I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
We have to stay grounded in the following truth: God is our peace, our provision, he gives us the strength to love those we see as our enemies, we can trust in him alone, and the primary mission of our lives is to seek God first. This can help us navigate the difficult spaces in our culture with peace, wisdom, and love. When we keep it simple and focus on loving God and loving others, it is in these small acts of faithful obedience that God can do miracles.
