More Than Conquerors

The Book of Genesis, also called the book of beginnings tells us the story of creation and is fast paced and action packed! The first four words, “In the beginning, God” tell us that God is the origin of all that is. The rest of the verse tells us that God created the heavens and the earth. God was and is before all things. He fashioned and formed the heavens and the earth out of nothing, or “ex nihilo.”
In Hebrews 11:3, the Amplified Bibles tells us “By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible.” In Genesis 1:2, the Bible says the “earth was without form and an empty waste and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep.”
Does this strike a chord with you? How many times have you felt yourself being pulled into the depths of darkness? Perhaps some of you are depressed over circumstances in your life. You lost your job and don’t know how you’re going to make it, and you’re worried because you have young children who depend on you. Maybe some of you have recently lost a loved one to cancer or your spouse has left you with a pile of bills. Whatever your situation may be, remember that the Bible says that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
The Bible tells us the Spirit of God was hovering over the earth and it was an “empty waste, without form, and darkness was upon the face of the great deep” [Gen 1:2]. But look at Gen 1:3: “God said, Let there be light, and there was light.” We see that God illuminated the empty waste, the lifeless void, and the darkness by speaking His word over it. That is why it is important for us as believers to speak God’s word over our situations. No matter how dark things appear, no matter how depressed and downtrodden we get, God will reach down and bring us out of the pit of despair into the light of His unconditional love. All we have to do is put our trust in God’s word, and declare: “I will not give up, I will not give in, I will not falter, I will not fail, I will not feel sorry for myself because I know that God has a plan for my life.”
God created the heavens and the earth by breathing His spirit into them. He turned the darkness into light, and He will do the same for us. Even though, things look bleak now, the Bible assures us that this is all part of God’s plan to grow us spiritually and to bring us into a closer relationship with Him.
Jesus told us we would experience troubles in this life. In fact, He said to expect it! He told his disciples that they would be ridiculed, vilified, and even put to death. We as believers all have our crosses to bear: a bad medical report, a broken marriage, bills we cannot pay, but Jesus told us to rejoice in our sufferings because He has overcome the world! We have already won the battle because Jesus has made our enemy (Satan) His footstool. Rejoice! Jesus has overcome the world! By believing the word of God and trusting in Jesus to be our Lord and Savior, we are more than conquerors through Christ who strengthens us.
Jesus told us if we are to become His disciples, we are to pick up our cross and follow Him daily. But we do not have to bear our burdens alone. Jesus said to take His yoke upon us because the burden is light, it is peaceful and will grant us everlasting joy! His yoke is the yoke of liberation, not bondage. Bring your burdens and lay them at the feet of Jesus.
Give your troubles to God. Do not try to live this life and solve your problems on your own. You are not strong enough. Exchange your burdens for the resurrection power that you have as a believer in Christ, and behold, you have already overcome the world!
Thanks be to God, and our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
