The good stuff this week is that God is a good Father. If we ask for bread, he will not give us a stone (Luke 11). Jesus allows us to relate to God as Father, and He will not give anything other than good gifts to His children.
Jesus promises a supernatural peace to His disciples as they face difficult circumstances. Perhaps our situations will not change, but the Father can help us relate to them differently with a God-given inner peace.
