This new creation that we have become can conquer! We are more than conquerors according to Paul in Romans 9:37. We may have heard this statement used often among Christians when trials come, but we need to look at the context in Paul's letter (9:26-39). We who have answered God's call are conformed to the likeness of Jesus (We have been made in the image and likeness of God.). We are also justified. Therefore no one can bring any charge against us for we have been declared "not guilty" because Jesus died and rose for us. We are then glorified by the impartation of the Holy Spirit who "helps us in our weakness", who "intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express . . in accordance with God's will."
Because of all this nothing can separate us from God's love; nothing can come between us and God. It is more than just standing beside God or being attached to God. We are not just "two peas in a pod" or "attached at the hip." No, we have God within us. How can we be separated from something which is within us? We can't. And since we are united with him we can conquer anything.
For Reflection: What needs to be conquered in my life? In the world around me?
Let us pray. Lord Jesus, I believe that you live within me, that we are united by the work of the Father, your death and resurrection and the indwelling of your Spirit. I always want to act in union with you to conquer whatever needs to be defeated according to your will.
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
