John 16:33 NKJV

These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

In John 14:27, Jesus told His disciples that He was giving them His peace and leaving it with them. Here in the 16th chapter of John, He tells them one of the ways they can embrace that peace - through the things He spoke to them. So they could meditate on what Jesus said to enable them to experience the peace He gave. Let us look at what Jesus said to us - particularly what He said about the things that may be challenging our peace. Let us give His words more attention than we give the challenge. The outcome will eventually be our experiencing the peace He came to give us.
