John 16:33 These Things I Have Spoken Unto You, That In Me Ye Might Have Peace. In The World Ye Shall Have Tribulation: But Be Of Good Cheer; I Have Overcome The World.
Yes, we have tribulation. We have the tribulation of our pain, from whatever source. However, we have Jesus who came into the world to take us to a place where pain and suffering are no more. We have a Master who has overcome the pain and suffering we feel. We have a Master who destroyed for all time the grip of sin and pain if we accept Him into our life. Certainly, our pain will continue but only for a little while. So even in our pain, we can be of good cheer for the dawn of our new day is almost here. We must not forget we have an eternity waiting. Because we hurt, we do not see the Master's hand reaching down to pick us up to a new place of unlimited joy and peace. However, even when we do not see Him, He is still there reaching down, still loving us, still calling us home.
