Today's Verse: Romans 8:35-37 (KJV)

Saturday, February 17, 2018

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
— Romans 8:35-37 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Conquerors! We win!! When you open up the final book of the Bible, Revelation, that is the message — Christians win because Jesus is the one true conqueror. No matter how the battle is going for you right now, remember that in the end, we win!

My Prayer...

El Shaddai, God Almighty, thank you for securing the ultimate victory for me by raising Jesus from the dead. I know he is coming with victory on the day you have determined, but I pray that I may live victoriously for you until that day. Through Jesus my conquering King I pray. Amen.
