Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 11/14/10

This week’s scripture is from John:

“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 world.”     (John 16:33)

Though we can sometimes wonder why God allows our lives to be marked by trouble, there is a strange comfort in Jesus’ words assuring us that we will have trouble in this world, for it reminds us that trouble comes from this fallen world and not our Lord, for in Him, and Him alone, we can find peace from the trials and tribulations of this life. Jesus has overcome the world!  If we are in Him and He is in us, then we too can overcome the world through Him. In Him we have life and victory, and peace. What a great blessing!

May the words of our Lord and Savior bless and comfort you.
