“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8: 37-39 (NIV)
Every one of us at some point in our lives has doubts or fears. We say that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13) but we don’t always believe it. Trials and tribulations come into our lives, and we start to waiver in our faith. We stop reading the Bible, we stop living by scripture, we stop going to church. We think we can handle it all on our own.
What are we afraid of? That’s what poet, Kevin Perry, asks in his performance of “Fee Fi Fo Fum.” We all face giants, whether literally or figuratively, but “if God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31) No one and no thing.
Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). God will never give us more than we can handle, and he will always provide us with a way out (1 Corinthians 10:13). We can’t give up, we can’t lose hope, and we can’t allow the fear of man, or mere, earthly things to cloud our better judgement.
We are children of the Most High! We are more than conquerors! And no weapon formed against us shall prosper! (Psalm 82:6; Romans 8:37; Isaiah 54:17)
