These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. John 16:33
Opposition doesn’t prevent the presence of God, it provides an opportunity for the presence of God to be proven in your life.
Jesus said, “Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” The Great Physician has a good prescription. Gain His perspective. Even in sorrow, take heart and wear a cheerful countenance. Look at Christ and reflect His light. Giving to others will also feed your soul and cheer you up.
Lord, I ask You to show me areas in my life where opposition is taking away my joy. I ask that in You my joy will be full. I pray that You would give me an opportunity today and this week for the presence of God to be proven in my life so others can see and experience you. In Jesus name, Amen
