37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37
Through Jesus we are conquerors in all situations. No matter the challenge we face the Lord will lead us to victory. The more we grow in Christ the greater the challenges we will face in our lives. Every time we face a challenge and stand strong in the Lord and His mighty power we grow in our relationship with Christ and our capacity to take on greater challenges.
Growth in Christ often times come through challenges and trials. It is not a life or journey based on comfort. In our flesh we desire to be comfortable at all times. But in Christ He has called us to greater heights. The preparation to get there can be painful at times but the key is abiding in Him. As we abide in Him through daily bible study and prayer our hearts and minds are fixed upon Jesus Christ. When our minds are fixed upon Jesus we will be filled with the perfect peace of God that is beyond all human understanding. We must learn to rest in the Lord and in His strength. Victory in Christ is not found in fighting in our own strength or power. It is found in relying fully upon the Lord.
