Saturate yourself in the word of God.
I have told 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.
Jesus is addressing the disciples about how he must return to His Father in Heaven. His hope for them is that they have peace knowing that He is not abandoning them. Jesus was returning to the Father to allow the Holy Spirit to come upon the disciples at Pentecost. Trouble came to many of the disciples after that, and most were persecuted and killed because of their faith in Him. Like the disciples, trouble will come our way. Because Christ has overcome the world, we do not have to fear those troubles. We have an inheritance in Christ Jesus who reigns victorious forever!
