Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him Who loved us. — Romans 8:37 (AMPC)
As Christians, we often hear people quote Romans 8:37, which says we are more than conquerors in Christ. For years, I have pondered what being “more than a conqueror” actually means.
I’m sure others have different interpretations, but I’ve come to the conclusion that being more than a conqueror means you have such confidence that no matter what comes up in your life, you know that through Christ you can handle it. You know before you’re ever faced with a problem that you’re going to have victory over it. You believe you can do whatever you need to do in life. Therefore, you don’t dread things, you don’t fear the unknown, and you don’t live in anxiety about what’s going to happen. It doesn’t really matter what the specifics of each situation are, you know you will be victorious through Christ.
What an amazing gift to be able live in that kind of confidence! I want to encourage you to remind yourself of this truth today:
I am more than a conqueror through Christ.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for making a way for me to live in the confidence that I am more than a conqueror because of You. Please help me accept and walk in that confidence more and more each day. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
