"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written:“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us."
Some people have certain things in their possession that they believe brings them luck or maybe helps them play a sport better. Whatever it is, they have this secret fear of losing it and never getting it back. A harbored fear is tough to live with. We have them with fears of death, losing touch with our kids, financial losses, to fear of losing everything we have grown comfortable and accustomed to. One absolute sure thing in life remains: 'We can never be separated from the thing that strengthens and holds us together.' His love says that whatever is thrown our way, you can never be separated from Him and His love for you.
We may not feel victorious when we are in distress or in a disaster in life; but being a conqueror doesn't mean you feel like a winner through the fight. It does mean that you are on the best team, the greatest army that has never lost, and never will! Approach your darkest valley with confidence knowing you can't ever lose when you abide in Him and His love abides in you.
You are more than a Conqueror!!!
