I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
When Christ ascended to the right hand of God, He didn’t leave us alone. The Holy Spirit indwells in believers and comforts us. He reminds us of this promise from Christ: you will have tribulation, but I have overcome the world. And He promised us peace. We can rest in that peace and carry hope with us through our days.
This world makes us weary, causes us to long for heaven. Jesus knew that longing and promised us fulfillment through Him.
God, we know we will face tribulation, but we have hope because Your Son has overcome the world!
