It’s easy to forget how blessed we are when we are facing difficult circumstances. Sickness, heartbreak, financial strains and relational crises are just a few of the situations that often leave us feeling hopeless and defeated. But during these dark times, we must not forget Jesus’ words,
“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 wrold!” John 16:33.
What a beautiful sense of hope we receive from this verse. God has already claimed Victory over all of our pain; past, present and future. We must learn to praise God in the midst of our trials and trust that He will make something Good from the worst of our days. So, the next time your life feels like a minefield, take heart! The war has already been won.
