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)
In this World today there are times when we may feel overwhelmed by what is going on all around us. After all with wars and terrorist’s threats, and even children killing other children, it can make one wonder what is happening to this World today.
If all of these events cause you to feel overwhelmed, and the tribulation of this World is weighing heavily on your mind, remember that God is in control and that these events are unfolding as prophesied. Also remember that our Savior Jesus Christ said, “LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED; FOR YOU BELIEVE IN GOD, BELIEVE ALSO IN ME.” (JOHN 14:1) For when we put all of our trust in Jesus’ hands, we will find peace for; HE HIMSELF IS OUR PEACE. EPHESIANS 2:14)
FINALLY, BRETHREN, WHATEVER THINGS ARE TRUE, WHAT EVER THINGS ARE NOBLE, WHATEVER THINGS ARE JUST, WHATEVER THINGS ARE PURE, WHATEVER THINGS ARE LOVELY, WHATEVER THINGS ARE OF GOOD REPORT, IF THERE IS ANY VIRTUE AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING PRAISEWORTHY — MEDITATE ON THESE THINGS. (PHILIPPIANS 4:8) instead of the troubles of this World.
After all it is then that; THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH SURPASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING, WILL GUARD YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS. (PHILIPPIANS 4:7) and you will know true peace as you have never known it before. Amen,
May; THE GRACE OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THE LOVE OF GOD, AND THE COMMUNION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT BE WITH YOU. Amen.
