Overwhelming Victory

If God is for us, who can be against us? 
He that did not hesitate to spare His own Son 
but gave Him up for us all—
can we not trust such a God to give us
everything else that we can need?
I have become absolutely convinced 
that nothing in God’s whole world 
has any power to separate us from 
the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord!
No, in all these things 
we win an overwhelming victory 
through Him who has proved his love for us.
Romans 8
Some days all I can do is marvel at my own weakness.
And, in spite of it all, God continues to draw me up
closer to where He is and convince me to trust Him.
Oh, the number of times I stumble over 
situations and circumstances that trip thoughts of 
doubt or fear or wondering why some things are the way they are.
God did not hesitate to give it all up for us.
Can we not trust such a God to give us
everything we need? 

This morning, I declare that 
I am ABSOLUTELY convinced that nothing
separates me from His love, 
not even the mental gymset I must 
dismantle on a daily basis.
Paul says that in all these things--
troubles, pain, lack, suffering, affliction, distress--
we win an overwhelming victory
through Him, who has proved
His love for us.
Today, Lord, win through me!
Your love and Your way of seeing things 
that cross my path are my keys 
for walking every now moment victoriously.
If I am going to be overwhelmed today, 
I think I would like to be overwhelmed by victory.
I am absolutely convinced that this is not only possible;
it is why You sent Your Son.
That He would live His life through me--
every single moment of the day.
That  heaven and earth would meet in my life.
And declare heaven's victory.
Yep, that's the kind of day I want this to be.
