John 16:33 (KJV) 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.
Despite God’s promises, despite Christ’s love, and despite our countless blessings, our propensity as human beings can still lose hope from time to time. When we do, we need the encouragement of Godly relationships, the life-changing power of prayer, and the healing truth of God’s Holy Word.
It was Jesus who promised, “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” (John 16:33 KJV). This world can be a place of trials and tribulations, but as believers, we are secure. God has promised us peace, joy, and eternal life. And, of course, God always keeps His promises.
Point to ponder- If you’re experiencing hard times, you’ll be wise to start spending more time with God. And if you do your part, God will do His part. Keeping holding onto hope and never be afraid to ask for a miracle.
