Calm Assurance of Him…

John 16:33
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.
How many times have we told ourselves, “This is the end!I can’t move forward anymore…” ?
Numerous times in life, we think we are doomed and lose all hope. When trials and tribulation come we may not find by ourselves the strength to fight back. That’s the point when we ask God, “Are you there? Won’t you help me?

Now, there is one more twitch. How would our life have been if there was no God? He is the first one we blame/cry out to when calamity strikes? Who can provide us any hope when everyone else fail? The air we breathe in and the air we breathe out is because He sustains us! Every tiny person who spread a smile on our face when we are in tears is a gift of God but just that handle them carefully. Thank God for the good relations that we enjoy with others…
So these two things present two different faces of the same story:
#Doubt of, “God, are you there? Won’t you help me?”
#What would I do without you Lord? Thank you for everything…
Its about how you visualize the story.
* When we are in stress the world around may seem to choke us and we feel crippled to move ahead. We get too busy and lost in the worries that we forget the ‘calm assurance of God’ while its only a matter of  belief, acceptance and prayer on knees to gain that assurance.
* The second one is driven by the peace that He who has overcome the world is with us. He has already warned us that in the world we do have tribulation! But to take courage since He is with us… That’s the best assurance we can ever get….
Its up to us about which side to choose. Most of the time we forget God when worries come and we seek God only when all other means fail. May God shine His light into our hearts and fill us with His calm assurance to overcome the tribulations…
As the popular song lyrics goes:
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone,
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!
Be of good Cheer… 
God bless you…
