Week Six, Day Five
What does it feel like when you win? Have you ever noticed the sweetest victories often follow hardship? Winning doesn’t seem as satisfying if you haven’t struggled with something in order to get there. What does that mean to us as peacemakers in the world? How are we victorious?
As we live as peacemakers in this world, we will have trouble, heartache and heartbreak. People will reject us, mock us, and betray us. Our efforts at peacemaking will be seen by some as weakness. But John 16:33 tells us this, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
How does this change your perspective of winning as a peacemaker? Often times we may not see the fruit of our effort on this side of heaven, but we have to trust in His promise. He has overcome and in Him we are and will be victorious.
