the bible says “In this world you will have trouble,” so I’m never surprised when trouble comes. life happens, circumstances get burdensome, hearts break, situations become down right hard and darkness can inevitably ensue. but it doesn’t have to. let’s not forget the second part of the verse, “I have overcome the world.” Jesus has already won, therefore we can already win!
when darkness tries to rear it’s ugly head remember, Jesus IS light! and where there is even a small glimmer of light, darkness disperses! let Him in!
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
“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.”
