These past few days, I have felt incredibly defeated. Defeated because of circumstances, some of which I can control and some of which are far beyond my control. Nevertheless, defeat can paralyze you.
However, today I was reminded of the Truth.
"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 8:37-39
How often I forget that I am more than a conqueror. In other words, I have overwhelming victory. I am not defeated, not struck down, and not destroyed.
If you're feeling defeated, remember you are more than a conqueror through Christ.
