John 16:33 "In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
The kind of tribulations that Jesus was talking about is pressure, the kind of pressure that makes you feel hemmed in, confined, and without options. It's like everything that can go wrong is going wrong, or like you're running into a wall every direction you turn.
When we find ourselves in the midst of this kind of pressure, Jesus said "be of good cheer." And in Philippians 4:6 we are told "don't worry about anything." How can we do that?
Ephesians 6:13 “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore…”
When you’re discouraged, when the situation looks bleak, when you feel you’ve done everything you know to do and nothing seems to be improving, the bible tells us to “stand therefore.” In other words, what you should do when you just don’t know what to do is STAND.
