Topic: We receive fresh power to be more than conquerors in the name of Jesus.

Text: Eph. 6:12; Isaiah 40:29-31.


The more than conquerors phrase can be explained in lay man’s terms to mean that before you go into a battle, before you engage in challenge of any sort, you know that your victory is a done deal, that you have it already in your hand! So, for us as Christians, ‘more than conquerors’ is a ready-made conquest! Hallelujah.

This title, ‘more than conquerors’ that has been conferred on us is not a thing we should deal with as a lip-service thing and hence handle with levity; it’s something we must cherish, treasure, work hard to retain, regardless that we didn’t acquire the title by our might or power, but by grace alone. As we pray today, we will receive fresh power that will enable us to retain this title for ever in the name of Jesus. Amen.

There are records of Bible characters who were invested with divine power but were careless and reckless with it, causing them to lose the power. This will not be our portion in the name of Jesus.

Saul, who considered himself “little in his own eyes”, but regardless had the rare privilege of being choosing as the first king in Israel and was anointed for this accordingly. However, by an act of disobedience, the anointing power departed from him and a distressing spirit instead came upon him (1 Samuel 16:14).

Samson was another character, consecrated, and spiritually empowered for a special task, but like Saul, he missed it; he was careless and reckless with the anointing power and consequently became a prey in the hands of his enemies – a case of the ‘arrester becoming the arrested’. Beloved, there are lessons for us to learn from the examples here, which is not to toy with the anointing power on us so that we don’t lose it.

Though we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers…, but, putting on the whole armour will empower and strengthen, guard and keep us perpetually as more than conquerors. Power in this regard shall come upon us this season in the name of Jesus. God bless you. SHALOM.
