S.W.A.P. Ministries has been sharing “31 Days of Power” during the month of January. Each day they share a verse about a different “power” we receive through God. I have been sharing these on the Many Strands page as an avenue for a “Moment with God” in your day. We are on day 12 and I felt God wanted more from me today than just reading that one verse…I felt Him telling me to read all of Romans 8 this morning.
I was obedient to His call on my life and I did the reading. I am so glad that I did and I don’t want you to miss out on the great gifts He has given us through His words in Romans 8. Here is the challenge that I posted on the Many Strands page this morning…I pray that you get out your Bibles today and accept this challenge, this is a powerful chapter in God’s word.
Moments with God
31 Days of Power
Power to Conquer
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
In the NKJV version of the verse we are sharing this morning it starts out with the words…”Yet in all these things…”, doesn’t it sound like we are reading the end of what we have the power to conquer? I feel like there is a laundry list of things that we can overcome in the words that come before verse 37.
I know that you know what I am going to ask you to do today…yep, read all of Romans 8. Understand the context of this verse to fully grasp the “power” that is yours to “conquer” through Christ.
Do me a favor…let me know what verse or verses spoke to you through this reading. If you are keeping a prayer journal for 2013 write those verses down in your journal and remind yourself of how you are going to move forward with those verses using the “power to conquer.”
