When Your Troubles Overwhelm You
"In this world you will have troubles. But take heart! I have overcome the world." ~ John 16:33
When troubles come your way, you often seem surprised. You may think, "How could this happen? Why did it happen to me? What did I do wrong?" And yet, as I told My disciples the night of My arrest, as long as you remain in this world, you will have trouble. It's as much a part of your life as the air you breathe and the water you drink. But child, you have access to comfort, confidence, peace, and joy that the rest of the world does not have. You have Me, and I have overcome the world. Your troubles will never take Me by surprise, and they will never defeat Me or divert My eternal purposes for you. Even through your greatest trials, I will prevail. I will demonstrate My love, mercy, grace, and power to you and through you. Even when Satan is celebrating what seems to be a victory against you, I will turn his seeming victory into a true victory for My Father and His Kingdom. Nothing can separate you from My love and purpose. Hear My voice and follow Me.
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled ad do not be afraid." ~ John 14:27
