Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.Romans 8:37(KJV)
Our outstanding joy, eternal hope and unassailable victory is in Christ Jesus our Lord and so after cataloguing a fearsome list of the most traumatic circumstances of life that may afflict us in the physical, emotional and spiritual realms, and having proclaimed that nothing can separate us from Christ’s love, including tribulation and distress; famine and nakedness; peril; persecution and death.
Paul emphatically declares that in every single situation that crosses our path in time and eternity, it is through Christ and in Christ that we are overwhelming conquers and irrepressible victors – because of His great love for each of us.
Should this not rejoice our heart? Should this not comfort our soul? Should we not praise His wonderful name for all His overflowing blessings of love and the immeasurable depths of grace towards us?
How often are we enjoined to abide in Christ, to rest in Him and remain Him and once again we are reminded that when faith is founded on this one, sure Foundation, nothing can destroy our hope; demolish our faith; disturb our peace or disrupt our fellowship with the lover of our soul, for when we remain in Christ we become irrepressible conquers and overwhelming victors.
This is a godly principle of faith – that when we abide in Christ during the inevitable disasters that flood our lives, faith increases; trust is amplified; hope is expanded, and our love of Jesus reaches even greater heights.
Oh, such life victory has nothing to do with our great strength or ability; for of ourselves we would be overwhelmed by all these things rather that being a conquer through Christ. We must remember that we are overwhelming victors NOW – not only in the future but today, for He has promised that in ALL these things we are MORE than conqueror THROUGH Him, that LOVED us.
Let us believe His word which states that: in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.
Praise Your wonderful name for this glorious truth that no matter what happens in my life, I am a conqueror through Christ. Help me not only to see this as a future hope but as a present victory in Him today, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
