Two boxers, one $5 billion dollar prize, winner takes it all, one winner collects the money. The conqueror goes home and hands it over to his wife, she is more than a conqueror because she goes out to spend it!
Having spent time wondering about every facet of life’s difficulty the Apostle is persuaded that nothing can separate us from the love of God.
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8 v 37-39)
Jesus Christ has defeated any defeat in your life. Today don’t feel defeated in your heart or speak defeat from your mouth when Christ has won!
Jesus quoted a verse from a battle Psalm to show how the Messiah was greater than King David; Peter quoted the same verse at Pentecost to show the deity of Jesus; the Apostle Paul carried this verse in his heart and used it in 1 Corinthians to explain the power and rule of Jesus; the writer of Hebrews uses is to show Jesus is superior to any angel. The verse?
“The Lord says to my lord: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.” (Psalm 110:1)
Jesus Christ is the battle king of and for your life!
We need to rest as more than conquerors today. Resting in the place of authority and position of strength. Every illness, every struggle and every difficult circumstance He will control and bring under your feet. Like a conqueror with his feet on the neck of his enemy so will Christ do for you. It will happen.
It won’t be your effort or your strategy but it will be you sitting in the authority and power of Christ, trusting Him to work and fight for you.”
It does not mean you won’t suffer. But every weapon that comes against you is not only defeated by Christ but is made to serve the eternal purposes of Christ for your life. Ultimately God’s love always wins.
