Verse of the Week \\\ 1/16/17

Hey, girls! Here is this week’s verse! Sorry it’s a little late. ūüôā

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. ¬†In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” ~ John 16:33

I love this verse so much. It is so reassuring to know that God is in control. ¬†He holds the world in His hands. ¬†He encourages us not to be afraid. ¬†To be brave when we are facing trials. ¬†Jesus encourages us to always have confidence in His ability to bring us to triumph. There may be times when we feel like everything has gone downhill and we won’t be able to make it up again, but always remember Jesus is there for you. ¬†He won’t let you down. Sometimes we may think to ourselves that we are doing everything right, but God still lets us be tried. ¬†Ultimately, to be closer to him. ¬†I guess you could say, He’s testing us. Testing our faith. ¬†It’s not that He’s bringing the bad, necessarily, it’s just that He is allowing tough situations to happen to make us stronger.

James chapter 1 is a great source. ¬†I definitely encourage you to read it. ¬†It talks about God testing our faith. ¬†It goes along with what I’ve said today.

I hope you enjoyed this!
