The Power to Solve the Problem

The Power to Solve the Problem

“Overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” Ro 8:37 NLT

Everyone has problems. The only people who don’t—are in cemeteries. The real problem is—how we handle our problems. Often we try to solve them with our own power. How can you tell when you’re doing that? Because you’re tired all the time! You’re like the guy who said, “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.” Or we’re like the lady who said, “Just about the time I try to make ends meet, somebody moves the ends.” We say things like, “I’m doing okay under the circumstances.” Well, what are you doing under them? Someone has said that circumstances are like a mattress; if you’re on top you rest easy, but if you’re underneath you suffocate! What’s the answer? Take your focus off your problems and put it on God’s promises. Here’s one of them: “Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble?” (v. 35 NLT). Paul answers, “No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” The word “conqueror” means “one who overcomes by gaining control.” And Paul says that we are “more than” conquerors (NKJV). To be a conqueror means to fight a battle and win. To be more than a conqueror means to win a battle without having to fight. Jesus fights on your behalf; He does it in you, and through you, and that makes you “more than” a conqueror.
