Verse #8:

John 16:33

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

Through our trials and tribulations, never fear! God has “overcome the world”.





Strength: something we’ll need everyday in our lives as Christians. And I’m not talking about physical strength—though we might need that too. I’m talking about spiritual strength. How strong are you in God?

Everyday we will face trials for God. Some will shy away from the very thought of being a Christian because of this. True, there are times when we might need to sacrifice a pleasure or comfort for God, but in return, we’ll have eternal life and a God who always cares about us.

Like I said, many people think that being a Christian makes life very hard. Although it is, God will provide strength. If this is confusing, let me put it this way:

When you become a Christian, God becomes your Father and you are his child. Before you became a Christian, Satan was satisfied that you were his child, and didn’t bother you, at least for the time being. However, when you accepted Christ, he was furious. He would know pester you and bring trials upon you in order to bring you back to his side. Through all of this, though, God, your Father, is there, and he’s protecting you and helping you get past every single trial.

So, although there will be hard times if you are a Christian, it’s not like there wouldn’t be any trials if you weren’t. But as a Christian, you have God on your side; he’ll always be there to help you when you don’t think you can go any farther.

I think that’s worth being strong for.
