This article brings fresh applications to a familiar biblical text—John 16:33. Jesus is preparing his disciples—including us—to face life’s struggles when he is not physically present. Lauren Whitman shows how Jesus carefully leads us into hope and confidence as we face the troubles in our lives. She then gives two examples from her counseling to illustrate how she used the passage to minister to others.
