“in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37). Is one of the scriptures this morning from my devotional. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/turning-point-ministries/id411468853
A little chuckle as I think once again, as I awoke this morning my thoughts were floating with the possibility of facing some of life’s challenges and possibly the life changing events that seem to loom over my head.
As I walked to the pantry to get a ginger snap cookie to have with my morning coffee…. The thought popped into my mind like a little sparkler in the dark ETERNITY! That’s what its about. Suddenly the path my mind was going towards was redirected to a sense of hope. No, it didn’t mean that I still had a sense of the “oh lord, what lies ahead thinking”. But God is so faithful to His word. As I opened up my devotional and read the words “in ALL these things we are more than conquerors….” How? “Through HIM who LOVE US”. Ahhh the soothing comfort of His presence as I read these words.
Hey, it’s really not about me. Ok, I live in this body, in the world, in these circumstances. But, the battle isn’t my battle. It is the Lords and I just happen to be in it, Because I’m here on earth. But It’s been won. I just have to choose what side I am on. I am on the Lords side! We (not just I) are more than conquerors.
Let me explain why eternity and thinking of it gives me such peace. Because I’ll be with my Savior, the one who came to earth to die. Yes, Jesus didn’t come to rule the earth, He came that we might have life and live it more abundantly. That doesn’t mean that this life … well, let me say it this way. To “Live” is Christ and to die is gain” Philippians 1:21. It is about this life but it’s about living this life to be with Christ in eternity. You know…. No more sorrow, no more tears. Eternity filled with being in the presence of pure love, peace and joy.
So, keeping that in mind. Knowing the battle of life has been already won and we are to live and breathe as “conquerors”, yes Winners! I can face another day. In fact I’m ready to lace up my roller skates.🙂
How lovely, the sky is showing signs of dawning with beautiful hues of pink streaking in the east.
How marvelous to know, that I know, that I know. This life is but a vapor in eternity and I am His child. He is my heavenly Father who has promised to never leave me nor forsake me. I CAN DO THIS. Keeping my focus on Trusting Him. And knowing He’s with me as I glide down the sidewalk today. He’ll be there if I fall and His Word will put me back up on my feet to keep on going. Because We are More Than Conquerors in life’s events.
