Jesus says, “I tell 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.”
Satan, our adversary, is hurled down to earth where he roams about looking for anyone he may devour. Here in this world, we have troubles — as many as the next person. We also have peace. We have peace — more than the next person — because Jesus has overcome the world and our adversary.
“You [O Lord] keep in perfect peace [us] whose minds [are] steadfast, because [we] trust in You.” (Isaiah 26:3)
“The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guards [our] hearts and [our] minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7)
Enter God’s rest; throw off the burdens you carry. Pick up your cross; discover that its weight is light for Christ has already carried it to Calvary. Lift your hearts to God; and rejoice. Jesus has overcome the world.
