More Than Conquerors?


   “In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37 – KJ).

   For several years, I’ve been perplexed by Romans 8:37 and I’ve asked the Lord about it many times. “Lord, how is it possible to be ‘more than conquerors’? I mean, nothing is greater than a conqueror. Conquerors achieve victory in all things—what else is there to gain after victory? How then can we be greater?” Recently, the Lord answered my question and that revelation has made a total shift in my thinking. Here’s what He showed me:

“In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

   A Conqueror gains victory over present conditions. An Overcomer brings victory to past circumstances.

   A Conqueror battles to win victory over others. An Overcomer battles to win victory over himself.

   A Conqueror battles with strength. An Overcomer battles with faith.

   A Conqueror takes territory. An Overcomer restores territory.

   A Conqueror defeats people. An Overcomer redeems people.

   A Conqueror requires submission. An Overcomer brings freedom.

   A Conqueror condemns the guilty. An Overcomer forgives the guilty.

   A Conqueror restrains violence. An Overcomer establishes peace.

   A Conqueror legislates righteousness. An Overcomer teaches wisdom.

   A Conqueror wounds in warfare. An Overcomer heals as warfare.

   A Conqueror battles in the physical realm against flesh and blood. An Overcomer battles in the Spirit against rulers, principalities and powers, and spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

   A Conqueror battles for an earthly kingdom. An Overcomer battles for an eternal kingdom.

   A Conqueror is good. An Overcomer is greater.

   We are more than Conquerors.
