Be Of Good Cheer

January 9, 2009

Jesus said, that in this world we would have tribulation, but even so to be of good cheer, for He had overcome the world. Today, as I was contemplating the row of guillotines seemingly arrayed before me on my path, the impossibility of doing what He said loomed large, if that even describes it. That was, until the revelation broke through.

How many trials have we entered, where the threat of being swallowed up seemed far larger than the hope of being delivered? Truth be told, most of them. But it’s by God’s own doing, as His strength is perfected in our weakness. And that’s the key – the revelation: His strength in me – not mine.

So, if you’re in a trial that seems hopeless, just realize that you’re there because He’s leading you to the light of Himself. Get ready – to be of good cheer.
