”I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
This verse tells me everything I need. Jesus brings us peace. Knowing Jesus has overcome this world gives us the strength to endure hardship, and strength to fight the forces of evil we experience. Jesus wanted us to be strong. He taught his disciples so they could bring others to Him. The world pulls us away from God, but He is still with us, giving us strength to pull away from the world.
Father God, I am so thankful for the strength you provide. I need to use it more frequently, daily and minute by minute. Help me, Lord. Amen
