— Romans 8:37
Are we really conquerors despite “trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword”? (Romans 8:35) Yes! That is the Father’s ultimate assurance to us through Christ Jesus and the indwelling Holy Spirit. Nothing can separate us from God’s love in Christ. The Evil One and his allies can kill our bodies, ruin our finances, wrack our physical being with pain, and seek to destroy our relationships. However, the Evil One cannot have our hearts when they are surrendered to Jesus. And when our hearts belong to the Lord, so does our future, and Satan cannot change our ultimate future with Jesus (Colossians 3:1-4). The empty tomb of Jesus assures us that our future with him is glorious, victorious, and unending.
Give me eyes to see, O God, and a heart to believe that Jesus’ victory over death is my victory, too! I don’t want to be derailed from my hope, faith, and love by life’s difficulties. Instead, I want to be a living testimony to your power, victory, and grace. In Jesus’ name and for his glory, I live and pray. Amen.
