John 16:33 AMPC

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]!  For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.] 

1.  Your personal motivation….you’re going to have to encourage yourself.

1 Samuel 30:6 KJV

“And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.”

2.  Your place….where you work and worship….

Genesis 50:19-20 KJV

“And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?

20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.”

3.  Your favor matters.

Genesis 39:21 KJV

“But the Lord was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.”

Acts 7:10 AMPC

“And delivered him from all his distressing afflictions and won him goodwill and favor and wisdom and understanding in the sight of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, who made him governor over Egypt and all his house.”

Exodus 12:36 AMPC

“The Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they gave them what they asked. And they stripped the Egyptians [of those things].”

4.  Your trustworthiness matters.

Psalm 20:7 KJV

“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.”

5.  Knowledge matters because it allows you to make wise choices.

Proverbs 19:2 AMPC

“And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship.”
