“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” 

   John 16:33

Our personal problems can seem overwhelming at times. National and international problems may cause us to shake our heads and wonder “what the world is coming to.” But Jesus interrupts our conflicted worries and gets straight to the point. In the world, we’re going to have tribulation, which means “pressure, affliction, oppression, and distress.” Then, He says the most amazing thing. He’s bigger than the world. He’s OVERCOME it. And that is why He invites us to take His hand and take His peace. 

Lord Jesus Christ, You are the OVERCOMER. I praise You for the peace You give me when I look heavenward and trust You.
