This verse is deeply strengthening when we face difficult circumstances in our lives. When trouble comes (because we know it will) what do we do? How do we handle it?
John 16:33 MSG
"I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world."
Unshakable and unmovable are words that we can lean into when the ground feels uneven. The words that give us hope and assurance are in the promises of God. God tells us that He knows we are going to have trying times. He knows we are going to have to deal with trials and difficult situations. He knows that we are going to need His strength in order to persevere.
Worship is one of the most powerful things that we can do to help us through the process of perseverance. Trust, assurance, unmovable, peace and victory. These particular words are found in the lyrics we might be familiar with through worship. Search for worship songs that will bring comfort to your particular set of circumstances.
