More Than a Conqueror

April 3, 2008

Please have a look at my new blog: www.sucthings.ca

“In all these things [trouble, hardship, persecution, famine, nakedness, famine and sword] we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”

Romans 8:37[35]

I don’t know about famine, nakedness or persecution in my life, but how about meltdowns for not having a playdate, getting three children to school on time and staying on top of the laundry? My kids have had a lot of flus in the last month and I have found myself feeling frustrated, overwhelmed and drained. I had a good chuckle at a post in the Chicken blog, along similar lines.

God says that we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. What does it mean to be a conqueror? I started to google female warriors (and a lot of very interesting images came up, I tell you!) One female warrior that I love is Eowyn from Lord of the Rings; her zest, courage and fighting spirit.

Sometimes it feels like we are in a vicious battle. Her expression above reminds me of how I felt just this morning, trying to get three kids ready for school, resorting to nagging and debating with an also emotional three-and-a-half year old.

It is good to remind ourselves that there really is no battle. Jesus has the victory and we are victors with him. We can rest confidently in His power and love. No matter our feelings, actions and irritations, God is on our side! Of course a little extra sleep, never hurts either. There. I feel better already just writing this post.

I want to celebrate Easter with this sermon, That’s My King, by Dr. S. M. Lockridge. I first heard it at a Christian camp this last summer and I loved it. I wanted to learn more about S.M. Lockridge, but I couldn’t find a lot on the internet about him. I get so inspired by passionate preachers who know and love the Lord.

It’s a powerful seven minutes long. Enjoy and Happy Easter!
