Almost everyday of my life, I talk with people who are facing some of the hardest and most difficult times they have ever had to face. The hard knocks of life have been rough and left them wondering is life really worth living? The answer to that question is YES!
This is what Jesus said on the issue: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Life is going to be tough and in this world we are going to have tribulation, but He has overcome this world and if we have Him in us, then the same power that allowed Him to overcome this world flows into and through our lives.
The key is this: As we live in this world, we need to make sure that we are living in Him, because in Him, we have peace. We live in Him by letting His words live in and through us. We let His Words live in and through us by reading, thinking and obeying His teachings, which are found in the Bible.
It really is not nearly as complicated as most of us try to make it! Read/obey His Word and you will live in Him. Live in Him as you live in this world and you will have His peace and power flowing into and through your life. His peace and power gives you overcoming power, which allows you to live the victorious and glorious life of grace.
Get it and give it – you will be glad you did!
