These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
John 16:33 (KJV)
There is a continual peace available to us in Christ. Though the world may be filled with challenges, let us remember that Jesus has already overcome the world. And as we abide in Him, we get to partake in that overcoming. We abide in Him through His Word and through His Spirit, knowing that regardless of circumstances and conditions, the the victory has already been won. When we live in this faith-filled state of heart, we will have peace and be filled with joy.
