Trouble comes to all of us. It is not a matter of if trouble will come, but when. Thankfully, we have these promises from Jesus:
“‘I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.’ [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding]” (John 16:33, AMP).
“Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge”] (John 14:27, AMP).
Trouble will come but He is always present and in Him we have peace. May His peace reign in our hearts as we keep our focus on Him this season and each day. Merry Christmas!
