Topic: Be Of Good Cheer
Scripture: In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.] John 16:33 (AMPC)

What does the Bible say about discipline and self-control?
Life in today’s world can be stressful and frustrating—but as a Christian you do not have to operate in the world’s system. Yes, you will face difficult and trying situations, but you can refuse to be agitated, disturbed, and upset (see John 14:27). Even in the midst of your problems you can be happy and confident, cheerful and courageous. Now that’s good news!
When you come to the end of a tiring and frustrating day, it is good to spend time with God, thanking Him for overcoming the world on your behalf. Reflecting on His goodness will calm your spirit and prepare you for a peaceful night of rest.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for helping me through this day. Thank You for Your goodness to me, for your help, provision, guidance, and direction. I love You, amen!
