"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.” John 16:33
Jesus says, “I have overcome the world..." in a world of tribulation, in a world of trial, in a world of temptation, and sin, and sorrow, and suffering, and evil, and injustice, and so much more.
TAKE HEART! Jesus has come to conquer. Jesus has come to overcome. That’s what He did. Just after saying these words, Jesus went to the cross where He disarmed, the Bible says, the rulers and authorities of this world, He disarmed them. They are not armed anymore. Jesus has taken the sting out of sin and death.
He has overcome. He has risen from the grave. He has been exalted at the right hand of the Father where He has sent His Spirit into us, which He’s promising all throughout John 14, 15 and 16, My Spirit is going to come to you and dwell inside of you.
Don’t miss this. The resurrected, overcoming, King of Kings and Lord of Lords dwells in you. His Spirit resides in you. So, no matter what is going on in your life today, no matter what you are facing, no matter what trial or tribulation that surrounds you right now, do not walk with your head down.
Do not think for a second that you are defeated. You have the overcoming, conquering King living inside of you. He is with you. You belong to Him. Lift up your head. He is your help. He is your strength. He is your joy. He is your peace. Lift up your eyes and look to Him. He is your hope. He is your victory. He is the one who has overcome and who will help you to overcome that sin that you are tempted by, that struggle that you’re walking through, that trial, tribulation you are facing, the victorious One is with you. TAKE HEART!
Much love and care,
