More Than a Conqueror

Have you ever felt defeated?

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.

A Poem from my blog
God Bless

Faith,Love,Power and Might
Jesus,The Way,The Truth, and The Light
Giving us all the power to live,The New Creation Life
Faith,Love and The Blood
Power, Authority and The Holy Spirits Flood
Oh how wonderful is the love of Christ
A love that produces power and might.
Jesus, Jesus, oh the power in that name
Every knee must bow, every opposing force, becomes lame
When the enemy comes in like a flood
His attack is dried up, by The name, and The Blood
Praise the name of Jesus, He is worthy
Praise Him until your eyes see the victory
Praise Him when the night seems long
Praise Him until those feeble limbs are strong
Praise Him for The Blood He shed
Praise Him and declare, all the works of sin, to be dead!
It can't be expressed with words alone
So, with The Blood, and with praise, approach His Throne
Stand in the presence of The Lamb that was slain
And in the presence of The Father who will strengthen you again
Praise Him at His throne of glory and grace
There He will give an abundance to win this race
Jesus,Jesus,Jesus...Thank You
Jesus,Jesus,Jesus...Thank You
