Jesus announced that “in the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). And He went on to urge His followers — including you — not to worry, because He will be with you. This fact, truth, and promise, all rolled into one, should bolster your courage.
Whether a tragedy or disaster or shock strikes during your day, and you feel like your life is reeling, you are never alone. In spite of the struggles you will experience, Jesus is always with you and will never abandon you. The Lord tells us through His word, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified…for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
Your precious, omnipresent Savior will go with you all the way through each trial…and all the way through life. The most effective and powerful way you can reflect the heart of Jesus is to entrust yourself into His capable hands. Let His confidence infuse you with the courage to face life boldly as you live in and for Jesus Christ. Because your ultimate victory has already been won by Christ, you can live in courage as you trust Him even in the worst of times.
