Remember: that Christ overcame the whole world and all its sin for you.
"In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world." — John 16:33, spoken by Jesus Christ.
You're going to face challenges. Some small. Some large. Some temporary. Some perpetual. Some today. Some tomorrow. But this should not surprise us. The operative word in Jesus' statement above is "will." You will have tribulation. Jesus used this word deliberately. So since challenges are expected, maybe it's not the challenges that are the real challenge. Perhaps the challenge is having a better mindset as we encounter the challenge itself. But, Jesus continues, "take heart," he says. He reminds us that challenges should not take a man to that place of despair where the heart feels defeated. And why? Well, because we face the challenge with the knowledge of ultimate victory—"I (Jesus) have overcome the world."
Today, as you experience the challenge, or challenges, you are facing, and that we are facing together in this world, see them the way that God sees them. Your challenges, problems, and difficulties do not define you, but your response to them matters. Live today knowing that Christ is victorious over them all.
