More Than Conquerors in the Darkest of Times 5: Children & Heirs of God

[Series: More Than Conquerors in the Darkest of Times] In these incredibly uncertain, even frightening, times many wonder: “What is the greatest form of security?” and “How can my family and I be kept safe?” Even more importantly: “How do I get rid of this fear and anxiety in my life?” In this episode we see how the great Love of God is the answer to all:

  • We are “more than conquerors” (Romans 8:37) by means of Him who loved us”. That Love and understanding that Love is key.
  • What’s really at the bottom of all fear and how it’s overcome.
  • What it means to be adopted into the family of God.
  • How the Spirit bears witness to us that we are the children of God.
  • What it means to be a “joint heir” with Christ.
  • What it means when God glorifies us.

[Series: More Than Conquerors in the Darkest of Times] There are times in our lives when we are suddenly hit with a crisis. Like a car getting slammed broadside on the road. But no matter how dark and frightening the crisis — even the current Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic — God reigns supreme. And that makes all the difference in our lives!

  • The challenge of a crisis: above all remembering that God is King of all.
  • The profound importance of Romans chapter 8 and how this powerful chapter can bring powerful stability and victory to our lives, no matter the crisis.
  • The major themes of Romans 8.

THIS KING – the audio version

[This is the audio version. Click here for the written version]

I have become increasingly concerned over the hysteria and panic over the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. True, we must be careful and take wise action. However, the overreaction and downright panic are much worse than the disease itself.

If God did not exist, I can see why we should panic. But He does exist. Not only that, but He is also good. Supremely good. He reigns over all, even over global pandemics like Coronavirus.

Last week, I asked for the Lord’s help to bring encouragement to my brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as those who don’t know Him. Several times I sat down to map out ideas, scriptures, and thoughts. It just didn’t come together. Then, early this past Sunday morning, The Lord implanted an incredible idea. In mere minutes, I developed an outline tracing the whole path of the message, the scriptures and concepts. The writing of this just flowed. I was overwhelmed with joy and strong encouragement. I just knew that this represented our King’s heart for His children and for this frightened world.

Here is a recording of what the Lord gave me. It’s called THIS KING. May you be encouraged, blessed and at peace knowing that HE overrules all!
