"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 NKJV
Wars. Diseases. Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Famine. Our world experiences various kinds of trials and tribulations. If you have lived any amount of time, you have experienced some form of tribulation.
The words of Jesus assure us that everyone will face tribulation, as long as we are in this world. There is no getting out of it. There are no free passes, or "Get out of jail free cards."
Even as I am writing this, our world is gripped by the Covid-19 pandemic. Hundreds of thousands of people have fallen ill or died due to this horrible virus. Communities have been shut down as governments try to contain the spread of the virus. Feelings of uncertainty, panic, and dread continue to permeate our society.
I know this isn't what you wanted to hear, but there is good news in the midst of the bad. Jesus said we should be of good cheer because He has overcome the world.
Through His death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus overcame the tribulations of the world--for us! In Him we can have peace in the midst of calamity. He is our only source of hope.
