John 16:33

"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."

There seems to be a major misconception about Christians.
People seem to think that we have it all together, and for us, life is perfect. Everything is easy and we are on top. Better than everyone else.


No one ever said life was meant to be easy.
God tells us that we WILL have trials.
We're going to have hard times, times when we think we can't do anything.
Times we feel completely helpless and alone and vulnerable. Weak.

But God tells us that 
He has overcome the world.

So, the thing we need to remember and hold in our hearts, is that He is there. 
He has already won the war.
So although we go through many battles in this life, have peace in Him.

Take heart. Reach out to Him when you are weak.

He has beaten the devil.
He has WON.

Yesterday, today, tomorrow, forever.
