Romans 8:37 (KJV)
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
:- more than conquer.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.
It feels kinda strange to be preaching on this Passage of Scripture today as I do not "FEEL" like "more than a conqueror"!!!!
I woke up, (Praise the Living God), feeling bland and listless and as the day has continued, I have been battling a case of the blues.
I take my platform VERY seriously and KNOW I owe my best to you who read these and PRAY for and support this ministry.
What is "MORE than conquerors?"
My first thought is about the good ole USA.
Even when we have defeated our enemies on the battlefields, we were always THERE to help our vanquished foes rebuild their war-torn lands and heal their wounded!!!
Could it be that we took seriously the Words of our Lord and Savior:
Matthew 5:44-46 (KJV)
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
I was spoken to to by the Lord in my daily PERSONAL Scripture reading:
1 Peter 3:7 (KJV)
Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with
according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
God ALWAYS demands loving CARE of "the weaker vessel!"
More than conquerors" do NOT "spike the football" in celebration of their victories!!
It was Rudyard Kipling who wrote:
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;"
WE must always remember that in THIS life, when we win it is because of GOD!
Romans 8:31 (KJV)
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
2 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)
14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
Ephesians 2:9-10 (KJV)
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
It stands to reason that WE are "MORE than conquerors" because:
James 1:17 (KJV)
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
1 Corinthians 4:7 (KJV)
7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?
We are "MORE than conquerors" even when we do not "FEEL"like conquerors!!!
In the Campus Crusade booklet the slogan appears as a train:
The locomotive is "fact."
The coal car is "faith."
The caboose is "feeling."
The explanation reads: "The train will run with or without the caboose.
However, it would be futile to attempt to pull the train by the caboose."
The FACT /locomotive is:
Romans 8:31 (KJV)
What shall we then say to these things? If God
for us, who
The FAITH/coal car is:
Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)
But without faith
impossible to please
: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and
he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
In fact, I cannot even think of any Scriptural teaching on FEELING/caboose!
The FEELING caboose is just there!!??
TODAY, no matter how WE feel, we ARE "MORE than conquerors through Him that loved us!!!!"
Romans 8:37 (KJV)
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
AMEN AND AMEN!!!
GOD BLESS YOU
