John 16:33

66

John 16:33- “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.”

The Lord promises to give us His peace no matter what season we may find ourselves in life. Jesus says in John 14:27; “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” Jesus is the Prince of Peace. His peace cannot be compared to anything else here on earth. It is not a feeling in the present moment, but rather, it is a knowing a deep trust in a God who knows, a God who sees and a God who cares.
Being a Christian doesn’t isolate you from the fact that you will not encounter various trials or tribulations in this world. On the contrary, Jesus specifically says in his word, that you will have trouble, but to take heart when various trials come, by knowing and trusting that God himself will give you His Peace in the midst of that trouble.
