The Attitude That Overcomes
by Charles Stanley
“In Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Are you living in the continual joy and victory of your personal relationship with Jesus? Are you conscious of His hand in every detail of your life?
Understand, this question doesn’t assume you’re free from challenges. On the contrary, the Father wants you to experience His comfort and assurance even in the midst of your troubles. You do so by being conscious of His presence with you and realizing that He’s using your circumstances to deepen your relationship with Him.
This is possible even when you face the worst adversity, because God promises to deliver You in His way and time (Acts 16:16–34). Whether or not you receive His comfort depends on how deeply you trust His character and how surrendered you are to His will.
Friend, let go and believe Him. In the midst of trials, voice your gratitude that God is with you and will provide a way for you. Surely His joy and victory won’t be far behind (Psalm 126:6).
Lord, sometimes I just don’t feel triumphant, but I am grateful You’re with me every step of the way. Thank You for helping me, amen.
In His presence… overcome your circumstances.
