We Overwhelmingly Conquer

We Overwhelmingly Conquer

The world is  in a turmoil  in many ways.     There are wars,  terrorists,  political wranglings,  economic woes,  natural disasters,  and all sorts  of personal concerns.     Some feel hopeless  and unable  to endure the stress.     But,  when we face the truth  of how God has given us  a Savior  in Jesus Christ  and that all things  will be judged justly  in the end,  we can be at peace  and say along  with Paul  in Romans 8:35-39,

Who shall separate us  from the love  of Christ?     Shall tribulation,  or distress,  or persecution,  or famine,  or nakedness,  or peril,  or sword?     Just as it is written,

“For Thy sake  we are being put to death  all day long;   
We were considered as sheep  to be slaughtered.”

But in all these things  we overwhelmingly conquer  through Him  who loved us.     For I am convinced  that neither death,  nor life,  nor angels,  nor principalities,  nor things present,  nor things to come,  nor powers,  nor height,  nor depth,  nor any other created thing,  shall be able to separate us  from the love of God,  which is  in Christ Jesus  our Lord.

Whatever sort of thing tries  to eternally destroy God’s children  will fail  —  as we put our faith  in Jesus Christ,  the God of gods,  LORD of lords  and King of kings.     In many places  in God’s word,  we are forewarned  that we will surely face  all sorts  of trials  and tribulations.     That is why Paul quoted Psalm 44:22,  saying,  “For Thy sake  we are being put to death  all day long;  we were considered  as sheep  to be slaughtered.”

As we face our particular turmoils,  let us “overwhelmingly conquer”  through faith  in Jesus Christ.     Let us look  to Him.     Put our hope  in Him.     Trust  in Him.     He alone is able  to help us  in our needs.

And,  He is waiting for us  to call  on Him.

As we realize  that we have  to face this world’s problems,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     My Savior,  You have already won the victory  over sin,  death,  and the devil.     Help me  to always remember  that I can win  because You have already won.     Blessed be  Your loving faithfulness.”

Love,
Margaret
