God is the Answer

Posted on: 7-15-112013

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

All of us face difficulties, heartache, and situations that are beyond our ability to handle on our own.  No matter what our race, religion, social status, place of employment, amount of money in our bank account, etc. we are all going to encounter tribulation! It is inevitable…Christ was very clear about this in the verse above.  He said, “you WILL have tribulation”, not “you MIGHT have tribulation.”  At first glance this may seem very discouraging, but this verse actually is full of promise.  It’s found in the last phrase, “I have overcome the world.” If we are in Christ, we have the very same power which He has.  If He has overcome the world, then we can overcome the world through Him.  We do not have to despair…victory is ours for the taking.  It may not come in the way, shape, or form we thought it would, but it is a sure thing.  We can trust God to stand by us every step of the way as we walk the road of suffering and to pick us up and carry us when we can’t go on any longer.  We can be assured that He will never leave us or forsake us.  We can count on Him to provide us with exactly what we need exactly when we need it.  The only thing more certain in our lives than tribulation is the God who overcomes tribulation.  He will not fail us.  He will not let us down.  He will not let us go.  He is the God of the impossible and He will work in our lives in ways that are beyond our wildest imaginations if only we allow Him to.  Whatever you are facing today, God is the answer.
