Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
God sees everyone who is born again as more than a conqueror because of what Christ has done. This simply means we are able to overcome all things. One who is just a conqueror may be able to overcome some things, but those who are more than conquerors are able to overcome any challenge they may face. Why then do many believers seem to be overcome instead of overcoming in areas of their life?
Notice it says we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. One translation of this verse says we overcome all things through His love. You see a key to overcoming in life is not just knowing God loves you, but believing in the love He has for you. There is a difference. In 1 John 4:16, John said that he knew and BELIEVED in the love God has for him. To know God loves you is head knowledge, but to believe God loves you is revelation of this truth in you heart. This word believe means to trust in obtaining or doing something.
If we believe God truly loves us in our hearts we will have absolute trust in His Word, knowing every promise is yes and amen. Many do not walk in the surpassing victory they have in Christ because they lack faith in how much God loves them. If you believe He loves you, God’s perfect love casts out all fear. You will never question God nor doubt His Word when you have faith in His love for you. He proved His love on the cross. Know and believe in His love for you, as you are more than a conqueror.
