Day 16:Life To The Full - Real Peace And Rest

John 16:33

Jesus said to his disciples, “I have said these things to you that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have trouble but take heart. I have overcome the world.”

 



Day 16 – Real peace and rest

Notice the contrasts: between “in me” and “in this world” and between “peace” and “trouble.”

 

The "peace" Jesus speaks of is not worldly comfort, or even happiness. This is the confident "rest" believers experience when they set aside anxiety and trust God to work out his will. Jesus encourages us to come to him when weary and burdened, and he will give us rest.

 

Think on it:

No matter what you are facing today you can take heart because Jesus has overcome the world, and you belong to him. Spend some time in prayer thanking him.
