. I God . I did a simple search about times when Jesus said to be of good cheer. This is what I found, which coincidentally, is one of my life verses…
“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.” (John 16:33, NKJV)
That’s some good news, isn’t it?! Jesus knows you might be anxious because of all the trouble in the world. Still, He wants YOU to be at peace and of good cheer, because He overcame the trouble-causing world.
If you’re feeling anxious, troubled, or weighed down today, remember Jesus’s words. Let them lift your heart and mind from the struggles to place where Jesus is.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for lifting me up when I feel weighted down. I want to be cheerful, and I need your peace. Help me to find it today by looking beyond my troubles to find the truth in you. I ask this in the healing and helping name of Christ.Amen.
