Many days, there is a whole lot of worrying going on. There are many difficulties. Jesus told us there would be.
Fear can cripple. How many times does God come to us and say, “Fear not”? That is one of His great themes.
Jesus knows that this world is going to present challenges to us. We will experience difficulties.
God’s goal for us is the we trust in Him. He is in control. He didn’t bring us this far to leave us now.
Here is the good news. Jesus has overcome everything. He is seated at the right hand of the Father. All is well. It is finished.
Jesus answered them, “Do you finally believe? In fact, you’re about to make a run for it—saving your own skins and abandoning me. But I’m not abandoned. The Father is with me. 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.” John 16:33 The Message (MSG)
