“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
– John 16:33
How lovingly reassuring Jesus is. How well He knows us and our tendency to become anxious at the least problem! With the all-conquering power of Christ, we too can overcome all our troubles. Jesus encourages us and gives us that special joy and peace that only a fully entrusting faith in Him can bring.
He endured and overcame so much, and through Him, with Him, and in Him we are able to do the same!
My Lord Jesus,
through You, with You, and in You,
I know I will overcome.
Thank You for Your supreme example,
for Your great love for me
and for Your ultimate sacrifice.
Lord, You give me such hope!
Thank You, Lord, for sending me Your Holy Spirit,
Your Consoler and Counsellor,
through whom I am strengthened,
and shall overcome,
and be purified,
and become more like You!
