Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Romans 8:37
Today was the dedication service of a church that is close to my heart and it was so wonderful being here. God has been so good to me to give me such wonderful people who love me and are always happy to see me. The sermon was based around the concept of God Is Able. Of the examples given, the one that stuck out to me was about Daniel in the lion’s den. The preacher pointed out that most of us would be happy to have just survived, hobbling out of our place of torment and testing, but Daniel got out completely unscathed. This led to guiding the sermon towards teaching the idea that when God’s Word speaks of us being more than conquerors, it means that we aren’t just barely getting out of the battle with a few less casualties than our enemies, it means praising and worshiping our way to complete victory in which we come out untouched with spoils.
When I was going through that time with my ex I felt as if I was in a lion’s den and when I called my parents to pray over the phone later on, I mentioned that and they told me they had gotten that same exact feeling! Today’s sermon just felt so on target for me. I felt like God was saying “this is where I took you from.” He has taken me from a lion’s den MUCH better and more sure of herself after having gone through it and I am waiting in anticipation for what God wants to reveal tomorrow for the Sunday sermon!
Thank You that You took me through a lion’s den unscathed. Thank You that even if the hurt was SO very deep, it only caused me to come out with a deeper relationship with You that I could never have had should I have never gone through this. I thank You that there is none like You and that You have taken my broken spirit and created a mosaic with the pieces and called me beautiful for Your craftsmanship that is now more ingrained in me. I thank You that through You, we are more than conquerors. We can truly worship You through our storms. We can truly praise the shackles loose to find the purpose was for another soul to be saved. I love You Jesus with all my heart, mind, soul and strength.
