Be of Good Cheer

John 16:33
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

Troubles or storms of life come to all. Jesus did not tell us this so that we would be troubled by them. He has already overcome the world’s troubles you will face. Jesus taught us that if you come to Him and hear what He says, but do not do what He says, you will be like a man who built a house on sand. Storms would come and when they do the house would fall.

But if you come to Him and you hear and do what He has said, you will be like a man who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock. When the storms come the house would not only stand, it would not be shaken. In this fallen world you will face trouble or storms of life. But the person who has come to Jesus and will listen to what He has to say and is a doer of the Word, and not just a hearer only, they have a strong foundation upon which they stand.

Those who are doers of the Word are those who walk by faith and not by sight. Those who are doers of the Word do not focus on the storms, they keep their focus on God. Instead of talking about their storms, they talk about their God. They magnify their God and command their storm to cease. In the midst of trying times keep your eyes on God. Bodily confess what His Word says, for Jesus has overcome the world for you!
