Romans 8:37 says “we are more than Conquerors!” The word used here means literally to over-conquer, and we do this by: One, coming out of troubles stronger than when they first threatened us. And two, by remembering that our ultimate reward will far surpass whatever earthly and temporal loss we may suffer. He Paul assures the readers that he is not teaching us anything that he is not already convinced of (“I am persuaded”). It is because we are embraced by the eternal and unchanging love of God that we can be content to stand in the trials of today, knowing as Paul, that although all may forsake me, Jesus never will. Perhaps you have trouble understanding the Love of God. If so, I challenge you to meditate upon Romans 8:8:31-39, and begin to ponder the wonder and majesty of a God who loves us so. In the words of George Matheson the great Hymn writer:
“O love that will not let me go,
I rest my weary soul in Thee
I give Thee back the life I owe,
That in Thine ocean depths its flow
May richer fuller be.”
