BE OF GOOD CHEER

 
Devotional Audio: http://j.mp/1N1owwB

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. [KJV]

Temidayo was now tired of this world. Each time he tuned to the news channel, there was another bad news. The level of insecurity in his country now reached heights never seen before. He just heard that another friend of his was kidnapped. 'Would he be the next victim?' he thought as he started becoming more and more despondent daily.

Jesus has forewarned us of the evil and tribulations in this world. One reason I believe He gave us this warning is to prepare us so that we would not be perplexed by the news of the evil we now hear. Remember He also instructed us to ‘be of good cheer’ despite the fact that there will be tribulation in the world.

As a Christian, you can choose to dwell in the bad news you hear and allow it make you sad, or you can chose to dwell on the good news of the gospel and let joy fill your soul. The best thing still happening in the world is the saving grace of Christ Jesus. It far outweighs all the evil in the world.

When you focus on the bad news and allow it make you unhappy, it also makes you lose your spiritual strength. But when you focus on the good and pleasant things and allow thanksgiving produce true joy in your spirit, your spirit is strengthened.

Go into today determined to be a joyful person regardless of the tribulation in the word. Know that joy and thanksgiving is the will of God for you always (see 1 Thes 5:16-18).

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you always magnify Him in your life. Amen
