Be of Good Cheer!

Jesus said in John 16:33 “….In me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

There He is in the middle of your trouble, reminding you that He already paid for that trouble! Don’t steal it from Him. The small and large things……they all belong to Him.

There was an olympic diver who was training. He was an atheist, but had a Christian friend, who was vocal about his faith. He was always preaching to his friend about Jesus, the friend didn’t listen to his sermons very intently and in fact, at times, became irritated at them. Nevertheless, this Christian friend persevered in his glorious testimonies and faith to his atheist friend.

One day the atheist diver went to the indoor swimming pool on campus to practice diving. The lights were off in the arena where the pool was, but the skylights let in a soft glow from the full moon; plenty of light to practice with. The diver proceeded up to the top of the diving board scale; arrived at the highest board and got ready to jump. As he stretched his arms out to dive, his image in a shadow on the wall, a perfect cross, caught his eye. He became convicted of his atheist views and the love of the Lord flooded him. Jesus showed Himself to this man that day in an unusual way. He immediately knelt down on the diving board and ask Jesus to be Lord of his life. At that moment, the janitor came into the building and turned on the lights. The diver looked down to see the swimming pool had been completely emptied of water for maintenance.

Jesus is always just in time. Be at peace, He’s on time for you too!
