This Ain't Over
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
Today, with all that's happening in our world and in our personal lives, it would be easy to embrace unrest and suspicion. What results is erratic behavior, compromised character, and deepened frustration that tests everything about our faith in God. Jesus, however, assured us that this life comes with tribulation, not freedom from it. Tribulation is guaranteed—he specifically declared you "will have" it.
The hope is this. In him we have peace! So we should live as we have obtained peace in the tribulation since he gave us peace when he overcame the world!
DO THIS: Be peace. Live at peace. Share peace in a world that needs it.
PRAY THIS: God, I praise you today for giving me peace. I accept it and will share it. Thank you for overcoming this world of tribulation. We need you now more than ever.
