Welcome to His Encouragement. I have joined with some blogging friends to bring you a new Bible verse every Thursday, and a little discussion of hope and encouragement. We welcome you to join the conversation by adding your daily verse of encouragement as well.
I pray that these Thursday posts become an encouragement to you and help you end your week strong in God’s love and purpose for you. God bless!
Today’s Thursday Encouragement:
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.
In the verse, Jesus is talking to his disciples. He’s telling them of things to come, things they do not understand. He wants them to know that there will be trials and tribulations, but to remember that He has already overcome the world.
This message is in no less important to us today. There have been and will continue to be trials and tribulations. There will be things that we don’t understand. But God doesn’t want us to worry. He wants us to rest in the knowledge that He has already overcome the world. Victory belongs to God!
My friends, I don’t know what trials you may be facing today, or what tribulations lie in your future; but my prayer for you is that whatever may come, that you remember that God has already won! Give your burdens to Him, and rest. He’s already won the battle!
Now it is your turn!
