In times of uncertainty
By Todd Barrier
In times of uncertainty I like to remember John 16:33:
“These things I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world.”
We can get five really good thoughts to reassure us from this verse:
- This is Jesus’ direct reassurance for us, from Him!
- In Jesus we find our comfort – not in the news, statistics or worldly things.
- Bad things happen, but …
- We can still find peace and joy even with that knowledge because …
- Jesus died for us so that we have eternity to look forward to. Bad things happen here, but we are working for things above!
