“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV)

Jesus prepared His disciples for His death.  He prepared them what it would be like to be a disciple of His.  He didn’t sugarcoat it.  He didn’t promise a bed of rose petals.  There would be thorns also.  But, He says, He has overcome the world.  He has paved the way for them.  As the Father was with Him, so He will be with us.  This world only offers pain and suffering for God’s people.  Be encouraged, Jesus has overcome the world and will give us the strength to stand firm on the Rock, Jesus.  We can be overcomers with Jesus by our side.
