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)
No one likes trouble in their life, but doesn’t it make it easier to know that the troubles we face have all been overcome?
Would you say your life is one of strife or peace? Why do you think this?
How comforting is it to know that “in this world, you will have trouble”? How comforting is it know that Jesus has overcome that trouble?
How does (or should) your life look more peaceful knowing these words of Jesus?
