SUNDAY 3RD JUNE 2018 MORNING PRAYER DEVOTION
SCRIPTURE READING:- ROMANS 8:26-39
TOPIC:- YOU ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS 
TEXT:- ROMANS 8:37
II. So then, note next, the abundant victory of love. Mark how the Apostle, in his lofty and enthusiastic way, is not content here with simply saying that he and his fellows conquer. It would be a poor thing, he seems to think, if the balance barely inclined to our side, if the victory were but just won by a hair’s breadth and triumph were snatched, as it were, out of the very jaws of defeat.
There must be something more than that to correspond to the power of the victorious Christ that is in us. And so, he says, we very abundantly conquer; we not only hinder these things which he has been enumerating from doing that which it is their aim apparently to do, but we actually convert them into helpers or allies.
The ‘more than conquerors’ seems to mean, if there is any definite idea to be attached to it, the conversion of the enemy conquered into a friend and a helper. And so all afflictions and trials rightly borne, and therefore overcome, make a man stronger, and bring him nearer to Jesus Christ.
Everything that makes me feel more thrillingly in my inmost heart the verity and the sweetness of the love of Jesus Christ as my very own, is conquered by me and compelled to subserve my highest good, and everything which slips a film between me and Him, which obscures the light of His face to me, which makes me less desirous of, and less sure of, and less happy in, and less satisfied with, His love, is an enemy that has conquered me.
And all these evils as the world calls them, and as our bleeding hearts have often felt them to be, are converted into allies and friends when they drive us to Christ, and keep us close to Him, in the conscious possession of His sweet and changeless love.
That is the victory, and the only victory. Has the world helped me to lay hold of Christ? Jesus Christ as my very own, is conquered by me and compelled to subserve my highest good, and everything which slips a film between me and Him.
1. I command, no weapon fashion against me shall prospered, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I will be successful in this life for I’m more than conqueror, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Holy Ghost fire, empower me to fight all the battle confronting me and to win, in the name of Jesus Christ.
