John 16:33 NLT I have told you all this so that you may have peace in Me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.
Jesus, told these words to His disciples to take courage. In spite of the inevitable struggles they would face, they would not be alone. Jesus does not abandon us in our struggles either. If we remember that ultimate victory has already been won, we can claim the peace of Christ in the most troublesome times.
He holds us by our right hand – He the Lord our God. For we can do everything through Christ, who gives us strength.
