There are many blessings that God wants to give us. One of the most cherished of those blessings is peace. God knows that our lives are filled with troubles and disappointments. God knows we have obstacles that hinder us and rough spots on our journey. But God also proclaims that we can have peace that is greater than all our understanding.
God tells us the obvious, “In this world you will have trouble.”
That part, we know all too well. But God doesn’t stop there. God also says, “Take heart! I have overcome the world.”
That’s good news for us. It’s news we need to hear, especially if we are suffering trials in our lives. Thanks to God for letting us know!
“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
