Jeremiah 19:9 says “the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Mankind is inwardly corrupt but Christ gives us hope. We have to renew our minds and crucify our flesh daily. It takes Jesus to overcome this world. God says we are to occupy until he comes because there will be no justice until his divine will comes. In order to “occupy” we must pray, fast and develop our character. Keep a smile on your face and joy in your heart! John 16:33 says “these things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” You can be cheerful because God has overcome the world, which means we have overcome the world!
