33I have told you this so that you will have peace by being united to me. The world will make you suffer. But be brave! I have defeated the world!”
Question: What’s a situation in your life that troubles you—one that creates an obvious need for the peace of God?
How does Jesus’ work on the cross affect this situation?
Prayer: Overcomer God, I thank you for fighting for me, for not giving up on me, even when opposition has shifted my focus away from you. Fill me with your peace during times of trouble, and lift my eyes to you. Amen.
