Inward peace comes from trusting the Lord. Communicating daily with Jesus is the key to overcoming this world. The person in a relationship with Jesus will not operate as the world operates. He or she will have rest in their soul. Jesus Christ gives the kind consolation that cannot be found in this world. He is the giver of perfect peace (Eph.2:14).
This world is not trouble free and Jesus reminds us about this in John 16:33. Once you choose to worship and follow Jesus you will attract opposition:
2 Tim 3:12
Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. Be of good cheer, Halleluya!!! You have overcome the world. Do not be afraid, the Lord has already given you the victory. The battle has been won.
Jesus Christ is the source of peace to the believer (Micah 5:5). He is the one to run to in times of trouble. The sign of God’s presence is peace in the heart and peace on ones lips. A person filled with peace will be able to sow words of peace to others in their time of need.
“I create the fruit of the lips:
Peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near,”
Says the LORD,
“And I will heal him.” – Isaiah 57:19
In-spite of whatever you are going through, be REST – ASSURED that you are on the winning side. Between Earth and Heaven is a distance. The believer does not make this journey on their own. Walk in the peace of God. The Holy Spirit will give you the power, endurance and courage to face whatever challenges may come your way.
Jesus Christ has overcome the world.
Jesus Christ is a mighty warrior, satan is under His feet. He has rescued His children from the grip of satan and his power. Every believer is free in Christ. He has given them the authority to go forth and preach the gospel. He has given every believer dominion:
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation – Mark 16:15
Go forward today in the power, might and zeal of the Lord. Let nothing hinder or stop you. Trust in God. Obey the commission He has given you. The time is short. Be confident in God’s power. With God all things are possible! (Matthew 19:26). You have overcome the world!
