"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
shall tribulation, or distress, or persection,
or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors
through him that loved us."
Romans 8:35,37

More Than Conquerors!

The word "conquerors" appears only once in the Holy Bible.
However, we often hear how we can become "more than
conquerors" through Christ Jesus. This verse touched my
heart this morning, and I wanted to share it with you.

People have different ways of dealing with problems life
tosses at them.
Some are constant complainers, who don't handle setbacks
and upsetting periods very well.
Some of them cannot even handle normal events.
There are those who are defeated at the slightest difficulty.
And quite a few get confused, turned around and seem not
to know what to do or where to go next.

But then, there are a handful who are unconquerable!
Problem after problem can smack them square in the face,
but they just stomp around enough until they actually use
the problem to rise above it!

Look at the great heroes of the Bible.
They were men and women who could match the occasion.
Moses was that kind of man.
Surely Joseph, who rose from the bottom of a pit to a
leader of Egypt, was that kind of man.
And could David have been anything other than the kind
of man who rose above his faults and problems?
Esther was surely the kind of woman who did not let
problems paralyze her also!
On and on we could go, mentioning "conquerors"
throughout God's Word, but I believe the point has been
made here with these select few.
"But how was this all done?" you may ask.

The reason such people could rise out of the traps or
problems of life they encountered is because they all had a
great deal of faith in God.

It is a childish attitude that says, "If God really loved
me, He would take away all these problems." Not so!!
Actually, the opposite is really true. God loves us. He
will reveal Himself to us through His Word and give us
opportunity to let our faith lift us up. God wants us to
learn how to do it. He wants us to work at it. And when
we realize that and accept it, it will give us a power to
deal with living we never experienced before!
For we are more than conquerors through Christ,
who loved us enough to die for us!
