"In this world you will have trouble…" We will have trouble. God has already promised us this in His Word. Tragedy is an inevitable part of life. And that means that we will also experience grief, anger, and overwhelming questions: "What do we do now? How do we respond to this tragedy? Where is God when this happens?"
Dr. Charles Stanley has heard those questions-has even asked them himself-as he and those in his congregation have faced individual moments of tragedy. Tragedy, whether on a national scale or as part of a private life, has the same devastating effect. "But in the Bible there are answers," Dr. Stanley says. "God's Word shows us how to live when tragedy strikes." And we can be assured by the conclusion of John 16:33 to "take heart!" He has indeed overcome the world!
