Always be FULL of joy.
Jesus accomplished His mission on Earth. He came to us in all humility from Heaven. He walked as a man on this earth for you and I. He also returned to the glory of Heaven, just like He said and promised. Those who have faith in Jesus have peace, not just peace of the conscience and heart, but peace from trials, troubles and tribulations. He has finished what He came to earth to do. It is a work finished and accomplished.
We have overcome.
Every believer has overcome this world and all its temptations and troubles. You have overcome, because Jesus has overcome. He is the Captain of our Salvation and we have overcome under His leadership. His victory is our victory. He has overcome satan and this world (John 16:33). He has overcome a world that hates God and the gospel of grace (2 Tim. 3:12).
We have reason to rejoice in the comfort this divine Truth. You are more than a conqueror with Christ on your side (Romans 8:37). Even the greatest trials are used by God for our benefit and for His purposes. The believer not only overcomes the worst trials, but more than overcomes his enemies and all those things which seem to work against him.
Rejoice and again I say, Rejoice!( Phil 4:4) Always be full of joy in the Lord.
