Is Jesus your conquering warrior, your hero, and your champion? He has overcome every enemy that would seek to harm us, making Christ the absolute victor over darkness. “And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” Col 2:15 Now more than ever we need increasing strength and a firm resolve to stand against the evil forces that threaten our personal lives, our country, and our world. Christ has the power to subdue the principalities and forces who try to destroy us. A godly defense begins with just one surrendered believer. We must willingly place our lives under his mighty protection, instruction, and care. “Yet the Lord still waits for you to come to him, so he can show you his love, he will conquer you to bless you.” Is 30:18
Do we know Jesus as the Overcoming One? His power is standing by to invade our lives. He is waiting for us to raise his flag of ownership, showing that we are putting every area, one at a time under his control. Never, never give up, even if it has been years since you have gotten victory in a particular area! Romans 8:37 gives us a compelling reason to return once again to God. “…overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us enough to die for us.” That victory must not be wasted in our lives. Ask God to conquer you in order to bless you. “…for all God gives to his son Jesus is now ours too.” Rom 8:17 His desire is clear. His hearts longing is to draw you to Him. Will you come? “Since he did not spare even his own Son for us but gave him up for us all, won’t he also surely give us everything else?” Rom 8:32 That everything includes victory over sin, the peace of Christ, an abiding inner work of happiness and contentment, and the ability to trust God for your future.
Today do not sell yourselves short, victory is coming! Is it over that next hill? How can we possibly settle for less than what God has purchased for us? We will not cheapen his sacrifice. Ask God for the trust you need for a believing heart, letting him conquer you till you know the feel of victory.
