12 Sep More Than a Conqueror
Whatever your circumstances, whatever your battle is today, God’s encouragement and promise to you is this: YOU are more than a conqueror!
❌ Not just a warrior.
❌ Not just a winner.
❌ Not just a survivor.
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” (Romans 8:37 ESV)
You are “more than a conqueror!” It means that YOU and I get the overwhelming and complete victory. It means we do more than just survive the battle; WE TRIUMPH OVER IT. It means that the thing that was formed *against* you becomes the thing that works *for* you (Romans 8:28). Indeed, the very thing that was meant to take you down can be the very thing that sets you free. It means that there is more…so much MORE to this thing that you’re battling than meets your own eye.
But you’ll never get the overwhelming, more-than-a-conqueror victory by trying to figure it all out from your own perspective or battling it in your own strength. There’s only one way to become “more than a conqueror” and that’s the condition to the promise: “through Christ Jesus who loved us!”
YOU… are more than a conqueror, and the overwhelming victory is yours in Christ who loved you so much that He died for you! How can you be anything less, when you put your trust in the One who conquered the grave? With Him all things are possible, for those who believe (Mark 9:23).
More on this later this week…and in the meantime, don’t forget to remember that YOU are greatly and dearly loved by The King!
And I love y’all, too!
