Do the things of this world bring you down? The daily news can be very depressing and down right scary sometimes. Shootings, debates about gun control, political conflicts, suicides, homocides, abuse of all kinds, …these are just a few of the things we deal with on a daily basis. Satan is alive and well on this earth.
But God has given us hope! Jesus said in John 16:33b, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Through faith in Jesus we can overcome all the trials of this life. Through the power of Jesus name we can rebuke evil and cause Satan to flee! Through trust in Jesus we can be strengthened to deal with the trials that come our way and through belief in Jesus salvation can be ours. He gives us hope of a future full of joy and peace and through prayer He gives us an avenue to bring our burdens and requests before the Father who listens and acts in love toward us.
Yes, Jesus has overcome this world and He will help us be overcomers too! Now that is great news!
