“In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” – Romans 8:37
I actually received this daily devotional yesterday from Joel and Victoria Osteen, and thought I’d share. Most of us have been in a place where we felt like giving up, throwing in the towel, or hiding under a rock. It’s important to remember “We are More Than Conquerors“! Note, the scripture says, More Than Conquerors. You are one, who does More Than overcome, More Than take possession by force. You are one who can do More Than defeat your enemy and prevail! This isn’t made up….this is what God has already called you to be! You are NOT defeated! You are More Than A Conqueror!
In scripture, Paul went through hard times. How did he come through? He wasn’t complaining, living in self-pity or despair. No, he shook off that defeated mindset and chose to have a vision of victory. This is what we have to do, too!
Remember, you’re not a weakling. You’re not lacking. The most powerful force in the universe is breathing in your direction. Every morning you need to remind yourself, “I am ready for and equal to anything that comes my way. I am full of can-do power.”
Listen, that sickness is no match for you. That relationship issue is not going to keep you from your destiny. The loss of that loved one did not stop God’s plan for your life. Don’t let it overwhelm you. You can handle it. You’ve been armed with strength! Keep a victor’s mentality because a victor’s mentality becomes a victor’s reality!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for the victory that overcomes the world — faith in Jesus Christ. Today I choose to trust You. I stand on Your promises and choose to live with a victor’s mentality in Jesus’ name! Amen.
