“PROMISES FOR THE GRIEVING!” By Matthew Nikoley

In John chapter 14, Jesus was anticipating His own death. In this portion of Scripture are given several promises. These promises are conditional. There is a requirement that must be met before we are able to enjoy the blessing of God’s promises.

  • We are promised an everlasting peace.

He promised us His peace. A peace that passes all understanding.

John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Psalm 29:11, “The Lord will give strength unto His people: The Lord will bless His people with peace.”

The peace that only Jesus can give comes from within – A peace that comes from an undying confidence that God is in control.

  • Jesus is sufficient to meet all these problems.

The Scripture says in John 14:1 “Let not your heart be troubled…”

Death of a loved one can surely bring about a troubled heart. It is not a normal everyday occurrence, or nearly every day. Because it is not normal.

  1. Because of the hurt.
  2. Because of the empty place that is behind.

CONTINUED TOMORROW!
