“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. 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, Amplified Bible
Imagine that you are standing in a glass dome. The glass is so clear and transparent that you have to stay reminded that just because you can see something coming at you or hear loud noise all around you, doesn’t mean it will harm or destroy you. You are in Christ and you are covered at every side by His impenetrable shield, sealed with His Holy Spirit of promise (see Colossians 3:3; Ephesians 1:13). You are in the palm of God’s hand, and nothing can pluck you out (see John 10:29).
Next time you see bad news coming your way, picture that news running right into the glass dome that surrounds you and falling to the ground. See that negative report slamming right into the protective shield of God’s truth and falling to the ground. Because you are covered at every side, my sister, all is well. All is well in your body. All is well in your soul. All is well in your money. All is well with you because you are covered by your Father.
Prayer: Thank you, Father, for speaking this truth to my heart. Let me understand it more deeply until it becomes revelation that brings great transformation in my life. Thank you that all is well with me because I am covered by you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Read Isaiah 54:17)
