Winners

cb devo dec 31“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Romans 8:37 (KJV)

 A conqueror is One who conquers, gains victory, subdues and brings into subjection or possession, by force or by influence. The man who defeats his antagonist in combat is a conqueror, as is the general or admiral who defeats his enemy. In our Christian walk, we have spiritual warfare. The enemy is a defeated foe (1 John 4:4). Simply because we are of God, we are overcomers. God has given us the power and tools to win. As we learn to use the Word of God effectively, we become victorious and more than conquerors – cutting through every defense the enemy hurls (Psalm 119:105, John 17:17 & Luke 11:28).

 Here are verses we can use with our sword to defeat the enemy:

 1.     No more condemnation (Romans 8:1).  When the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, we must repent. When we do, we will no longer be condemned. The enemy wants to keep us condemned when we don’t confess sin or keep us feeling guilty if we allow our feelings to consume us. This is why we must know scripture. We must be a skillful warrior.

2.     God will give us peace in testings and trials, and we can remain with good cheer because God has overcome the world (John 16:33). If we believe and receive this promise, we will defeat the enemy and avoid feeling confused and miserable.

3.     Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the Devil, your great enemy. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for some victims to devour. (I Peter 5:8) Be prayerful and discerning. If you remain in God’s Word, You will not be a victim he can devour. You can defeat him with God’s Word.

 “Lord, thank You for Your Sword. Thank You that we are more than conquerors. Thank You that You train my hands for war and my fingers for battle (Psalm 144:1).”

 For His Glory
