In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. — Romans 8:37

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Are we really conquerors despite “trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword”? Yes! That is the ultimate Christian assurance. Nothing can separate us from God’s love in Christ. The Evil One and his allies can kill our bodies, ruin our finances, wrack our bodies with pain, and seek to destroy our relationships. However, the Evil One cannot have our hearts when they are surrendered to Jesus. And when our hearts belong to Jesus, so does our future! The empty tomb of Jesus assures us that our future with him is glorious, victorious, and unending.

My Prayer…

Give me eyes to see, O God, and a heart to believe that Jesus’ victory over death is my victory, too! I don’t want to be derailed from my hope, faith, and love by the difficulties of life. Instead, I want to be a living testimony to your power, victory, and grace. In Jesus’ name, and for his glory, I live and pray. Amen.
