Romans 8:37 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Romans 8:37

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 


Luke 1:37 – “For no word from God will ever fail.”


These are a couple of short verses, but there is so much power in these promises from the Lord!!! I always read the one in Romans wrong. I always looked at it like I had to conquer sins, situations, and stuff for Christ. But that’s not what it says. It says I can conquer them THROUGH Him and His love. The strength comes from His love, not from me. What a relief!!!


Which means the only way to overcome anything I’m facing is to have faith and trust Him and His love to get me through it. For so long, I thought I had to be tough for Christ, or fight battles for Him but not with Him!!! I was setting myself up for failure because the only one who can conquer this world and all it throws at us is the one who created it and died for it and then rose with our freedom in hand!!! Thank You, Jesus!


A conqueror isn’t just someone who barely makes it by but rather someone who dominates and thrives!!! So, this tells me if I keep Christ at the center, there isn’t a thing in this world that I can’t overcome or dominate! What a promise from the Lord!


We all know these verses, but do we believe them? Are we walking in reluctancy or expectancy? Do I expect to experience God’s goodness or do I only hope to? Do I expect to experience God’s love or merely hope to? Do I expect God to carry me through any valley or just hope He shows up? Not one word, promise, or prophecy from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21 will ever fail, change, or fall away!! In a world of shifting shadows, focus on the Son!!!


Be encouraged, Be a warrior, Be loving, Be bold, and most importantly, be more like Christ!!!


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!!
