More than Conquerors

Romans 8:37 (NIV)

37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us

This is what God desires of each of His children.  He wants us to be “more than conquerors,” turning storm clouds into chariots of victory.  It is obvious when an army becomes “more than conquerors,”  for drives its enemies from the battlefield and confiscates their food and supplies.  This is exactly what this Scripture passage means.  There are spoils to be taken!

Dear believers, after experiencing the terrible valley of suffering, did you depart with the spoils?  When you were struck with an injury and you thought you had lost everything, did you trust in God to the point that you came out richer than you were before?  Being “more than [a] conqueror: means taking the spoils from the enemy and appropriating them for yourself.  What your enemy had planned to use for your defeat, you can confiscate for your own use.
