John 16:33 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

John 16:33

“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.”


Jesus is not just talking to the disciples but to you and I as well!! This verse tells me so many things and has such a great promise! It tells me that to find peace, I have to find Jesus! Our peace isn’t found anywhere else besides the arms of our Savior!!


The verses before this talk about how tough it’s going to be and that there will be trouble! It is not going to be easy all the time, BUT never give up! Jesus has overcome everything we will ever face! He faced this world on the world’s terms, and He won! Not only did He beat the world, but He won our salvation in Him!!


This verse means so much to me when I’m down or feeling overwhelmed because it reminds me that He already came and conquered, and I am His!! Jesus says this before He even goes to the Cross. He calls His shot and tells us plainly that He has already won!!! Tough and difficult times are going to be a part of this life, but we don’t have to face them alone! We have the Lion of Judah on our side!!! 


Notice the contrast here:


World = Trouble 

Jesus = Peace!!!


Which side do you want to be on?


I love you all! God bless! Glory to God and our Risen King!!!!!
