When Your Problems Seem Overwhelming

When you feel overwhelmed remember that Jesus warned us we'd have problems but He gave us a wonderful word of assurance.

Sometimes our problems seem overwhelming. Only the very young will argue with this truth.

Christ told us it would be that way:
"In this world you will have trouble."

But Jesus didn't end there. He added,
"But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33

Jesus makes no promises that life will be easy. In fact, He tells us to expect troubles, sorrows, persecution, and trials, things that will sometimes make us feel like giving up (Matthew 10:22; Galatians 6:9).

But He assures us that we can take heart in His work.

He has purchased for us an eternity of perfect peace and joy.

Until then, whenever we feel overwhelmed, we can take our negative thoughts captive and make our minds obedient to the truth that Christ has overcome and we are also overcomers (Romans 8:37).

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5
