“In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).”

COMPLETE IN CHRIST MOMENT: “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 KJV).  When I was younger, I used to think that life was unfair, and I wondered how God could expect me to rejoice (Philippians 4:4). I was hurt, bitter and angry with God back then; but the bottom line against bitterness is this: Jesus is the One who told us the truth. He old us clearly that there would be troubles in life! If we look around, we can see unfair things happening to people all over the world. Mudslides, avalanches, child abuse and on and on. All Jesus really promised us was victory over the pain (John 16:33), comfort during the storms(John 14:18), peace without measure (John 14:27) and fellowship with Him through it all (Hebrews 13:5) and eternal life with Him forever (John 3:16). Just saying. That’s a good deal. Don’t let bitterness stay in your heart. Just saying. Trouble was going to come anyway. At least with Jesus you have a way out. Trust Him. He will bring you through.  Be encouraged!
