"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
I was creating this painting during a Live Feed video on social media, and asked those watching if they had any prayer requests that we as a group could pray for them. As people were sharing the various things going on in their lives, issues with their health, a loved one passing, conflict within their family, an unsaved family member, I was reminded of this verse. Jesus was well acquainted with the trials of this life, He was despised and hated by the very people He came to save. And yet, our hope is in the fact that He has already won. The victory is already determined. Take heart, in this world you will have trouble, but Jesus has overcome!
