Jesus overcame the limits of the world. He told his disciples He was an overcomer. He told them this so that they would have joy. He did not say they would not have problems. He said they would have problems in the world. He said they could find peace and joy in Him because He had overcome the world.
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.
(John 16:33)

Be of Good Cheer, Jesus Overcame the Limits of the World
It is easy for us to see Jesus as an overcomer. It is sometimes hard to see ourselves as overcomers. All of us have failed to live up to our fullest potential.

However, our present situation does not mean the Word of God is not true. John said in 1 John 5:4, "Whoever is born of God overcomes the world." If you are a Christian you have the ability within you to overcome the power of the world and the limits of the world.

The book of John stated that you have the greatness of the Holy Spirit in you. This power from within gives you the ability to overcome the world and its limits.

In the Apostle John's day there were some false prophets who were bothering some of his spiritual children (1 John 4:1-6). They apparently struggled against these false teachers and won a victory in their lives.

The Apostle John said to them after their triumph of faith: "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4).

God has given us the Holy Spirit to guide us and to help us discern good from evil. When we follow the inner leading and urging of the Holy Spirit, we will fulfill God's will for our lives and bring glory to God (John 16:5-15).

All Christians have this power within them. This power needs to be recognized and applied to all our situations and circumstances. The Holy Spirit gives us power over the limits of the world.

Jesus overcame the world and we can be full of joy because He defeated the evil God of this world. We have the right to enjoy the benefits of His victory over the devil.

The strength and power of God are within us, and we can be victorious over any limits the world of darkness can throw at us.
