“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us,” Romans 8:37
Win?! Of course you want to win. Who doesn’t want to be victorious? I don’t know anybody who really wants to lose – do you? I didn’t think so. Humanity was designed this way. When God created us, He said it was “good.” We were created in the perfect way He designed us. Not only were we created perfectly but we were created to live in perfect surroundings. The most perfect place on earth was “The Garden of Eden.” With that we have expectations. When our surroundings now don’t match up with what we were designed for, that’s where one begins to feel conflicted over their situation in life. They begin to feel confused and desire a better outcome. “There has to be more to it than this!”
The good news is, there is! There is a whole lot more to it than this. Thank, God! Oh my, does He have some stuff in store for us. He has designed the better for you to look for, and He has designed you to look for the better. It’s not always going to be like this.
Yay! The problem with us is that when we are faced with our personal trials and tribulations, it blocks the focus of that which is better. It impedes our progress from trying to reach that greater thing that God has in store for us and it makes us feel that we are not going to win at all. If anything, it begins to have the reverse effect of pulling us down with a “never to succeed” attitude.
“In all these things we are more than conquerors!” We want to win in our Christian life! When we get into those moments of feeling like we are being pulled down, moments that try to block the better focus, we need to take a time out to see what God says about us. “We are more than conquerors!” Think about it, a conqueror’s goal is to defeat obstacles in their life. They go into battle with a winning attitude believing in the end victory will be theirs.
We are more! There is an expectation with God’s people that we can do more. We can be more! We are victorious! We are overcomers!. We can see this through to the end! It will turn out to our favor! God wants you to triumph over everything that tries to get in the way of you obtaining the greatness that He has in store for you. Jesus said, “But be of good cheer; I have overcome the world,” (John 16:33, KJV). Everything in this world that could possibly try to stop you, Jesus said it’s under foot. Just begin to stomp it down because He has already secured the victory for you over it. If you are in Christ, and Christ has already won, “I have overcome the world,” then that means, you have already won, also.
I will never declare that times of sadness won’t come for the Bible said there is a season for all things, Ecc.3. But, when it’s over we have the opportunity to look back on what Christ has already done for us, and make the same declaration He did, “I have overcome!” The finality of it all is already settled. The outcome has already been written. “I am more than a conqueror and today I’m going to keep my winning attitude.”
Go ahead, you can do it. You can be a winner!
