“I have told you these things so that in Me you may have perfect peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation, trials, distress and frustration; but be of good cheer (take courage, be confident, certain and undaunted)! For I have overcome the world. I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.” John 16:33 Amplified
Jesus said this to His disciples just before He was arrested and crucified. He knew what was just ahead of Him yet He cared for us. We must always keep a heavenly perspective on our earthly situation, we are not of this world. No matter what lies ahead of us He is there with us and He has overcome it.
Take courage, be confident, certain and undaunted – Be of Good Cheer.
