Romans 8:37, “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”
When we believe in Jesus’ work on the cross we become “more than conquerors” because Jesus defeated death, hell, and the grave on our behalf. Jesus became our substitutionary sacrifice and made atonement for all our sins, past, present, and future to the Father. Therefore, for those who are in Christ Jesus there is no outside force that can defeat them or separate them from Christ’s love.
What are you facing today? Sickness, hardships, loneliness, satanic attacks, or death itself? In all the troubles you face, you are more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ who loves you. Testimonies come from tests and victories come from battles. Therefore, don’t give up when you face hardships and tough times- for God is with you and nothing can stand against you.
Sometimes people die and it doesn’t seem like all their “battles” were won, however, God doesn’t promise that every victory will happen in this life. Some battles are won after death when the Kingdom of God permanently resides with man on the new earth. Therefore, don’t lose heart in your momentary struggles, God is with you and you will see the victory either in this life or the one to come.
Think about your life from God’s perspective- He can see the big picture from start to finish. He even knows what heaven and the new earth will be like. As a result, when He says you a “more than a conqueror” He knows it is the truth. It is up to you and I to believe it!
- Think of the biggest hardship (outside of temptation) that you are facing today. For example, “sickness, financial trouble, etc.”
- Then pray out loud, “___fill in the blank with your hardship______ (ex. Sickness) will not separate me from the love of Christ- I am more than a conqueror through Him who loves me.”
- Lastly, live today in the confidence of your confession of faith in Jesus Christ.
