“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.”
All of us know that there are going to be tough times, but what we seem to forget is that even in those times of great emotional chaos – God’s peace is always available! John recorded how that Jesus, in the days leading up to His crucifixion, assured His followers that He would always be there for them.
When we lose our sense of godly contentment, it’s not because God has quit offering it, but that we have begun to doubt God’s promises.
There is no doubt that adversity, hardship and troubles will visit a believer’s life but Jesus was very clear that though we will face challenges, He has already overcome each and every issue and offers spiritual peace. He may not change the situation immediately but He will be there with us all the way through speaking peace into our hearts.
Found my Peace,
