We are more than conquerors
through him who loved us.
It took me less than five minutes to write down the names of ten acquaintances who have faced difficult issues in the past year. You could jot down a similar list.
In a paragraph that will freeze your blood, the apostle Paul cataloged more than two dozen abuses that befell him (2 Cor 11:23–27).
And in his letter to the Romans, he cited seven things that were common to first-century Christians: trouble, hardship, persecution, famine, nakedness, danger, and sword—then added, “In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” In all these things!
Are you going through a rough patch? Hang on, for there is nothing that “will be able to separate [you] from the love of God” (Rom 8:39).
You are not alone.
Don’t ever forget that.
