Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37
During the American Revolution, the Continental Army under George Washington made an almost miraculous retreat from Brooklyn across Manhattan, but they were badly outnumbered by the incoming British troops. “If every nerve is not strained to recruit a new army with all possible expedition,” Washington wrote to his brother, “I think the game is pretty nearly up…. You can form no idea of the perplexity of my situation. No man, I believe, ever had a greater choice of difficulties, and less means to extricate himself from them.” But Washington had a firm grip on the truth of the providence of God, and he didn’t give up.
If we have a firm grip on God’s sovereignty and providence, we’ll not give up. God created us to be victors, not to be losers. Paul exclaimed to the Corinthians: “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Corinthians 15:57).
In our walk with Him, we need to be enthusiastic about the life God has given us, the future He has promised us, and the help He has offered us. He is sovereign. He rules over all. Today live like someone who is more than a conqueror through Him!
A superintending Providence is ordering everything for the best, and… in due time, all will end well. George Washington
Nothing Can Separate Us (Romans 8:35-39)
