I really enjoyed the bible phone time this week. When we read John 16:29-22, I was captivated by the Lord’s glory. In the past, I would just be reminded that in the Lord we have peace to overcome tribulations, but this time I realize more how the Lord faced this hour with the Father. The Lord knew the disciples would leave Him alone but He was not alone, and He was full of faith that the Father was with Him to face that hour. I was amazed by the Lord’s faith and comfort to them even when He was to face this tough time ahead.
As I continued my personal time, I wrote this down:
Lord, You know the hour has come
The disciples will be scattered
They will lose faith
They will leave you alone
Yet You were full of faith
Not a single thought of self pity
You declare that You are not alone
The Father is with you.
You comfort them
In You they may have peace
See the hope ahead
You have overcome the world.
