God never promised that we would live in a trouble-free world. As a matter of fact, Jesus told us that in this world there would be tribulation, distress, and suffering. But He also told us that in Him we would have perfect peace because He has overcome the world and the problems in it.

Christ’s victory is not a matter of uncertainty during testing times. He has won the victory over whatever we face in life. Only through His victory can we overcome the uncertainties of this world. Even when facing our own tests and challenges, we can take courage knowing that Christ has already given us the victory.

“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.” – John 16:33
