You're an Overcomer

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. John 16:33 We live in a world filled with suffering and pain. Every day that goes by we are witnessing horrible things in our society. When we think we’ve seen the worst, something else happens that tops it. There seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. How can we overcome the things that are going on in the world? It is only through Jesus Christ! In the Scripture above, Jesus tells us that we would have tribulation in this world, but to be of good cheer because He has overcome the world. How does His victory over the world help us?
