Best Promise Ever! :John 16:33

Day 26/30

"I've told all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace.  In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties.  But take heart!  I've conquered the world." -John 16:33(Message)

When Jesus says that He has conquered the world, He's talking about sin, death, oppression, loneliness, and selfishness.  He's not talking about a world where there will be no difficulties and conflict.  Jesus says we will have those things, but when we trust Him we will be unshakable, assured and deeply at peace.

More than a few times, people have said to me, "It seems like nothing really phases you, like you don't have a worry in the world."  Like everyone else, I certainly have my share of challenges and difficult days, but trusting Jesus is more than words for me.  Trusting Jesus is a lifestyle choice.  Forget what you've heard, living a lifestyle that trusts in Jesus instead of self or society, is the REAL alternate lifestyle!


Are you down right now?  What difficulties are the in your path through this world with no god?  Are you trusting Jesus or yourself?  May you become unshakable and be deeply at peace.
