FOCAL TEXT: John 16 vs 33►► “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”~| NKJV |______________________________________
BLISSFUL greetings, Cherished one. In the first part of our focal text, Jesus assured us that He words inspire perfect peace. He continues and unveils that we will have tribulation in this world. Tribulation involves temptations, trials, frustrations, pressure, oppression and distress. In other words, the world will throw all these against you in all directions. However, since you have perfect peace in Me, be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
The world involves its systems, values, principles and beliefs that oppose the Christ and believers. The Prince of peace assures you to be of good cheer. This means take courage, be confident, certain and undaunted. Beloved, you have perfect peace in Christ, be of good cheer even in the midst of tribulations. Be confident in the words of Christ despite the challenges you may face. Another reason you should be of good cheer is that Jesus has overcome the world.
In other words, He has deprived the world of its power to harm you and has conquered it for you. He overcame the world when He shed His blood as a propitiation for our sins (1 John 2:1-2). He conquered the world when He resurrected from the dead. He conquered Satan, sin, death and hades. The good news is He did all for you. His victory is your victory. You are not a victim of this world, you are a victor through Christ. Live with the victory mindset against the world systems by faith. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
My Master Jesus has overcome the world for me. Therefore, I am an overcomer. I am of good cheer, confident and undaunted in Him despite the tribulations of this world. Nothing can take this victory away from me. I reign together with Christ in sweet victories. Hallelujah!
Pray and thank God for the sweet victory against this world.
You are not safe until you are saved. Believe in Jesus Christ Now, if you haven’t.
