Jesus won’t leave us through our struggles

In training, airplane pilots spend many hours in flight simulators. The simulators help the pilot experience how flying the aircraft will be but without any risks involved.

When it comes to real life though, it can’t be simulated. It comes with ups and downs, risks and dangers.

In John 16:33, Jesus tells us: “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.”

In spite of all of the struggles we face, we are not alone. Jesus will not leave us.

We must remember that the ultimate victory has already been won, so we can claim the peace of Christ in the most troublesome times.
