Life will bring us trouble, but we can take heart.

Jesus told us that in this world, we will have trouble, but that we can take heart, because He has overcome the world (John 16:33). How easily I get disheartened by the troubles in my life! I often forget that this life by definition is imperfect, because He has not yet come again. The scripture says that the whole is earth is groaning and yearning because of its fallen state. We waiting for His glory to be fully revealed. In the meantime, we must remember that in Jesus we can have peace.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”

Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful! What a beautiful, glorious command from our God.
