Praising God from A to Z - Day 15

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33
Life in this world is not always easy. In fact, the Bible makes it clear that even when we become Christians, life doesn’t necessarily get easier. Life can often become more difficult because by declaring our allegiance to God, we also declare our stand against the enemy. When you are walking in the path God has for you, the enemy will work harder to derail you. I often used to think that facing adversity meant I was doing something wrong or that I was being punished for something. Thankfully, I now know that this is simply not true. Now, don’t misunderstand, we absolutely will face consequences for our sinful choices but God isn’t out to get you for every little thing you do wrong. Think of it more as a loving parent who gives a consequence because they know it is how you will learn to make better choices next time. The good news in all of this is that Christ has already overcome the world! We can have peace knowing that trials will not last forever. We already know the rest of the story, and the enemy does not win! Thank God today that he is your overcomer.
