In John 17, Jesus prays for His disciples — that they wouldn’t be taken out of this world, but rather, would be strengthened to be used for God’s glory.
Because we are believers and disciples of Christ today, His prayer also applies to you and me! That means you have been sent into this world with strength and power.
When trials come, there’s no reason to have a pity party about them, saying, “Poor me; I’m under attack.” Jesus has already overcome the world, so in Him we are overcomers. He gives us everything we need pertaining to “life and godliness” (2 Pet. 1:3). It’s already ours. We have to wake up and actually use it, but we don’t have to strive to attain it.
We already have everything we need to walk in the victory won for us in Christ. The Holy Spirit that lives within you is inviting you to “live and move and have our being” in Him (Acts 17:28). He is the One who overcomes. In Him so do we.
