A Reminder For You Today

 Friday, March 5, 2021

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.   John 16:33

A Reminder For You Today
To take heart means to have courage or be encouraged. Jesus spoke these words so we would be emboldened and have the strengthened for all the things in this world that we would face. He knew we would need the reminder that He has already overcome the world.

He has overcome financial problems.

He has overcome family issues.

He has overcome divorce.

He has overcome job loss.

He has overcome physical illness.

He has overcome emotional illness.

He has overcome mental illness.

He has overcome darkness.

He has overcome addiction.

He has overcome fear.

He has overcome sin.

He has overcome giants.

He has overcome anxiety.

He has overcome insecurity.

He has overcome sorrow.

He has overcome death.

And so much more.

What is it that you need Him to overcome in your life? What has He already overcome? We are all overcomers through Him, never in our own power. Nothing we face worries God in the least, and He doesn’t want it to worry us either. He wants us to trust His promise that He has overcome. We can face anything with the certainty that He has already been there and knows all of it already. Because we are His children, we have this promise that we can hold onto.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:35-39
