But Take Heart!

John 16:33 – “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.” (NIV 1978)

My Musings – We have to live in this world, so we will (not may) have trouble. But as believers, we are also in Christ so we can have peace. Why is this possible? Because Christ has overcome the world and if we are in Him we are overcomers too.

My Advice – Do not be surprised when problems arise. Jesus warns that they will come. But He also promises that you can have peace despite the troubles. If you do not have peace it is either because you are out of fellowship with Him or you are not trusting Him enough. Take care of these, and you will get the peace.
