Give Up Worry for Good Week 5, Day 1

“I have said this to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) 

Like it or not, Jesus always tells it like it is. His words here provide a great example. In this life we will have problems, BUT… 

Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good… 

The key to understanding this message can be found in the last five words. Bad things will happen in the world. People will suffer and die. And yet, there is a bigger picture that must be grasped if we are ever to find peace. Our time on earth is temporary and is only a small part of our life. It will come to an end in a relatively short period of time. We were created for so much more than simply living in this world. When Jesus died on the Cross and rose from the dead, he opened the gates of heaven and made the next phase of our life possible.

This week, we’ll focus on the fact that we will have problems in this life. Surrendering your life to Jesus will not necessarily make them go away. What it will do, however, is give you the strength and composure you need to deal with them. A relationship with Jesus will also give you peace, even in midst of the most serious storm.
