John 16:33

Matthew 9:2

Are you having a hard time? Are things not going your way? Do you feel bombarded by the things of the world?

Don’t be discouraged. Don’t feel singled out. Don’t feel like you’re all alone.

Jesus said we’re to expect tribulations. He even goes on to say that during these tribulations we can still be of good cheer.

Why is it that we can be of good cheer when our world seems to be crashing in on us?

Because we’ve been forgiven. And our “forgiver” has overcome the world.
