"I have told you these things so that in Me you may have perfect peace and confidence.
In the world you have tribulation
and trials and distress and frustrations;
be of good cheer - take courage,
be confident, certain and undaunted - for I have overcome the world.
I have deprived it of power to harm,
I have conquered it [for you].
(John 16:33 Amplified).
The Lord Jesus gives you this comforting truth:
In Me you may have perfect peace and confidence.
This truth is your personal victory
for the trials that lie ahead.
rely upon them!
The ways of the world are powerful, but not all
Only God's ways are all-powerful!
Whatever battles you have today, be comforted in the truth that Christ Jesus has already conquered those battles with all their influence and power.
Take courage. There is no longer any power remaining, but what the Lord Jesus Christ permits.
No matter the fierceness of your trials, be of good cheer.
Let your hope be in Him who has already disarmed wickedness and has established
victory over evil in every way
