Romans 8:37 “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”
To conquer means to be victorious, to be more than a conqueror means to be super naturally victorious.
The good news is…by the blood of Jesus Christ we already have the victory!
As Christians, we face trials, tribulations, persecution … etc, But God promises to never leave us, nor forsake us! That’s good news!!!
Through Faith we believe and trust God, no matter what it looks like. We walk by faith and not by sight.
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Paul is encouraging us to stand firm in our faith when different attacks come our way reminding us that not only will we win in the end, but Jesus enables us to win now!! The enemy lacks the power to steal our eternal destiny, and he cannot separate us from the love of God right now.
God loves us so, even when we didn’t love him. GOD gave his only begotten son JESUS, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. So, in that we don’t have to feel defeated by the enemy!!
We Are More Than Conquerors!!!
Though we might sometimes feel pressed,oppressed and in distress from the storms of life, we can be encouraged knowing we are not defeated!!!!! The joy of the Lord is our strength.
James 1: 2 & 3 “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.”
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
The only way we are defeated is that we give up and give in by moving away from GOD and not being obedient to his word.
We have to guard our minds from distractions. The enemy paints pictures to distract us from God’s promises. The enemy wants you to give up and throw in the towel. The enemy wants you to live your life in defeat and confusion! But remember you have the victory through Jesus!
Be Encouraged….! We are more than conquerors through Jesus.
There are 5 Spiritual Elements to help you endure through the storms of life:
1.) Stand On The Promises Of God (His Word)
2.) Pray Without Ceasing. (Always Pray)
3.) Stay Focused On Jesus! (Stay connected,keep your eyes and heart on JESUS)
4.) Keep Showing Up!(Don’t stop, don’t give up because of storms, keep pushing..pressing..praying your way)
5.) Old or New Grudge….Let It GO!! (Grudges will weigh us down, we can’t conquer the enemy with grudges in our hearts.
All Glory Goes To GOD.
