But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:37-39
In our personal struggle with sin and our own flesh, there is victory that awaits the Christian. Its not found in ourselves, but in the transforming power of God, the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. On top of that, we have the greatest expression of love – the sacrificial life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. All this adds up to overwhelming victory.
Have I appropriated the forgiveness of Christ and allowed God’s Holy Spirit to lead and guide me on a daily basis? Yes! Oh what a joy it is to be free in Christ.
God, I am experiencing in You, victory upon victory. You know my sin and shortcomings, yet You forgive and cleanse and set me upon the right path. You make ways for reconciliation and fellowship. Oh how marvelous You are and the how sweet the victory I have in Christ.
