Verse: “I have told you all this so that you can have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, for I have overcome the world.”
Insight: One thing that I love about Jesus is that He does not sugarcoat hard truths. Our world is full of sorrow and hardship. Even for those who follow Christ. But, our souls can rest in the wonderful truth that Jesus has overcome every single one. Praise Jesus!
Prayer: Jesus, today we rejoice in the promise that you have overcome all of our trials and sorrows! Help us to remember this when worry, stress, and sadness seem to be overwhelming. Thank you that we can be marked by joy even in our suffering because of your victory. Amen.
