More Than Conquerors

TODAY’S VERSE
“In all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”
Romans 8:37 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Life can get hard. There are so many days that I wake up and I can hardly conquer brushing my teeth, let alone all the battles I have lined up for the day. How can I possibly win the difficulties I am facing? And yet Paul writes, “Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?” Paul answers, “No despite all these things”; despite all these struggles and difficulties, what? Despite all that life can dish out, “in all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” But this isn’t simply getting a victory in a negative circumstance. No, Paul says that we are more than a conqueror. It is more than coming out on top of a difficulty. It is living with the realization that we are His child no matter what our circumstances. We are more than a conqueror, we are His ambassador.  We have been chosen by God to live for Him and are part of His family. Today, when problems come up, when it seems that everything is going wrong, remember that Christ has given you everything you need to be a conqueror. But more than a conqueror, He has called you to be His beloved child, an heir with Christ, set free with His blood and given power by His resurrection.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for making me more than a conqueror over all the difficulties I go through. Thank You for loving me and giving me everything I need to live for You. Help me believe this Father and live in it’s reality today.
AMEN

TODAY’S VERSE
“I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, – But we must hold on to the progress we have already made.”
Philippians 3:13,16 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We find ourselves in so many difficult situations. Often it is so hard to discern God’s will. I could easily spend all my time asking “Why?” I could spend endless hours full of bitterness, fear or sorrow. But then what? What has this accomplished? Isn’t faith about trusting God even when things don’t go the way we think they should? Isn’t it His will for us to let go, trust Him and move on? But we want closure. There must be justice, revenge or something that has a semblance of fairness. Who says? Who started that rumor? Life is not fair. Paul said that we see reality as if we were looking through a dark piece of glass. Things don’t always make sense. But God does. And the best advice anyone can give you was given by Paul. He writes, “I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.” There was too much for Paul to do, too much grace to enjoy, too much love of God to celebrate. Why should we spend all our time looking backwards? Instead, Paul forced himself to look ahead. Why? Because if we are going to make it in this life, Paul says, “we must hold on to the progress we have already made.” Today, hang on to the progress and maturity God has blessed you with. Let go of the past, let it go and press on. Return to joy and live the life God has for you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me press on and not get stuck in the past. Help me look forward to the life You have for me. Help me see Your love, mercy, grace and peace. Help me pursue You and all that You have for me. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
