"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world" (John 16:33 NIV)
We see this everyday when we spend money to make purchases. On the back of the money, it says "In God We Trust", but do we really trust God. When trouble arises, many people entire demeanor changes. They will stop praising God, stop coming to church, stop attending Bible Study/Prayer Service, and some people will even stop communicating with family.
The scripture clearly tells us that we will have trouble, but it also tells us that Jesus has overcome the world. After Jesus overcame the world, he told us that in the midst of our trials he will give us peace.
When we are having financial troubles, we cannot say we trust God to resolve the problem, but we continue to worry about the financial woes. When we are having family problems, we cannot say we trust God to mend the family, but we talk about our family members behind their backs.
In the middle of your hardships, God is still there. During our hardships, we must take our eyes off the problem at hand and look at what God is trying to minister to us. "In God We Trust"! God remind me of your promises when trouble arises.
Please forgive me when I become despondent because of my troubles and hardships. Help me to keep my eyes on you. Jesus you overcame the world when you took the cross for us and we thank you. Keep my mind in perfect peace.
In the marvelous name of Jesus,
