(You Can Enjoy Peace In Times Of Adversity!)
TO THE BIBLE
John 16:33 MSG
“I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”
Jesus told His disciples in Luke 21:25-26 that in the last days, there’ll be confusion in the nations of the world and men’s hearts would fail them because of fear. Yes, these are the last days but it’s important that as a Christian, you refuse to fear. Rather, lay hold of God’s Word, which is the only antidote to fear and insecurity.
The Lord knew we would encounter difficult and trying times in the world, but He confirmed that as we remain in Him, we would live a life of peace, even in times of crises. Check out our theme verse in the Classic Amplified Version: “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” Let these words of the Master re-echo in your heart and create the mindset of the overcomer in you.
God’s Word gives us the assurance that we’re not alone, and that irrespective of the fiendish and dastardly manipulations of the enemy, our victory is a settled fact! As a Christian, you dwell in the secret place of the Most High, and abide under the shadow of the Almighty. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, yet no harm or evil whatsoever will touch you! Believe this truth and make it your consciousness.
Refuse to fear, because God has already made you an overcomer (1 John 4:4). He has made His power available to you and lifted you over principalities and powers. Your faith in Christ is the victory that overcomes the world (1 John 5:4).
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
1 John 5:4
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
My life is founded on Christ, my Saviour, and in Him I dwell in safety and security. And by the power in the Name of Jesus, I come against the activities of wickedness in this country, affirming that their plans to wreak havoc and unleash terror in the land are vanquished and overturned. Amen.
