More Than What?

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.Romans 8:37

As my tween and I were answering questions from her reader, one question stuck. Basically, the question asked what made the woman's cheerfulness especially remarkable? Answer: Because she was blind.

This began an interesting conversation of how this woman represents a "more than a conqueror."

What makes her more than a conqueror?

Well let's see. What makes us more than conquerors?

Is is that we are peace seekers and peace makers?

Or is that we can love our enemies?

NOPE. This makes us Spirit led children of God. We are not more than conquerors because we walk in the Spirit and not according to the flesh (although, we must conquer our flesh in Jesus' name).

What makes us more than conquerors is when we can face difficulties and tribulations, persecutions and insurmountable hardships and overcome through HIM-Jesus. When we can face death and sickness and loss and still shout, "I know my Redeemer LIVES!" because we have His Word, which is above death, sickness, and loss. We can walk out of it all (death, sickness, loss or whatever) and still proclaim His goodness and faithfulness. Because when we walk in the victory given to us at Calvary through HIM-Jesus, well then, we are more than conquerors!

  1. Amen! Very edifying post! It's amazing that the Word says "We are more than conquerors", not only conquerors! Halelujah! The word conqueror literally means: defeater. We all know that we were defeated, however Jesus Christ defeated satan, death, sickness, unforgiveness, pain, poor (monetary & spirit),etc... in the cross at Calvary. Glory to God!!! That is more than enough reason to help us shout Halelujah through whatever comes our way!!! Help us Jesus to give you the praise, glory and honor through any circumstance... To You be the Glory my Lord!
