God does not shelter us from the difficulties of life, because we need them for our spiritual
growth. In Romans 8:28 God assures us that the difficulties of life are working for us and not
against us.
God permits trials to come that we might use them for our good and His glory. We endure trials
for His sake, and since we do, do you think that He will desert us? Of course not! Instead, He is
closer to us when we go through the difficulties of life.
Furthermore, He gives us the power to conquer. We are “more than conquerors,” literally, “we
are super conquerors” through Jesus Christ! He gives us victory and more victory! We need not
fear life or death, things present or things to come, because Jesus Christ loves us and gives us the
victory.
This is not a promise with conditions attached: “If you do this, God will do that.” This security in
Christ is an established feet, and we claim it for ourselves because we are in Christ. Nothing can
separate you from His love! Believe it—and rejoice in it!
Scripture for meditation: “In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who
loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life… nor powers, nor things present, nor
things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the
love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:37-39).
Also: Romans 8:28-36; Hebrews 4:15-16.
Action assignment: Thank God for His great love and for the fact that nothing can separate you
from his love. Ask Him to enable you to be “more than a conqueror” in the day ahead.
