“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
Everyone faces trials, even believers in Christ. In fact, there’s a very real price to pay when we live sold-out for Jesus.
But the great thing is as followers of Christ, we really can have joy even in the midst of life’s stress and trials!
It’s important to remember that in the midst of life’s trials, God continues to pour blessings out on those who believe and trust in Him. 1 Peter 4:19 says, “Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.”
Nothing can ultimately harm you as a child of God if you are fearless and faithful to Him!
Today, I want to challenge you. The next time you face a trial in your life, remember that Christ went through trials just like you…and came out victorious! As a follower of Christ, you can have the same victory that Jesus did.
NOTHING CAN ULTIMATELY HARM YOU AS A CHILD OF GOD.
