Be of Good Cheer

Be of Good Cheer

"In the world ye shall have tribulation: 
but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." 
(John 16:33)

My Lord's words are true as to the tribulation. 
I have my share of it beyond all doubt. 
The flail is not hung up out of the way, 
nor can I hope that it will be laid aside so long as I lie upon the threshing floor, 
How can I look to be at home in the enemy's country, 
joyful while in exile, or comfortable in a wilderness? 
This is not my rest. 
This is the place of the furnace, and the forge, and the hammer. 
My experience tallies with my Lord's words.

I note how He bids me "be of good cheer."
 Alas! I am far too apt to be downcast. 
My spirit soon sinks when I am sorely tried. 
But I must not give way to this feeling. 
When my Lord bids me cheer up I must not dare to be cast down.

What is the argument which He uses to encourage me? 
Why, it is His own victory. 
He says, "I have overcome the world." 
His battle was much more severe than mine.

I have not yet resisted unto blood. 
Why do I despair of overcoming?
 See, my soul, the enemy has been once overcome. 
I fight with a beaten foe. 
O world, Jesus has already vanquished thee; and in me,
 by His grace, He will overcome thee again. 

Therefore am I of good cheer and sing unto my conquering Lord.

Special request:
 I have been praying to God Almighty in relation to my new residence and I need each of you please, to take me in your prayers, I need guidance, favor, and mercy it is one of the most important steps of my life I do not know if He wants me to go to my country, asking God Almighty to open doors wide open for whatever are HIS decision and to confirm thru his Holy Spirit. Amen.
 He is the #1 in my life and the most important, 
my purpose is for HIM to increase and I know that HIS Word never comes back void. 
Isaiah 55:11 King James Version (KJV)
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:
 it shall not return unto me void, 
but it shall accomplish that which I please, 
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
