Jesus Overcame the World

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
(John 16:33)  

The word tribulation in Greek can be translated as pressure and can also mean anguish, burdened, persecution, or trouble. It is easy for us to feel succumbed to life's pressures and anguish during these times.We have children killing children, sex & slave trafficking, heightened race and sex issues, broad daylight, etc. HOWEVER, as the body of Christ, we must remember though the tribulations we see seem greater, God is that much greater to overcome the things we see. Christ asked us to be encouraged despite these things because he has subdued the world. There is nothing in the world that could take away His Glory. At some point we need to speak to our circumstances and consider ourselves victors and not the victim. We have power over our circumstances. No more letting this world deceive us into thinking our foundation is crumbling. I refuse to let this world discount what Jesus did for us. Jesus overcame the world. YES, Jesus did it. Stand in your victory. It's like the bully, at some point you have to face it face to face.

During my college football days spring football was 10% Physical / 90% Mental. It is the same for challenging military / law enforcement training programs.  This refers to how well you mentally push yourself through pain. My former coach once told me "mental is twice as hard if you show up out the shape."  So the key here is to show up mentally prepared when your circumstance start to rise up so you can break every chain. 

Remember ... JESUS DID IT!
