We Are More Than Conquerors

You and I matter to God. You and I matter to him so much He sent His Son {Christ Jesus} to die for us on the cross.

Something special will happen when we place our trust and faith in Christ Jesus {Our Lord and our Friend}.

We are not just people who live life being tossed around by the fortunes and misfortunes of life anymore.  Romans 8 verse 31 to 39 {Message Bible].

“So what do you think? with God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing Himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else He wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for – us who was raised to life for us! _ is in the presence of God at this moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in scripture;”

“They kill us in cold blood because they hate you.  We’re sitting ducks, they pick us off one by one.”

” None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing – nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable – absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.”

You see as we live each day, we are on our journey through life with Our Lord and Our Friend. We are on a journey of discovery. Discovering more and more about Him every day.

We are walking in a new way of living – we now have a destiny.  We have a new self, we have been born again restored with our spirit controlling our soul and body. We lose the self and the self importance and we learn to faithfully trust Our Lord and Our Friend. We become more than people just hanging on through the trails and tribulations that come our way. we become over comers and grow through the trails and tribulations of life, as the Spirit of God brings life to every part of our being.

I remember singing a song when I was teaching Children’s Church something like this; “With Christ in my vessel we can smile at the storm, as we go sailing home {Our eternal destiny}.”

We are never alone once we ask Christ Jesus to become Our Lord and Our friend. And having reliance on the fact that we are not alone, we develop a Godly confidence. A confidence that God knew what He was doing when He made us. A confidence that God know what He is doing as He leads us day by day to be apart of His eternal plan.

With Christ in your vessel, we can smile at the storm, because we are more than conquerors, through Him {Our Lord and Our Friend} who loves us.

God Bless.
