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.
~ John 16:33 ~
God is never distant from us. Yet, we may feel distant from God. Scripture reminds us to constantly seek after God. Desire to be in his presence and experience his grace. He touches our hearts where our fears are calmed and our confidence is restored.
How many times have you lived under clouds of uncertainty? How many times have you allowed the cares of this world to bring disappointment into your heart? How often have you found yourself doubting? Christ has overcome the world and brings us peace of mind, wisdom, strength, love, and grace.
In this world, we will have trouble. All the more reason to pursue God daily. We place our trust and faith in God to restore unto us the confidence we need to navigate this troubled world.
Today’s Prayer and Meditation
Father in heaven, guide me and comfort me in times of distress and trouble so that I know my safety is with you. I trust in your promises and through my obedience, I gain confidence and purpose as I am empowered to face those challenges I am called to endure and face. As Christ has overcome this world, through Him, I too shall endure and overcome.
