You Aren’t Promised A Rose Garden Life

 

Joyce Meyers said, “The Bible never promised us a life without problems, but Christ has overcome the world for us and through Him we have victory!” “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:34 NKJV). We don’t live in a trouble-free environment. We live in an age of all kinds of technological gadgets that help us each day, (such as the computer I’m typing on) but they can be trouble. Mechanical things such as cars, appliances, etc., can be helpful but also trouble. We live is a sinful world where bad things happen. That doesn’t sound too good.

However, as Jesus said, “Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world: (John 16:33). Things happen and we can’t stop them, but we don’t have to let these things devastate us. Jesus overcame. We are in Christ, so we can overcome also. Too many times we let things overcome us, when we should be overcomers. “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4 NKJV).
