves that these battles that have entered our lives, have already been won at the cross; then I would also think that we would find it easier to wait on God and expect His best to shine through the darkened moments we face.
You know…Jesus never said that life would be easy…and why…because we live in a godless world; but at the same time, Jesus is reminding us in John 16:33; that we can live with hope and a peace that can help us through these difficult times, just by knowing that He has already overcome everything in this world. Yes…we will go through times of affliction…and yes, it may not always end when we would like it to end; but the hope we can live with each day; is that there has to be an end to what we’re experiencing…and why…because Jesus already overcame it all in advance at the cross…Amen!
Have a very blessed day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
