Today’s reading John 14-16
John 16:33 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.
Through His Word we have peace in Him. There is no way to escape tribulation in this world but we can know that in Christ we have victory and peace.
You would almost think that many Christians think that they things should go well in this world and God should protect us. However in this verse we find out that He told us that we would have troubles and tribulations.
Our joy doesn’t come from everything working out but from His Word and from being in Him! We know that He has over come the world and that is our joy.
Remember that Jesus is the answer in a troubled world. He doesn’t get you out of it but gives you peace in the middle of the storm!
