Under Gods Command
More than Conquerors

Romans 8 37-39: For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord

Powers are unseen forces of evil in the universe, forces like Satan and his fallen angels.

Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

These who are not “flesh and blood” are demons over whom Satan has control. They are not mere fantasies-they are very real, we face a powerful army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, these beings become our enemies, and they try every device to turn us away from him and back to sin. Although we are assured of victory, we must engage in the struggle until Christ returns, because Satan is constantly battling against all who are on the Lord’s side. We need supernatural power to defeat Satan, and God has provided this by giving us his Holy Spirit within us and his armor surrounding us.

Lets Bring it Home: If you feel discouraged, remember Jesus words to Peter. “On this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it” (Matthew 16:18)
In Christ we are super-conquerors, and his love will protect us form any such forces.
