We Are More Than Conquerors
1 John 3:1…, What manner of love the Father hath
bestowed upon us, that we should be called sons of God!
And that’s what we are, sons and daughters; children of God!
Wrought, fashioned, formed, created
from his dirt, his dust, his murky sod.
Bound, confined, constrained, and limited
to the dictate of his iron yet merciful rod.
Isaiah 54:11&14…, O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest,
and not comforted…, In righteousness shalt thou be
established, thou shalt be far from oppression, for thou
shalt not fear and from terror;
for it shalt not come near thee.
Tempest, terror, just what is that?
It’s the disturbances, the blow-ups
anything that upsets and unsettles
you, when you hear the news.
It’s the sorrow, the crying, the sicknesses
anything that makes you feel life’s blues.
It’s the troubles, the challenges, the problems
anything that makes you just want to get
engrossed in the booze.
It’s the violence, the abuse, the death
anything making you want to just get caught up
in that soothing and eternal-like snooze.
It’s the hurt, the rejection, the disrespect
anything that makes you want to get on a boat
and take a never ending cruise.
Romans 8:37…, In all these things we are more than
conquerors through him that loved us.
Before you take yet another fall,
remember that we are more than conquerors y’all
Let’s examine that! Conquer:
To be successful in all that we do
To prevail when everything seems against you.
To outdo those who speak evil of your every deed
To put under subjection the evil one and his motley seed.
We can have complete control with little fuss
We can master the blues
instead of letting the blues master us.
We can reverse the cycle of:
Hard life, failure, no purpose, sickness, and eternal death
Instead of giving illicit sex permission to comfort you or
Giving drugs a never ending hug,
Or even succumbing to the blues in booze…,
Instead of waddling in agony,
self-pity, and despair, GET UP,
Let Jesus be the reason for your dance
Shout Hallelujah til the problems are raised
Move your mind and your feet in a spiritual prance
Instead of crying or giving up, give Jesus praise!
It’s just that simple:
Open the book, read it!
You will be surprised at what you find in there.
Open it, read it, eat it, if you dare.
There is love and joy,
There is comfort and victory,
There is understanding and virtue,
There is real peace – in the mighty name of Jesus!
All you have to do is find out who he really is
and what you need to do to be his.
Isaiah 61:1-3…, The spirit of the Lord God
is upon me because he anointed me
to preach good tidings unto the meek.
He hath sent me to bind up the broken
Hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and
The opening of the prision to them that are bound,
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all that mourn:
To appoint unto them that mourn in zion
To give unto them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness:
That they might be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord,
that he might be glorified. And
Psalms 47: 6-7…, Sing praised to God: sing praises ,
Sing praises unto Our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth:
Now here’s the clencher: Don’t just read to understand
the beginning, the middle or the end.
We gotta read all the word that God did send.
We gotta have eyes that see and ears that hear, and a vessel,
a vessel that walks and talks in the obedience of His word,
that accepts the things we have been told.
That humbly swallows the pill of persecution from the world
especially family, friends, and loved ones
just because you stand in the Lord bold.
It may occasionally feel as though Jesus has forgotten us, hang in there, He has not.
Just don’t neglect to keep our actions and prays in the pot.
He will answer those who diligently seek him.
In the meantime, thank him, raise your hands and your voice and give him praise!
We are more than conquers
through him that gave his life for us.
We are more than conquerors with little fuss.
It’s just that simple: all we have to do
is submit ourselves when Jesus makes the call,
we are more than conquerors y’all!
we are more than conquerors.
