Good Cheer For Hours Of Trial John 16:25-33

John 16:25-33

God still speaks to us in proverbs. We could not understand or receive the perfect discovery of Himself. These are but part of His ways, Job_26:14. But in a little while, when the entire mystery of His will has been fulfilled, we shall see Him face to face, and He will speak to us plainly about the things that we do not now understand.

There is a close connection between prayer and joy. In the midst of a battle, when the soldiers are weary, galled with fire and grimed with smoke, if the general rides into their midst, to cheer them with hearty words and to assure them that the key to the position is already taken, they fight with the inspiration of victory. So down the line our Leader and Commander sends this encouragement. Let us carry His peace in our hearts, and be of good courage, 1Jn_5:4-5.
