Weekly Truth

Today's Text: John 16:33

We believe memorizing scripture is one of the best ways to carry the Word of our God with us wherever we go—to have God-breathed truth, instruction and reproof in our hearts and minds as we live unto Him each day.

This week we’re memorizing a peace-filled promise from our beloved Jesus. May it remind us to lean on His sovereignty!

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
– John 16:33, ESV

Write this verse down—copy it twenty time if that helps! Post it on your mirror or at your desk, in your car or on the fridge—anywhere you’ll see it often. Save the image below as your phone’s lock screen so you can read these words of truth throughout the day.

We want to be a community that is intentional about scripture memorization. Will you join us?

  • love. beautiful picture. going on lock screen now

  • love this…every time I get on my phone I see truth!!

  • I know John 3:16

  • So simple but so profound and continuously seeping deeper into me because I have been in the study with you all daily in His Word.
    As I worked my way through the study ( not always one per day I have to confess- sometimes I had catch up to do !) I had ah ha moments where I got it and it was personal and real to me !
    As I memorize John 16:33 I marvel at Jesus telling me that I "may" find peace in Him but "will " find tribulation in the world. I choose to find peace in Him not tribulation in the world and I walk that choice out by reading His Word ..
    Thank you sisters at SRT and commentators for your transparency, effort and commitment to being shepherds and feeding His sheep. Love to you all

  • I’ve been challenged with loneliness recently in school and have been wondering why this is an ongoing battle for me but this verse really speaks truth and relieves my heart of brokenness and pain. God has overcome my stress and worries already and nothing of this World can change that. God’d grace and love abounds all❤️ Thank you Jesus!

  • Ida Pahus

    Wow, just love this!!!

  • What a timely verse! In a time of my life where I’m reflecting a lot on those that are in my community (family, friends, church) and realizing the filtering that needs to occur due lots of hurt and brokenness! This verse definitely spoke to my heart!!

  • It is so comforting to know that with all that goes on with the world, Jesus has overcome this war. We know the end, the victor, and the prize. We walk knowing what ever we go through, God has overcome it all. Thank you God for your strength and love.

  • Glory! I am in a period of my life where this scripture has spoken to me and has been a light for a second chance opportunity to renew my relationship with Christ.

  • My heart definitely needs to be encouraged today. I feel like the enemy wants me to believe that God doesn’t answer my prayers. Today’s verse says take heart.. I have overcome. I am choosing to believe Jesus has overcome this battle. He will overcome and be victorious in my life today and every day.

  • Zipcaddy

    Amen!

  • Maya Cryor

    I was wondering how do the artists create the beautiful scripture images?

  • Kimmie47

    Thank you for this beautiful scripture today. "These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." NKJV
    I love that! Nothing is bigger, or more powerful than our God. Nothing is stronger than his love. No matter what obstacle we face, or where we are in this life, we serve a God that has promised us PEACE. No matter what happens, let me be of good cheer. He has overcome it all! Happy Sunday sisters! :)

  • Ah, for sure needed this today….after the day I had yesterday….
    I was scammed by people claiming to be from Microsoft….they have taken money out of my account to the tune of nearly £350… having discovered this everything on my computer has been cancelled…which means until tomorrow I cannot know the true damage for my stupidity…and ignorance…
    So yes, I will take heart, knowing that my Savior has overcome the world and these wicked and nasty people on my behalf….
    Disappointed in myself but, have learnt a very serious and never to be repeated lesson…

    God bless you Sisters…Happy Sunday…xx

    • MNmomma
