Romans 8:37 (NKJV) Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
We are supposed to be more than conquerors in the midst of tribulation! It is when we are so convinced about the perfect love of God that nothing shall be able to separate us from His love. It is God who has justified us or made us righteous before Him so that the devil cannot condemn us. We are more than conquerors because Jesus is at the right hand of the Father interceding for us and the Holy Spirit is interceding through us when we don’t know what to pray.
What good news it is that God’s will is being prayed out for our lives whenever the Holy Spirit is praying through us, or Jesus is interceding for us in heaven. No distress, tribulation, famine, nakedness, peril, including the global economic crisis or COVID-19, shall be able to separate us from the love of God! That’s why we are more than conquerors because God is with us and for us!
These are the spiritual blessings that we need to bear in mind and acknowledge when we walk out the lifestyle of faith before the Lord. It will help us in our prayer life because Scripture tells us that the prayer of a righteous man avails much!
Judges 6:14 (NKJV) Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?”
Just like Gideon had to believe what he heard from the Lord and how God looked at him before he responded to the call to conquer the Midianites with only 300 soldiers, we also need to acknowledge how God looks at us in order for us to ride through this economic crisis. When we have our identity sorted out, we can concentrate on believing God to for a breakthrough or a turnaround. We can also pray through the crisis, hear from God and work on those things that He is leading us through, and receive grace to help in time of need with confidence.
Hebrews 11:33-34 (NKJV) who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
This Scripture recounts how the Old Testament saints experienced God when they trusted in Him. All of them are cheering us on in heaven as they observe what we are going through in our lives now. In fact, how we are facing this crisis, how we respond in faith and the way we are walking it out are being recorded in our case files right now! You and I are also in the “Hall Of Faith” because the righteous shall live by faith.
Sermon Series: You Are in the Hall of Faith! (Part 1)
罗马书 8:37 然而，靠着爱我们的主，在这一切的事上已经得胜有余了。
在患难中，我们本应成为得胜者并且超乎其上！当我们全然相信神完全的爱时，就没有什么能使我们与祂的爱隔离。 神为我们辩护，且得以我们在祂面前称义，使魔鬼不能控告我们。 我们不仅是得胜者，因为耶稣正在父的右边为我们祈求，而当我们不知道祷告什么时，圣灵也在藉着我们祈求。
士师记 6:14 耶和华观看基甸，说：“你靠着你这能力去从米甸人手里拯救以色列人，不是我差遣你去的吗？”
就像基甸不得不相信他从主那里听到的，相信在他回应神的呼召去带领300名士兵击败米甸人之前神是如何看待他的；我们也需要确认神是如何看待我们的，好教我们渡过這经济危机。 当我们弄明白了自己的身份后， 我们就可以全然相信神会为我们带来突破或转机。 我们也可以在危机中恒切祈祷，聆听神的声音，按照祂的带领动工，满怀信心地领受恩典在必要的时候出手相助。
這段经文重述了旧约圣徒是如何在信心中经历神。 他们都在天国为我们加油，因为他们察看着我们现在生命中所经历的一切。事实上，我们如何面对这场危机，如何在信心中回应，如何走出去的方式都正记录在我们的档案里！你我也在這 “信心圣殿”中， 因为义人因信而活。
