TOPIC: MORE THAN A CONQUEROR
Fire Scripture: Romans 8:35 – 39
Life is a battle and not just a preparation for battle. Job 14:1 says, “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.” Life is also a problem solving process; as you solve one, another battle emerges. As a believer, the moment you declare Jesus Christ as your Lord and Personal Saviour, you have unconsciously drawn a battle line between you and the devil.
The battle of life does not have regard for any human status. Christians are not exempted from it. The truth is that there is no victory without contest. For you to be a conqueror you must have been involved in one contest or the other and come out victorious. As it is in the physical, so it is in the spiritual. The devil and his hosts are always seeking to be in conﬂict with Christians.
Thank God for Jesus who has secured our victory on the cross at Calvary (Col. 2:14-15). A conqueror is an overcomer, a champion, a person that cannot be defeated by the enemy, a victorious person. On the contrary, whoever fails to be a conqueror will eventually become a victim of satanic defeat and always be at the mercy of the enemy. Such a person will end up being unable to fulﬁll his divine purpose. That will not be your portion, in Jesus’ name.
Having established all these, how can one be more than a conqueror? You must confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Saviour. You must turn away from your wicked ways. You must face the battle of life with certainty, with assurance that you are a winner! This is because in Christ you are assured of your victory before embarking on the battle. He who is more than a conqueror smiles at the storm because Christ is in the vessel.
David demonstrated this before Goliath, he declared himself a winner before the battle started (I Sam 17). Remember that He also ﬁghts on behalf of His children. All through the Old Testament, God proved Himself as the Man of War.
The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is our ticket to victory over satan and his cohorts. As a true believer in Christ, you are an overcomer already through Jesus Christ who loved you and died for you.
Romans 8:37 – Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
In Christ lies my victory
The Lord will give you the power to overcome, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN Conquerors and overcomers now are we
1. Conquerors and overcomers now are we,
Thro’ the precious blood of Christ we’ve victory,
If the Lord be for us, we can never fail:
Nothing ‘gainst his mighty pow’r can e’er prevail.
Conquerors are we,thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood;
God will give us victorythro’ the blood, thro’ the blood,
Thro’ the Lamb for sinners slain,
Yet who lives and reigns again,
More than conquerors are we.
More than conquerors are we.
2. In the name of Israel’s God we’ll onward press,
Overcoming sin and all unrighteousness;
Not to us, but unto him the praise shall be
For salvation and for blood bought victory
1. My glory shall not sink, in the name of Jesus.
2. Satanic powers assigned to harvest my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
3. Battles of life shall not overcome me, in the name of Jesus.
4. Satanic invasion against me and my family, scatter by fire, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every door opened for the enemy to invade me, be closed now, in the name of Jesus.
6. Battles at the edge of my breakthroughs, die, in the name of Jesus.
7. I have started well; I shall finish well, in the name of Jesus.
