“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have perfect peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage, be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” (John 16:33, AMP).
In our modern world, it is very easy to get stressed out. We can all become overloaded with deadlines, bills, and these nagging things that we know we should be getting to. We can become fatigued with what feels like a constant barrage of existence.
Here is the good news: We can have perfect peace!
Not only can we acquire it, but we are commanded to be happy! Be of good cheer today and operate from the knowledge that whatever you are facing, Christ has already conquered it.
