More Than Conquerors

grenepages_Olufemi Babalola FRESH BREAD_More Than Conquerors

Indeed, God does not see as man sees. God's way of evaluating a situation is different from the way a man judges things.

Little wonder, it was prophesied of Jesus "He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears; but with righteousness He shall judge the poor." (Isaiah 11:3-4 NKJV).

In the school of faith, our eyes are useless. We walk by faith not by sight. This is why we must know God's perspective about a situation before we draw our conclusion; else, we may find ourselves resisting God's counsel.

We must actively seek God's truth about our so-called reality because what is real to us is a mirage under the illuminating light of God's word.

A thing may be factual here but over there, in the presence of God, it is virtual. It does not exist. While not denying your condition you should find out how God defines it. What is God's verdict about it?

What will you say about Joseph who was a houseboy in Potiphar’s house and later the head of prisoners, yet God said he was a prosperous man?

Prosperity in our context is defined in terms of how much you have in your bank account or you are worth. It is folks like Mark Zukernberg, Bill Gates, Aliko Dangote and Jeff Bezoz that comes to mind when we talk of wealth or prosperity today, but here was God calling a prisoner a prosperous man. God was defining him by his end not his status.

This is why you should not wait for physical manifestations before you believe what God has said concerning you. What happens in the physical has nothing to do with what God has done for you. Even if you feel pain all over your body right now, it does not change the fact that He bore your infirmities on the cross and by His stripes, you have been healed.

This was why Paul concluded there is nothing in heaven or on earth potent enough to drive a wedge between him and the love of God in Christ Jesus. He came to this understanding that his trials and predicaments have nothing to do with what God has done for Him.

No wonder he confidently declared in Romans 8:37, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”

What I want you to take note is the phrase, "in all these things.” In other words, Paul was as good as a victor while he was still a victim. While he was still being beaten by the trials and troubles of life, he declared that he was not just a victor; he was more than a victor.

Perhaps, there are also "all these things" in your life right now. May be you have been grappling with a lot of trials and troubles. Maybe nothing is working or nothing seems to be giving you joy. Maybe your life can be described with these words, "troubled on every side" (2Corinthians 4:8). This is what God's word says about you,

Yet in all these things you are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

Romans 8:37 NKJV

Friend, if you are not a victor in your trials, you are not a victor outside of them. Real winners won before they won. They fight as victors not victims. They fight knowing they already won.

This is why your disposition in the season of your trials is critical to your victory. You must be careful of what you say and do. You must learn to say and act what God is saying concerning you even though you do not feel so or see so.

If you wait until you begin to feel so before you say so and act so, you may never feel so. Saying and acting so even when you do not feel so releases forces that ignites the feelings that you desire.

Our words commands the power required to create the feelings that we need. Words have creative powers. It is by the word the world was created. People go to comedy shows just to hear words that will make them feel funny. A depressed soul can enter such shows and after listening to few words get excited again. He did not feel so in the beginning but he heard some words that created the feelings that he needs.

How much more, when empowering words flow out of our own mouth? Tony Ribbons in his book, Awaken the Giant Within, said, "The words you habitually choose affect how you communicate with yourself and therefore your experience."

This is why the Bible said, "Let the weak say, I am strong" (Joel 3:10 KJV). God knows that if the weak continue to declare strength, he automatically receives strength. The problem with the weak is that he finds it difficult to say he is strong while he feels weak. He is waiting for when he begins to feel strong before he says so.

The pathway to create the experience that you want in your life is to begin to use the vocabulary of that kind of life while you are still “in all these things.” Declare health even when you are sick. Declare that you are holy and righteous even though you are often tempted. Speak strength even when you feel weak. Declare prosperity even when you are poor and in debt. Declare fruitfulness even when you have no child yet. Speak about your house though you now rent or scoot. Be like God who calls those things, which be not as though they were.

Every aspect of your life has an ear and they will do your bidding. They will respond to the command that you give them. Your blood, nerves, kidney, womb, finances, etc. have ears. Give them the command. Tell them what to do and say it until they respond.

Do not say I believe in my heart; say it with your mouth. Faith is incomplete with the belief in the heart. This is why most people who believe in the heart do not experience what they believe.

If you indeed believe it then say it. What we say is what completes the faith in our hearts. "For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Confession has to be made in order to experience salvation. We must confess it. If you cannot confess it, then you do not believe it.

It is time to release the force of faith through the confessions of your mouth. Break the chains of sickness, debt, lack, poverty, etc. through the power of the words that flows from your mouth.

Remember Sarah. She used to be called Sarai but the day her name was changed to Sarah, the mother of nations, her dead womb began to respond. There was resurrection. Each time, Abraham called her Sarah, her hormones began to respond to motherhood until she conceived and gave birth to Isaac.

This is why I am saying again that you do not have to feel so before you say so. Say so even when you do not feel so. If you say so long enough, you will not only feel so, you will see so and even experience so. Let us declare it with Paul today despite our trials that, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”
