Take heart, because I have overcome the world.
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.”
Glory, praises and honor be to the awesome eternal Living God.
Beloved brethren, may the peace of Christ rule your hearts. During these hard times, we got to see how the fear has gripped the mankind in its fold. And equally there has been the rise of people turning to God. Although, we are not going to discuss the good or bad of the current situation or attribute the crisis to God’s discipline or the devil’s raid over the humanity. We are here to say that we have the Almighty God by our side.
Peace of God
As the Lord says in the subject verse, we have the peace of our Lord jesus Christ. Our Lord himself said that we may have many trials and sorrows in this world. But, those who put their trust and faith in the Lord, would never succumb to the fear. However, in all situations and circumstances they go on their knees and seek God’s intervention and deliverance. As the following verses from the Bible says, the peace of God guards their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
6. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:6-7 NIV
Finally brethren, our Lord overcame this world. And now we have His Holy Spirit in us, which means there is no place for the spirit of fear. Therefore, take heart for our trust is in the Lord our God, who will ever remain our shield, strength and confidence. Amen.
