"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" John 16:33.
In the world you shall have tribulation, but let not your heart be troubled, be of good cheer, trust and believe in God. "For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God" John 16:27.
If you’re a true believer Jesus said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy" John 16:20.
Do not be anxious about your life, about the many troubles and trials to test you. They’re a nuisance of course but remember He’s made it easy for us to relate with the Father, breaking all barriers between us and God.
He [Jesus] came for this one reason, to destroy the works of the devil, and to give us direct access to the Father.
He said, "At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you" John 16:26. But you will pray for yourself to the Father instead.
"And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full" John 16:23-24.
In the world wherein you have tribulations, here is how you should pray; go directly to the Father and ask him, and he will give you what you ask for in Jesus’ name. He said, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace."
This he said knowing "...the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;" John 13:3.
"All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you" John 16:15.
When you ask the father in his name, he said, "he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you." Ask, using his name, and you will receive peace in abundance, and your joy will overflow. Why should you ask? Because he’s no longer with us; "A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father" John 16:16. But he’s not left us comfortless; we still can ask the Father in his name that our sorrow may be turned into unspeakable joy full of glory.
