More Than a Conqueror
But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.
No matter what comes into your life, you have victory through Christ.
You don’t just have victory; you have overwhelming victory. You have above and beyond victory. The enemy will come against and will, at times, make life difficult. You will not fear or worry because you know that in Christ, you always overcome.
Every day you enter into battle and face enemies of various kinds. Some strong, some small, and some frightening, but in Jesus Christ, you will overcome them all.
The greatest enemy is death.
So many people fear death, they go to the gym, eat healthily, and hope to extend life as long as possible. For the Christian, there is no fear of death because Christ conquered death on the cross and gave you eternal life. The great battle of death has been won in Jesus Christ. You have victory over death because Christ has you have eternal life. Why fear death when it is just the doorway into the eternal presence of Christ.
You are more than a victor over sin because Christ has set you free from the power and penalty of sin.
Sin no longer has power over you. You have been set free. The old habits and temptations no longer have a hold on you because you have victory over them.
You are victorious over the powers of darkness that come against you.
As a member of the army of God, you are waging war and defeating the kingdom of darkness. Every day you gain victory in your life and the lives of those around you through the power of the Holy Spirit in you.
You are victorious in every area of your life because the Holy Spirit is filling and empowering you every day.
Day to day victories are won because Christ lives in you. Moment by moment, the Holy Spirit is guiding, filling, and strengthening you. You have the mind of Christ and the power of Christ living in you.
No matter what the world may throw your way today, you will have victory. The one who loves you complete is giving you victory in every area of life.
Look at that verse once again.
But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. – Romans 8:37
Confess this with me.
- In Jesus Christ, I have overwhelming victory.
- I don’t fear death because Jesus conquered it.
- I have victory over fear, worry, and temptation.
- I overcome every attack of Satan because Christ is in me.
- Jesus empowers and fills me with His Spirit
- Today, I am more than a conqueror.
In Jesus Name,
Today, live in the overwhelming victory Jesus gives you.
