I don’t have an answer to the pain and the struggle in life. You all know that the only gospel I preach is the gospel of “I don’t know.” The only thing I do know, beyond any shadow of a doubt, is that God gets the last word. No matter what wounds we bear, He can and does heal them.
Whatever it is you’re grieving for tonight, whatever words are cutting you tonight, whatever loneliness or pain or distress is breaking your heart tonight, I can assure you that the war is won. There will be battles yet to come. But Jesus said, “I have overcome the world.” So take heart. Win or lose the battles in between, God has already won the war. And our banner of victory boldly bears the name of Jesus.
